Since returning from our half term holiday, the school has once again been a hive of activity both in lessons and in extra-curricular activities. Our Year 10 and 11 Welsh Literature students had the privilege of meeting one of the poets whose work is studied on the GCSE syllabus. The poet Rhys Iorwerth came to school and delivered an insightful and interesting presentation on his work. The Science Club is busy working on its ‘Space Project’, with some of our sixth form students going to the primary school to assist with their Science Club. Mrs Vickie Faulkner and I had the privilege of going to this year’s Rolls-Royce Science Prize Awards in London, where we met last year’s contenders, as well as meeting the other five schools who have reached the final this year. Prior to this visit a video was produced of what we have done so far in terms of the competition. This video will soon be available on our website. Things have started well for our sports’ teams again this half-term, with the under 16 and under 18 rugby teams gaining substantial victories against Llanfyllin and Llanidloes. Our under 18 hockey team has won the North Powys Hockey Championship, whilst our under 16 netball gained third place in the Powys championships. Congratulations! Since our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal was launched earlier this term, many pupils and staff have been busy collecting items and packing them to send to Eastern Europe. We set ourselves the aspirational target of a hundred boxes and we are well under way to achieving our target. We are very grateful to all who have contributed towards achieving this target of ‘a hundred boxes’. Year 12 pupils had a very informative visit to Cardiff last week and went to the National Assembly Building where they were met by some Assembly Members, namely Russell George that AM for Montgomeryshire and also Helen Mary Jones a former pupil at Caereinion, who represents Mid and West Wales in the Assembly. The trip was organised as part of the students’ Bacc course. Our half-termly attendance prize for the form with the highest attendance percentage was won by 7C for the first half term, with 8C in second place and 7G and 11G jointly third. These forms will be rewarded with early lunch.

PARENT APP NEC Trip tomorrow Fri 30th Nov 2018

The school trip to the NEC tomorrow is to the Good Food Show. It should only have been published to the relevant pupils in years 10 and 11, but due to a known fault with the app, it gets sent to all parents.

Unfortunately we are unable to correct the information in the app at the moment to amend the title to be more clear.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Braint fawr oedd cael gwahoddiad i ganu yn y Ffair Aeaf eleni. Aeth yr adran Gerddoriaeth a llond bws mini o leisiau swynol i berfformio yn y ffair. Cafwyd diwrnod llawn hwyl a sbri ac er bod y tywydd yn oer roedd y croeso yn gynnes iawn

It was a pleasure to have an invitation to sing at the Winter Fair this year. The Music department took a whole mini bus of magical voices to the fair. We had a day full of fun performing and although the weather was cold the welcome was very warm
