recovered most plastic bottles and further to inaugurate a Christmas tree made

Assistant Dr Stephen Spiteri and addresses were made by the Naxxar Mayor Dr
Maria Deguara and Mr Vincent Farrugia, Green Mt Chairman and GRTU Director
General. On this occasion Green MT also donated recycle bins to the school.
