PROJECTS 2018-2022



Nature Trust (Malta) has in the past years given great importance to environmental education - so much so that it is one of the three pillars on which the NGO is built. It was for this very reason that Nature Trust (Malta) are proud to be the representatives of FEE in the Maltese Islands since 2002. This opportunity opened the way for schools to practice sustainable development.

Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) is a programme designed specifically for secondary and post secondary students. The main aim is to carry out investigations on local environmental issues and propose solutions through investigative reporting and photojournalism. The goal of YRE is to engage youth in resolving environmental problems and issues.

PRESS KIDS is a national programme based on YRE for primary students aged 7-10


LEAF (Learning About Forests) is an international programme locally run by Nature Trust Malta. It has been officially introduced in Malta during the last scholastic year. The programme works in parallel with the already established environmental education programmes; Eco-Schools (locally known as EkoSkola) and YRE (Young Reporters for the Environment).

The need to learn about forests goes beyond how green or less green the Maltese islands might or should look to the odd tourist or the keen environmentalist. In essence it is a deeper need to understand the key role forests play for sustainable life on our planet and whether that role is being compromised by the way of life we lead. It is not just about luring young learners to become intrigued by the joys and wonders of the forest and its inhabitants.

It is an opportunity to sensitize young learners and youth alike to appreciate the intricate relationships that take place in local woodlands and in forests around the world and how these can be compromised by the choices we make each day. The programme addresses all the functions forests fulfill for people; cultural, ecological, economical and social.


A programme to empower students to be the change our sustainable world needs by engaging them in fun, action-orientated learning. Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is operated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).


Nature Trust (Malta) has in the past years given great importance to environmental education in our Islands believing that environmental education is the very essence for a men tality change in the Maltese Islands towards environmental awareness and improvement.

EkoSkola aims at mobilizing the whole school to empower students to adopt an active role in environmental decision-making and action in their school and in their community. Schools that have successfully achieved achieved this goal are awarded a Green Flag – a prestigious eco-label testifying the school’s commitment to fostering sustainable lifestyles.


The EWWR aims to raise awareness about the importance of waste reduction and encourage European citizens to change their behaviour in respect of their consumption and production patterns.

It encourages a wide range of audience to get involved. During this week, thousands of organisations all over Europe organise a special activity focused on reducing waste or increasing recycling.

EWWR participants may also choose to participate in the European Waste Reduction Awards. One participant from each category will be selected to represent Malta as a nominee for these prestigious European awards. Winners will be recognised at an award ceremony at European level

In order to give local initiatives a better chance of gaining recognition for their efforts, in the past years WasteServ has also organised awards on a local level.


Dinja Wahda is BirdLife's BIG GREEN SCHOOL PROJECT and it's just for primary school kids. Dinja Wahda is full of activities, full of fun and action for the class and for the school. There's visits to nature reserves, there's recycling, there's art, there's craft, there's games and lots more.

But it is also VERY important. When you do Dinja Wahda you LEARN about nature, you learn about animals and plants and the environment. Also you HELP the environment. The environment is in BIG trouble and it needs our help. And if the environment is in trouble, oh dear! Then we humans are in trouble too and all life on earth is in trouble!

eTwinning Plus

eTwinning is the community for schools in Europe. eTwinng offers a platform for staff (teachers, head teachers, librarians, etc.) working in a school in one of the European contries involved, to communicate, collaborate, develop projects, share and, in short, feel and be part of the most exciting learning community in Europe.

Erasmus +


The school has been participating in Erasmus+ projects for a number of years now.  It benefitted from the 'Read It' Project (2018-2021) which was related to English literacy.  It enabled the school to improve the students’ English literacy levels by training up to thirty educators in the UK. The outcome was outstanding. Another Erasmus+ project was ‘More or Less’ which focused on Maths.  Some staff attended extensive training in the UK and shared the pedagogical skills they acquired with their colleagues to support the learning and understanding of mathematical concepts.
At the moment we are participating in three projects.  One is entitled ‘CPD through foreign experience in Finland’.  Four of our educators have already experience Finnish education to gain insight on how to improve education provision within our context.
The second project is entitled ‘Smart Kids of Digital World’ (2019-2022).  This projects focuses on enabling the students to use technology effectively in a way that it would not jeopardise their childhood. The other participating schools are in Spain, Turkey and Poland.

The third project was launched in 2020.  It is entitled ‘Mindfulness and Wellbeing in European Schools’.  Our school is the coordinating school and is collaborating closely with other schools situated in Croatia, Estonia, Ireland, Portugal and Italy.  Our students are highly benefitting from the activities that are linked to this project given the challenging times that we are all experiencing.
