Recycling is important because if we don’t recycle it causes a lot of illness. It causes illness, sickness and a lot more things like that. You can recycle in the bins at bring in sites. The bins are there to recycle things like paper, plastic, metal and glass. In your homes there are bins but they are not recycle bins. You don’t have to buy those big recycling bins. You just put one for paper, one for plastic, one for metal and other one for glass. Recycle no matter what happens.

Ugly Things in a Beautiful Walk…Żurrieq

During Easter Camp this year, we went for a walk to Wied Bassasa organised by Majjistral Parks. Ms. Annalise Falzon was our guide. During the walk, we took photographs of different things, most of them nbeautiful:  like flowers and insects and beautiful views including Filfla and the surrounding fields. However, there were some ugly things too like the pile of stones in the picture. We didn’t like these because they make the area look ugly. Apart from being ugly, they will remain there for a very long time. We think that the people who put them there should have taken them back to where they got them originally or given them to someone else who needed stones like these for building. The whole area where there are the stones is now damaged and in fact there are no flowers growing there. Any visitors (even tourists) who visit the area, will think what a dirty place this is instead of enjoying the countryside and the amazing view of the sea and Filfla. We wish that people will stop littering our countryside.

Article 11-14 yrs 1st place National Winner: Sliema – where has the “peace” gone?!

Our school is located in the heart of Sliema. Over the past years, our journey towards school has always ended with a peaceful, picturesque ride by the Sliema coastline. The situation has, however, changed drastically over the past year. This change has been mainly brought about by the extensive construction and road works being carried out. These works lead to a variety of problems: traffic congestion, potholes and broken pavements, lack of parking, noise pollution and air pollution. The dust particles in the air have also affected the pH value of rain water, making it alkaline. Among our proposals, we think that only a limited number of permits for construction should be approved at one time and there should be prompt resurfacing of roads. Sliema residents deserve peace and tranquillity in their day to day lives.

Right now, the topic of nitrate leaching is a very widely-discussed topic throughout the world, including in Malta. A group of students investigated the amount of nitrates leached by three different types of fertilizers in two different types of soil. Water soluble fertilizer, fertilizer pellets and cow manure were used because we wanted to study a variety of natural and artificial fertilizers. Loam and clay soils were used as these soils are quite common in Malta. This article summaries the findings of this study.
