FEBRUARY 5TH

Two Year 7 pupils, Elain Owen and Tili Lloyd represented the school at a STEM competition in Builth Wells last Monday. Their challenge was to build a car powered by a balloon. Their efforts were well rewarded and they won second prize. Congratulations!

The under 14 rugby team played against Ysgol Botwnnog and secured a clear victory – Botwnnog 22 Caereinion 33. Man of the match was Huw Evans, with William Lydford scoring three tries and Cian Hanratty and Arthur Powell scoring a try each. We wish the team well as they proceed to the next round, the Welsh quarter finals.

The under 16 girls’ hockey team played very well against Christ College Brecon and gave the victorious team a very challenging time. The final score was 3-2, with Moli Morgan scoring both goals for Caereinion.

Congratulations to the fifteen pupils from Caereinion who have secured a place in the Powys team which will be competing in a national cross country competition.

  • Theatre Severn ‘Teechers’

    Yr. 10 GCSE drama group enjoyed a rauscous rendition of ‘Teechers’ on Wednesday evening at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury. Blackeyed Theatre put on a great display of its highly-acclaimed production of John Godber’s classic comedy about life at a struggling ‘sink school’ for Mr Nixon, an unsuspecting new drama teacher.  TEECHERS brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the unique eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three Year 11 students about to leave school for good.  Will Mr Nixon abandon his students for a green and pleasant Grammar school? Who puts the bounce in Miss Prime, the PE teacher? Will Mrs Parry ever find her Koko? And why does everyone smell of spring onions? Crammed full of unforgettable characters, political left-hooks and razor-sharp comedy, TEECHERS is more relevant today than ever, a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.
