Malta-An unforgettable experience for the 6AG

Thinking back to our trip to Malta, it can be said, it was mostly remarkable that we had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the rich history and natural beauty of this Mediterranean island. Malta surprised us with exciting excursions and cultural experiences that left a lasting impression on all of us.

Our journey was incredibly pleasant, it started on June, 3rd. We arrived on Monday evening and met our host families in St. Julian’s. From Tuesday to Thursday, we visited the European School of English (ESE) which we truly enjoyed since our teacher Bheka was extraordinarily friendly. The class was primarily focused on communication and facts about the Maltese culture and therefore it was totally exhilarating and insightful. In the afternoons and on the holidays, we made various interesting trips with our teachers Mag.a Andrea Kerschbaumer and Mag. Walter Secco, including several city tours with guides and visits at outstandingly beautiful beaches.

One of the highlights of our stay was the half day Valletta tour on Tuesday, where we explored the historic Upper Barrakka Gardens, marvelled at the intricate beauty of St. John’s Co-Cathedral, and learned interesting facts about the Auberge de Castille.
Another memorable excursion was the Half Day Mdina & Rabat Tour on Thursday, where we visited St Paul’s Cathedral, the Mdina Cathedral and the Cathedral Square. The ancient charm of Mdina and Rabat gave us an insight into Malta’s past and its cultural heritage.
Our adventure continued with a full day Malta tour to the breathtaking boat tour of Blue Grotto, where we were mesmerised by the stunning sea caves and crystal-clear waters. The natural beauty of Malta’s coastline left us in awe of the island’s geological wonders.
Exploring the island of Gozo on a full-day tour was another unforgettable experience since we made a boat ride at Dwejra Bay and had a glimpse of the Blue Hole.
Our last day at Comino’s Blue Lagoon was a perfect way to unwind and enjoy the beaches and turquoise waters. Swimming in the sea and basking in the sun provided us with a much-needed respite and a chance to bond with our classmates.

Overall, our school trip to Malta was a journey of discovery, adventure, and cultural immersion. It did not only play a crucial part in getting to know a different environment and exploring this beautiful island but it also strengthened our bonds to our teachers and classmates significantly. Therefore our 8-day Malta stay will undoubtedly be cherished in our memories for years to come.
