Caereinion High School has participated in the Race For Life for the last 8 years and have successfully raised a great amount of money for Cancer Research. During the last 2 years, we decided to create our own event here at the school, ‘Race at your Place’ in order for the girls, boys and teachers to participate and it has been a resounding success raising £6,000 in 2016 and £6,200 in 2017!!
Over the years we have supported many charities that are very close to our hearts; in 2016 we donated to Cancer Research UK, Lingden Davies Centre and Birmingham Children’s Hospital. In 2017 we donated to Cancer Research UK and The Harry Johnson Trust which offers help and support to children and teenagers who receive care from the Oncology Team at The Princess Royal Hospital in Shropshire. This year the discussion was held within tutor groups and it was pleasing to see the eagerness of our pupils to want to support so many charities. We have therefore decided that we will be donating to four charities this year; Cancer Research UK, Wales Air Ambulance, British Hear Foundation and Hope House.
The event will take place on Friday afternoon; 13/7/18. A team of Year 12 pupils will have organised the event and we hope that every pupil from Years 7-10 will participate. There is no fee to join in, but we have sponsor forms and a medal for each one taking part. If your son/daughter does not wish to participate, they can support from the side-lines and cheer their fellow pupils on to the finish line! Lastly, we would love to see a sea of pink and blue as these are the Race for Life colours so pupils can change during lunchtime ready for the event.
I hope that your son/daughter would like to participate in this great event. Collecting sponsorship money is optional, but attached is a sponsor form if it is needed and will also be handed out during tutor time. Please return the sponsor form and money on the day of the race.
Thank you and I look forward to a successful day at Caereinion High School seeing a sea of pink and blue supporting these worthwhile charities.

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’.
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.
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.
Oherwydd cyflwr peryglus y safle a’r ffaith fod rhai ffyrdd yn dal yn beryglus, bydd yr ysgol ar gau eto yfory.
Due to the condition of the site and the fact that some roads are still dangerous, the school will be closed again tomorrow.
