Workshop with Aneurin Karadog

18 boys from year 9 had the opportunity to take part in a workshop with the Poet Aneurin Karadog. The pupils were set a challenge to write a poem about War and had the opportunity to read their poems at the end of the day, with some pupils rapping their poems to the beat of Aneurin’s post. Many Thanks to Aneurin and congratulations to the boys for creating memorable poems that will be displayed in the school in the near future.

Assembly Members visiting the school.

It was a pleasure to welcome Assembly Members to the school recently to discuss the Governments vision to get a million people speaking Welsh before 2050. The Assembly Members were, Mr. Jeremy Miles and Dr. Dai Lloyd. The pupils had the opportunity to give their opinion about the use of Welsh as well as talk about the difficulties that they face using Welsh in their communities. We look forward to hearing more about the project.

Sleepover

On a cold Friday night in November the annual year 8 sleepover was held. It was an evening full of activities with everyone enjoying the opportunity to socialise through the medium of Welsh. Pupils went swimming, made videos, played dodgeball and took part in a mannequin challenge. There was a feast of pizza and a disco to finish the evening before heading for our beds. The record was broken for the most hours slept in a sleepover this year – 4 hours! We are looking forward already to next year!
