All classes at Ghajnsielem Primary played their part in decorating the egg, which has a religious theme and represents the Glory of the Risen Lord.

Divided into 8 parts, the egg is representing several symbols of Christ, such as: the Cross; the Crown; the Lamb; the Beginning and the End; the Palm; the Holy Host; the Chalice with the Sacramental bread and vine; and the Symbol of Martyrdom.

The background colours are associated with the colours used in church throughout the year. The focal point of the Egg is a message written on a scroll: Hallelujah…. The Lord is Risen.

This coming Friday, representatives of the Gozo College Ghajnsielem Primary School will be at the Ministry for Gozo in Victoria, where they will receive their prize of a set of books for the school library, from the Minister for Gozo Dr Anton Refalo.
