What a week! Heavy snow brought disruption to the area last week, with schools being affected in the same way as every other service. Caereinion School was forced to close its doors for three days, resulting in re-scheduling of Year 11 mock examinations and preventing our concert from being held on Wednesday evening. Unfortunately, due to the number of events already organised in the locality at this time of the year, it has not been possible to reschedule the concert. If you had bought tickets to the December 13th concert, please hand in your tickets at the school office and you will be reimbursed. Unfortunately, we have had to postpone one of the highlights of the school calendar, namely the Senior Citizens’ Tea, which was due to take place on December 19th. This event will definitely be held at another date and details of the rescheduled event will be distributed during the Spring Term.
After the unforeseen closure at the beginning of the week, school resumed its normal routine on Thursday. Not only did pupils and teachers return to lessons, but pupils and teachers also continued with their extra-curricular activities. Christmas Dinner was on the menu on Thursday and a number of pupils took advantage of the opportunity of savouring a traditional Christmas meal.
The school’s Science Club has been busy throughout the term, offering a very interesting and diverse programme. The club’s activities culminated last week with a session making bath-bombs, many of which, I suspect, will find their way to Christmas stockings. Mr Gareth Griffiths and Year 10 Agriculture students braved the winter weather on Friday and went to Deri Woods to plant some trees, an activity which had to be postponed on the previous Friday.
The under 15 RGC rugby match against Neath school which was postponed last Friday was played on Friday afternoon and as mentioned in last week, the team included a most encouraging representation from Caereinion High School.


Year 11 Mock Exams

Due to school closure, we will have to amend the Year 11 mock exams. The timetable will be as follows:
Oherwydd i’r ysgol fod ar gau fe fydd yn rhaid diwygio amserlen y ffugbrofion. Bydd yr amserlen newydd fel a ganlyn:

Thursday/Dydd Iau – Mamiaith and Ailiaith (WelshCymraeg), Biology/Bioleg and Option 2 subjects/pynciau Opsiwn 2 ( DT/DaTh, History/Hanes, Music /Cerdd and Spanish/Sbaeneg)

Friday – the exams that were to be sat on Tuesday
Dydd Gwener – yr arholiadau a oedd i’w sefyll ar ddydd Mawrth

Tomorrow, Wednesday 13th December 2017

Oherwydd nad yw safle’r ysgol yn ddiogel, ni fydd yr ysgol ar agor yfory.

Due to the fact that the school site is still unsafe, the school will be closed tomorrow.

  • Diana Awards

        A group of Year 11 girls had an excellent day in Cardiff at the Diana Awards. The Oasis team were presented with Diana Champion Volunteers Group award for their commitment and considerable time and effort they have put into the Oasis project. The team support Year 7’s in the school by visiting classrooms to get to know the pupils, doing surveys, playing games and covering relevant issues such as bullying. They also put on activities such as dodgeball at  lunchtime to help them mix and settle into school. The team travelled by train to City Hall, Cardiff for the presentation and attended workshops on developing community projects in the afternoon. The awards were presented by the Lord Lieutenant for South Glamorgan with a special guest present – Owain Doull Welsh Olympic Gold Medal Track Cyclist.
