Let us acknowledge the importance of properly disposing of our waste. He who understands how a trash-can works is nowadays considered a mastermind. Recycling appropriately is not strenuous work. The effects of each plastic cup and water bottle left behind last up to 450 years. According to international studies, humans have created enough plastic since the end of the second world in 1945 to coat the Earth entirely in clingfilm. So let us not suffocate our own home; by recycling and being responsible citizens we can ensure that Earth no longer suffers due to the lack of care of humankind but instead flourishes and breathes.

Milied li Jimla l-Qlub marks an annual date with unity, generosity and altruism as the students and teaching staff at St. Francis School, Sliema, work together towards a common goal: raising money for those in need. For us at St Francis School, Milied li Jimla l-Qlub is, in effect, a concrete way of experiencing the real meaning of Christmas as we work together and help each other understand that helping others warms up the hearts of those who put aside all differences and believe in the meaning of Christian charity and love, donating not only money but also, even more importantly, our time. This year, the money we raised, was donated to help people suffering from domestic violence.
