The school also invested in the development of a meditation room ‘Shekinah’ or ‘God’s dwelling amongst us’. This room aims at providing the space for quality quiet time which is a needed necessity in the fast world we live in. This room was blessed and inaugurated by the Archbishop of Malta Mons. P. Cremona O.P. as part of the 15th year anniversary of the school.
