Malta Monday 24 April: Bugibba – Msida

Today was the Team’s most active and enjoyable day on Malta for visiting schools and bringing the harmony experience to hundreds of young children.

Our day began at 09.00 with a visit to St Paul’s Bay Primary School, just a 25 minute run from our apartment. Local runner Drew Lang, originally from Scotland, who we met yesterday and finished second in the 10k Veteran race, met us at the school and ran a short distance with us.

On yesterday’s report of the 10k local race there was a picture of his daughter holding the torch, so we had to add to their family photograph album by taking a photograph of him running with the torch. After a short distance we said our farewells to him and wished him success in his forthcoming races.

At Mosta Primary School, the children, in their immaculate school uniforms and sports tracksuits, were lined outside waiting for us and they gave the Team a brilliant reception and listened intently as we talked about peace, harmony and friendship.

The Team then headed a short distance to Naxxar Primary School where the whole school waited for us. We handed the torch to some of the older children who ran with the torch and passed it onto their friends around the playground. The Team gave a rousing rendition of the World Harmony Song to much applause of children and teachers.

Our last school visit of the morning was at Birkirkara B Primary School where we were welcomed in the school’s large and cool courtyard. As with all the other schools the children were so enthusiastic and excited to see us and were so receptive to the runners by chatting to them and asking questions. With over 300 children at this school, the children lined up on the outside of the courtyard and passed the torch along the line to each other. Once more the World Harmony Song was well received.

Our final visit for the day was to the island’s 10,000 student population University at Msida where we met Mr Acolina, the Head of the Sports Faculty. Many thanks have to go to student Eman Pulis who looked after us on the university site and made all the arrangements for us to have a nice and well-earned meal in the University cafeteria.

In the late afternoon we went to the local cable TV SMASH as they are going to show a 4 minute video about the World Harmony Run thanks to Valerie Farrugia (an official of the Maltese Athletic Association) and Xandru Grech (host of the programme and the Maltese record holder for 1500m and 800m).

You can send a message to the runners or read the messages.
