Head Teachers Blog Pennaeth

MONDAY JANUARY 15th, 2018

A new term is well under way and Christmas seems in the distant past. As this is the first blog of the new year, I would like to wish you all a happy new year. I trust that 2018 will be a good year for you on a personal level and I sincerely hope that it will be a memorable and successful year for the school. We welcome Mr Derek Kelly as a new member of the Mathematics department and are also pleased to see Mrs Ceri Harris with us on some days. We look forward to her full return to work after the half term holiday.

Whilst year 11 had their mock exams before Christmas, it was year 12 and 13’s turn to sit internal examinations at the beginning of term. We also wish Year 10 well in their examinations. Year 11 received their mock examination results on Thursday, as well as some external examination results. We congratulate those who performed well and trust that those who were disappointed will use the disappointment in a constructive way.

At the beginning of term we look back at every form’s attendance for the previous term. The three forms with the highest attendance percentages for the last half term were:

1st = 7G 98.7% 2nd = 7C 98.2% 3rd = 9B 97.9%

They will be awarded early lunch passes. Congratulations! The new half term presents every form with a new opportunity to compete in the form attendance competition.

We had some fantastic feedback for our open evening last night which we've been allowed to share. Thank you so much for these kind words and thank you to everyone that came along.

I attended, along with my 11 yr old son, your school open evening last night. Please express my thanks to all the staff involved. The whole experience was very upbeat, energetic and fairly informative. It’s great to come away with such a ‘feel good factor’ – particularly as Caereinion HS will be the most likely choice. My son is totally sold on science!

Can you pass on my congratulations to all the staff , sixformers and year 7/8 students involved in the open evening last night. I thought it was a lovely evening, promoted the school as a really friendly happy environment. The speeches were great, and the classroom activities were fun and enthusiastic, which was exactly what the kids needed to set them at ease, and get them excited about coming to the school. So, well done! It was good that our group going round was small, much smaller than other years, and Hywel did a great job of adding humor to the walkabout, which again helped the kids feel at ease. The teachers did great quizes and activities for the kids and it all went really well. Loved the pirates especially !
