This week...

Here goes my second update and there is much to share with you.

A group of leaners this week had the opportunity to work with Sophie McKeand.  Sophie was working with learners on extended writing and it was great to see the work that was produced.  Sophie is a writer based in Wales she has poetry published in Adbusters, Dark Mountain and Poetry Wales magazine with new work due for publication in Earthlines (November 2014). Various pieces have also been broadcast on BBC Radio Wales whilst DRKMTRs The Wild Hunt, also appears on the stunning Dark Mountain vinyl album From the Mourning of the World.

Sophie made some lovely comments about our learners;

‘I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the group this week... You have some really talented students there who were a joy to work with… That’s what makes me love my job!’

This is a great example of learners’  ‘Daring to Achieve.’

This week was also our Sixth Form Open Evening.  There was a good number of learners looking to join us in September 2015 in the Sixth Form.  It was great to see so many learners from Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan wanting to continue their studies with us and learners from other areas looking to join us.

You may also be aware that we had a small fire in school on Thursday.  This was caused by a faulty battery in a soap dispenser.  I can assure you that all appropriate actions have been taken following this incident.

This week we have learners heading off to Italy as part of our work with twelve other European countries.  I will let you know how they are getting on next week.
