“SEMMA’ LEĦNEK – Għanjiet tal-Milied”

Għanjiet tal-Milied is an educational initiative aimed to liven up classrooms with Christmas Spirit!

This innovative project, rooted in the MPO’s mission to promote culture and arts, is intended for all children attending primary schools around the Maltese Islands, giving teachers and students access to several Christmas Carols in Maltese.  Under the artistic direction of Daniel Cauchi, these traditional carols are being re-created and recorded by the MPO with lyrics penned by renowned Maltese authors, with the intention of brining children closer to both classical music and our native language.

Furthermore, this venture aims to instigate children’s creativity by encouraging teachers and schools to produce small projects with these carols whilst adhering to health guidelines, through a readily available online kit. This includes the recorded tracks (in sing-along and full versions) as well as a number of engaging opportunities for children to relate to music, through the use of animations and illustrations, games and trivia as well as a carol presented in sign language, promoting Malta’s official third language.

Schools are invited to send videos of the activities organized to be shared on the MPO’s digital media platforms.
