Għargħur Primary won one of three National Prizes awarded during the first-ever National Prize Giving Ceremony in the Dementia Sector.

Għargħur Primary’s project was one of 30 nominated for these awards.

In her first comments, Year 5 teacher Ms Marisa Pace said “My gratitude goes to our hard-working Year 5 students for their contribution in making a difference in the lives of people with dementia and to those individuals who nominated our school and recognised our project as innovative and highly significant in raising awareness on the issue of dementia”.

Għargħur Primary students did research on the subject and visited an old-peoples home and met people suffering from dementia.
