‘Healthy Packed Lunch Day’ at Żejtun Secondary School
How does the idea of coming to school and enjoy a healthy, freshly-prepared packed lunch, at a very smart price sound? A nutritious and hassle-free initiative, caught the interest of over 300 students and staff members at St Thomas More College, Secondary School, Żejtun and reached its climax on Friday 8th April 2016.
This fund-raising activity was a joint force between the students and teachers of the EkoSkola committee, the School Council and a group of voluntary members of staff. Moreover, it was purposely combined with the annual Sports Day to promote the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The wholesome packed lunch, which was served during the midday break, consisted of a Maltese Ftira with a filling of tuna salad, an orange and cocoa cup cake and a glass of squeezed orange juice freshly picked from the gardens of our school.
The success of this activity was measured not only by the record number of packed lunches sold but also by the number of people from the different areas of the school community who came together to work as one whole team.
