Head’s Blog 24th May 2019

This week we held our first literary festival which culminates today with the whole of our year 7 cohort experiencing the delights of the Hay Festival.

This week, our pupils will have experienced:

“Meet a Sport Journalist” with Callum Ellis

“Meet a Journalist” with Gareth Lewis, Rebecca John and Kate Scott-Williams

“Meet a Play Wright” with Jon Berry

This really has been a special week and is something which I know pupils will always remember. Grateful thanks must be extended to the wonderful staff team at Brynteg who somehow, always seem to find the energy to provide such a superb range of opportunities and in-particular to Mr Jones and Mrs Fender who have led this new initiative wonderfully.

Our pupils who are sitting examinations really have impressed us in the way which they have applied themselves.  The exam season seems to creep earlier every year and this adds to the pressure that our pupils are placed under as they lose the essential revision time which they traditionally had in the run-up to Whitsun.  As a school, we are making representations to the WJEC and to the Children’s Commissioner about this and would welcome your support should you feel able to do so.

Please remember that Monday 3rdJune is a training day and pupils return to school on Tuesday 4thJune.

Our photo of the week shows some of our pupils in our pop-up ‘reading café’ which we introduced as part of Literary Week.

Best wishes
