As we approach the end of term, school life is becoming increasingly busier. Year 11 are now in the midst of their mock examinations, an important aspect of GCSE preparation. Year 10 spent two days at the end of the week concentrating on their Work Skills studies. This forms a crucial element of their work experience, which will take place later in the year. Pupils are already busy making preparations with the work placements where they intend spending a week in the summer term. A number of Year 8 pupils are busy preparing with Mrs Lowri Williams for their Drama performance in the Christmas concert which will be held on Wednesday, December 13th. Mr Osian Davies and the Music Department are also busy at work and will be making an important contribution to the concert. The Governors had a busy week last week and we are grateful to them for their valuable contribution to school life. Representatives from the Governing Body distributed questionnaires at the Year 10 Parents’ Evening and we are thankful to all parents who took their time to fill these questionnaires. These questionnaires are currently being analysed by the governors and will assist us in making future decisions and deciding on various strategies. The Full Governing Body met on Thursday evening and we were fortunate to have the company of the Senior Pupils. Rhys Gittins and Kate Jones (Head Boy and Head Girl) spoke eloquently and honestly about their views of Caereinion and presented us with first-hand perspective of school life.
We are very pleased as a school to learn that seven of our Year 9 and Year 10 pupils have been selected for the under 15 RGC (Rygbi Gogledd Cymru – South section) squad to play against Neath schools. The match was due to be played on the Gnoll in Neath on Friday, December 8th. However, due to adverse weather conditions, the match was postponed. We wish the following well as they play against Neath in the near future:
Ryan Evans (Year 9), Steffan Evans (Year 10), Cai Herdman (Year 10), Rhys Jones (Year 10), William Lydford (Year 9), Dylan Nutting (Year 10), Callum Pratten (Year 10)
It is quite an achievement to have so many players from the same school in the squad.


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.
