San Anton School awarded LEAF shield

During last year’s FEE Award ceremony San Anton School forest team was awarded the prestigious LEAF shield  for an interesting project they had about the old forest remnants at Mġiebaħ valley limits of Mellieħa.

Schools which would have successfully  satisfied the criteria will stand a chance of winning this prestigious shield that endorses the work carried out and symbolizes their commitment for the coming years. Each year an extra ‘leaf’ would be added to the shield with the scholastic year engraved provided that the forest team of that school would have met the goals set and satisfied the programme’s criteria.

The idea of this memento originated from last year’s LEAF theme : ‘products, services and  benefits from forests.’ The base of the shield is made of discarded wooden pallets whereas the actual LEAF symbol is  handcrafted by a Gozitan artist from used newspapers.
