Wind of Change

Tarxien Middle School recently took part in the Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE 2019) competition.

YRE gives young people aged 11-25 a platform to research environmental issues and promote solutions through investigative reporting, photography, and video journalism. Their projects engage young people to tell stories about the world and environment.

Student Juan Orsini submitted two photographs, together with the corresponding text.

Survivor (pictured above): Whilst enjoying some free time at Joanne Gardens – Tarxien, I have come across this tree with a broken branch caused by the gale force winds which hit Malta last February. Fortunately, this tree survived and may the authorities ensure that more trees are planted around the island to make Malta greener and less polluted.

Rest in Peace

Rest in Peace:   Should we rest our minds when seeing this sight in a public garden? May the authorities ensure that for every fallen tree, new trees are planted.
