The Mayor again welcomed the children and informed them the Council meetings procedures as well how important decisions are taken during Council meetings. The Students’ Council President, the young Alexei Borg, introduced the children in the council and forwarded some proposals to the Birgu Local Council to be done at the St Rocco Primary School. He then gave the floor to the other members of the Council to give their suggestions which included the proposal to install a photovoltaic system, to plant flowers and plants around the school as well as to install Bring In Sites for waste separation.
