Unusual geography lesson for St Margaret College students

A group of about 130 boys and girls enjoyed a geography lesson with a difference during a special Air Malta flight. And for some of the primary school students from St Margaret’s College, this was the first time they had boarded a plane, It was still a unique experience for the whole group, as the pilot flew the aircraft specifically for the students to be able to get aerial views of Maltese localities, the islands and Sicily, particularly the Etna volcano with its top still covered in snow.

The Captain of the Air Malta Airbus A320 enriched the students’ educational experience by giving  a detailed explanation of the route and of places of interest the children could see from the aircraft windows during the 90-minute flight.

Headmaster Edwin Debono said the College strongly believed in out-of-class educational experiences. “This is an unbelievable experience. You can see the excitement, many of them hardly slept at all or woke up early… and the pilot explaining everything…”

Back on terra firma, rather than showing any signs of tiredness, the children were full of energy, possibly hoping for a similar experience in the future.
