One’s effort is one’s reward

Caereinion High School’s mission, our central purpose, is to provide a stimulating bilingual environment - one which fosters a high quality of educational excellence in which hard work is rewarded.

The school’s main aims are to :

  • • foster self-esteem and self-discipline and to develop a sense of pride and respect in one’s school and community;
  • • ensure, as far as possible, that each pupil fulfills his/her potential;
  • • encourage regular parental involvement by fostering open two-way communication between school and home;
  • • provide equality of opportunity for all pupils (academically, socially, linguistically and culturally) regardless of ability, gender or background;
  • • provide a happy, secure and caring environment in which learning is valued and encouraged;
  • • provide pupils with the skills necessary to fully participate in a rapidly changing modern society.

As we approach the end of term, school life is becoming increasingly busier. Year 11 are now in the midst of their mock examinations, an important aspect of GCSE preparation. Year 10 spent two days at the end of the week concentrating on their Work Skills studies. This forms a crucial element of their work experience, which will take place later in the year. Pupils are already busy making preparations with the work placements where they intend spending a week in the summer term. A number of Year 8 pupils are busy preparing with Mrs Lowri Williams for their Drama performance in the Christmas concert which will be held on Wednesday, December 13th. Mr Osian Davies and the Music Department are also busy at work and will be making an important contribution to the concert. The Governors had a busy week last week and we are grateful to them for their valuable contribution to school life. Representatives from the Governing Body distributed questionnaires at the Year 10 Parents’ Evening and we are thankful to all parents who took their time to fill these questionnaires. These questionnaires are currently being analysed by the governors and will assist us in making future decisions and deciding on various strategies. The Full Governing Body met on Thursday evening and we were fortunate to have the company of the Senior Pupils. Rhys Gittins and Kate Jones (Head Boy and Head Girl) spoke eloquently and honestly about their views of Caereinion and presented us with first-hand perspective of school life.
We are very pleased as a school to learn that seven of our Year 9 and Year 10 pupils have been selected for the under 15 RGC (Rygbi Gogledd Cymru – South section) squad to play against Neath schools. The match was due to be played on the Gnoll in Neath on Friday, December 8th. However, due to adverse weather conditions, the match was postponed. We wish the following well as they play against Neath in the near future:
Ryan Evans (Year 9), Steffan Evans (Year 10), Cai Herdman (Year 10), Rhys Jones (Year 10), William Lydford (Year 9), Dylan Nutting (Year 10), Callum Pratten (Year 10)
It is quite an achievement to have so many players from the same school in the squad.

Ddydd Mercher aeth tim dan 12 a dan 14 Caereinion i Drenewydd i gynrychioli’r ysgol yn nhwrnament Gogledd Powys. Daeth y tim dan 12 yn 2il, gyda dwy gem gyfartal ac ennill dwy gem. Daeth y tim dan 14 yn 3ydd. Profiad gwych i’r bechgyn. Diolch hefyd i Swav am gynorthwyo gyda’r trefniadau.

On Wednesday the under 12 and under 14’s boys hockey team travelled to Newtown to represent the school in the North Powys tournament. The under 12’s team came 2nd, by winning two games and drew 2 games. The under 14’s came 3rd. A fab experience and opportunity for the boys. Also a big thank you to Swav for his support.
