There was a visit to Cat Cafe, where students were able to pick up and stroke the kittens and a short talk was given by Animal Guardians Malta. Another group planted indigenous trees and then Dr Brian Farrugia delivered a short talk. Other students visited some wards within the facility.

Kercem Primary said that it was a positive learning experience for all.
