Congratulations to Elain and Tili from Year 7 who won the Silver award in the skills competition Wales final in the Stem Schools Challenge in Builth Wells this week. The competition was open to all schools in Wales. They had to design and make a balloon powered car to complete a 5 metre length. The total cost of the car had to be no more than £10 for all materials.
The car could be any size and shape and made of any materials, but all parts had to be made by the team, including wheels, axles, and body. The girls had 2 hrs to build their car, half an hour to test it and 1 hour to complete the challenge. Good teamwork was key to their success. A huge congratulations to them both.
The under 14’s rugby team lost 10-5 to Cwmtawe in the quarter finals of the Welsh Cup. The boys were unlucky to lose in the last few minutes. The conditions were not the best with the boys putting on a brave display in all the mud!!!
The Under 13’s and Under 15’s are North Powys Champions after competing in Cobra on Wednesday. They will now go into the quarter finals of the North Wales Cup.
Congratulations to Molly who was the winner of the ipad attendance competition. All those pupils with 95% or above attendance last year were entered into the competition with the lucky winner getting their name pulled out of the hat in assembly. Well done Molly.

What a fantastic day! Sunday the 17th of May over 70 Caereinion High School pupils, staff, parents and friends attended the Race For Life event in Aberystwyth. This is Cancer Research’s largest fundraiser where women take part in a 5K or 10K run to raise money to research for a cure to the 200 different types of cancer.
Caereinion have taken part yearly in this event for the last 5 years and have raised an amazing sum of over £10,000 to date. But this year we beat our own personal record of how many were taking part and the amount of money raised!
We would like to thank Alan Watkins, A W Coaches Llanfair Caereinion for kindly running 2 buses free of charge to Aberystwyth, this allowed us to collect £212. The girls had been very busy baking and held a cake stall in School which raised £313.82, and the sponsorship money was a staggering £2,953.51 with money still coming in! In all, the school has raised an astonishing £3,480 which will go to cancer research. This is an outstanding achievement for those who took part and for Caereinion High School and is a true reflection of our pupil’s determination.
Caereinion have again had a busy year raising money for charities. As well as the success of Race For Life, we have raised £2,700 between Breast and Testicular Cancer Charities, £908 for Red Nose Day and £265 for Children in Need. We will now start thinking of Race For Life 2016 and other fundraising events in order to break our School record once again!! Thank you again for our pupils hard work and for the continuous support given to us by the parents and the community.
