We will then take you on a guided tour of the school and its facilities. During the tour you will have the opportunity to talk to subject teachers about the work required of pupils in the first year of comprehensive school, see some lessons and demonstrations and to see examples of work completed by our current Year 7 and 8 pupils.

When Cwmrhydyceirw and Clase Primary pupils met Javier the Shirwar Indian

On the morning of Monday 26th March, we were thrilled to welcome some year 6 pupils from two of our local primary schools. They listened intently to Phil Williams of Plan-It Eco, along with Javier, who spoke about the damage we are doing to the rain forests and the importance of protecting them for future generations. They had the opportunity to ask Javier about his own life and upbringing, and they had some really interesting thought-provoking questions to ask. Well done !

Mrs. R. Page.

Anti-Bullying Workshops at Morriston Primary School – 9th February 2017

 

As part of the school’s anti-bullying initiative, Mr Lunt and five of the schools Anti-Bullying Ambassadors (Brody Blake, Samantha Thomas, Maisy Arnold, Evie Tipler and Caitlin Williams) recently visited Morriston primary to deliver anti-bullying workshops to both their Year 5/6 and Year 4/5 classes.

The workshops, which primarily focused on helping pupils to better understand what bullying is; the different forms that it can take; the importance of not being a bystander when it takes place and at ways we can try to reduce or ideally stop bullying, both went extremely well with both sets of pupils seeming to both enjoy and learn from them.

All of the MCS pupils involved were exceptional throughout the day and acted as excellent ambassadors for both the school and anti-bullying throughout, working really well with the primary pupils to expand their knowledge of this important area.

Mr Lunt will now look to return to the school to deliver Restorative Practice training to Morriston’s ‘Playground Buddies’ later in the school year.

Anti-Bullying Workshops at Ynystawe Primary School – 24th January 2017

As part of the school’s anti-bullying initiative Mr Lunt and four of the schools Anti-Bullying Ambassadors (Olivia Hill, Emily Roberts, Gabrielle Robinson and Bethany-Louise Stephens) recently visited Ynystawe primary to deliver anti-bullying workshops to both Year 5 and Year 6 pupils.

The workshops, which primarily focused on helping pupils to better understand what bullying is; the different forms that it can take; the importance of not being a bystander when it takes place and at ways we can try to reduce or ideally stop bullying, both went extremely well with both sets of pupils seeming to both enjoy and learn from them. I was particularly impressed with the standard of answers given by the pupils involved during the course of the day and am sure that a number of them will go on to be involved in the anti-bullying ambassador programme when they move on to Morriston in the future.

As always our pupils were exceptional throughout the day and acted as excellent ambassadors for both the school and anti-bullying throughout really helping to engage the pupils that they were working with in the session.

Mr Lunt will now look to return to the school to deliver Restorative Practice training to Year 6 later in the school year.

Restorative Practice Training Session at Glyncollen Primary School – 20th January 2017

 

On 20th January Mr Lunt and some of the school’s Restorative Practice Pupil Ambassadors (Hannah-May Cardiff, Megan Hill, Kelsey Parsons, Abi Giddings and Tamsin Lewis) visited Glyncollen Primary School to deliver a Restorative Practice training and information sharing session to the ‘Glyncollen Guardians’ – a group of Year 5 and 6 pupils who will now use their newly learnt restorative practice skills to help out the other pupils at the school during break and lunch times by helping to resolve any minor disagreements and problems that they might have, often without the need to involve staff.

The session which involved a lot of role play using the restorative practice questions in order to solve a variety of common problems went extremely well with all of the pupils involved joining in throughout the day, learning valuable new skills and thoroughly enjoying themselves in the process. I was extremely impressed with the problem solving skills shown by the majority of the pupils during the course of the day and look forward to them joining my Restorative Practice Pupil Ambassador team when they move to MCS in September.

I would like to thank my RP Pupil Ambassadors for their support throughout the day, they behaved impeccably throughout and were a credit to the school, acting as excellent role models to the other pupils throughout the day.

Y6 Castaway Transition Project.


Our yr 6 transition pupils took part in a ‘Castaway’ themed literacy and numeracy day.  Pupils were ship wrecked on an isolated island and had to find ways to survive and escape the island.  Pupils were challenged to develop their literacy and numeracy skills to do so.  All of the pupils attending were excellent ambassadors for their primary school’s.  We look forward to seeing them again in the summer term.

The workshops, which primarily focused on helping pupils to better understand what bullying is and the different forms that it can take; the importance of not being a bystander when bullying takes place and finally at ways to try to reduce or stop bullying both went extremely well with both classes seeming to both enjoy and learn from them.

As always our pupils behaved superbly throughout the day, earning praise from staff for being such excellent role models to their current pupils.
