End of Term

What a fantastic end to a fantastic term.  Hopefully today, if you are a parent of a learner who attends the school, you have received a copy of the school newsletter.  If not there are copies on our website.  This should give you an idea of all the fantastic activities which have been going on in the school.

Today I was able to give out over 50 reading awards to learners in Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9.  These badges show that the learners are taking part in the Accelerated Reading Programme and have shown their commitment to reading.  It was great to be able to give out so many awards.

At the end of the busy term it was good to catch up with all the learners who were heading off to America skiing and also learners who are going off on an educational visit to India.  We all hope they have a great time and that they gain a huge amount from the experiences on offer on both visits.

As you may also be aware we have launched a new rewards system.  This involved learners collecting VIVO points.  CONGRATULATIONS to 7E for winning the form group championship this term. Together 7E have accumulated a massive 19581 Vivo Points. The shield is engraved with 7E.  Dare to Achieve @ Emrys. 

On Monday morning during the Year 7 assembly certificates were awarded to the following learners for the ‘Welsh Speaker of the Month’:

January: Dylan Murray 7M and Teigan Jones 7E

February: Olivia Jones-Humphreys 7R a Joseph Birch 7W

March: Taylor Watson 7M a Megan Sheppard 7R

Olivia Jones-Humphreys 7R was picked as the ‘Welsh Speaker of the Term’, as a reward Olivia can pick any prize worth 100 merits from the ‘Merit Shop’.   

There have been many great achievements this term and many activities planned for next term.

Year Eleven are reminded that there are revision sessions on offer for different subjects each day during the Easter Holidays.  We really do want everyone to do their best and so please come in and make use of the sessions on offer.
