Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog.
Many of you have already contacted the school sharing your thoughts about last week’s Christmas Show. If you were lucky enough to be in attendance on the night I’m sure that you’ll agree that it was an absolutely fantastic experience and an amazing showcase for the array of talent that we have here in Y Pant. It was certainly one of the proudest nights of my time in the school and one which I will look back on with real fondness for years to come. Many thanks and congratulations to all the young people (over 100!) who performed and helped out. Many thanks also to my colleagues in the Performing Arts Department who worked tirelessly in providing the youngsters with the opportunity to perform. Roll on next year!
I am looking forward, as always at this time of year, to our Inter-Generational Christmas Party. This is an important date in our calendar, one in which staff and students of the school welcome senior citizens from the local community to an afternoon of music, fun and refreshments in the spirit of the season.
For Year 11, mock exams start later on this week. It is critical that pupils prepare well for these exams as doing so will give their teachers an accurate assessment of what support they need in the coming months to ensure the best possible grades in all of their subjects. It is also true that hard work now will lead to fewer stresses in the summer months. Best of luck to everyone.
Congratulations also to Shannon Jarvis and Kasey Daley in Year 7. These two pupils have accumulated so many house points this term that they have won a pair of tickets each to see Cardiff City v Southampton on Boxing Day. Well done girls, enjoy your day out and many thanks to Phil Harmer of Al-Met Ltd for donating the prize. I promise not to make any predictions about the result!
