It is difficult to believe that we have reached the end of the first half of the Spring Term. The past five weeks have been a hive of activity and the five weeks have just flown past. The last week of the half term was not an exception. Year 9 pupils have been busy sitting internal examinations and were glad to see Thursday afternoon, when the examinations came to an end.
The under eighteen netball team worked very hard and gave their opponents a challenging time in the Powys netball final. Although Caereinion lost the match against Christ College, Brecon, the girls are to be congratulated on their performance.
Some of our Agriculture pupils spent two days at Glynllifon College this week and gained first-hand experience of various agricultural tasks, such as hedge laying. The two days spent at the college provided a valuable experience for our pupils.
We were pleased to welcome Mr Martin Morgan from OSIRIS training this week. Mr Morgan will be working with the school on a Teaching and Learning project during the next few months. We are privileged that Mr Morgan has been willing to come to Caereinion to share his expertise and to work with a group of teachers during the day and also to hold an after school workshop.
In order to bring the half term to a close, Friday, February 9th was nominated as a ‘non-uniform’ day. Pupils were permitted to wear their choice of clothing for a pound.
At the end of a busy and full term, I wish staff and pupils all the best for the half term break.
