The day was made even more special with a visit from a remarkable sports personality, Mr. Nicky Farrugia, who is a Triathlete Champion. He shared his inspiring journey with the students, which included an incredible feat of swimming from Sicily to Gozo back in 1985.
After Mr. Farrugia’s motivating talk, the entire school was all set to participate in the European Schools Sports Day. The students and staff at St. Patrick’s Salesian School were split into two groups for various activities. One group enjoyed a refreshing 40-minute walk along the beautiful Promenade in Sliema, taking in the fresh air and scenic views. Meanwhile, the other group got into the sporting spirit with a friendly basketball tournament.
