Last Friday, May 12th saw the annual Welsh department trip to Llangrannog, with a record number of 101 students from Years 7, 8 and 9 enjoying a weekend of activities in the beautiful area of Cardigan Bay.
The qualified instructors were impressed with everyone’s eagerness to participate in the skiing, horse-riding, quad biking, go karting, high-ropes assault course, archery, muddy assault course, tobogganing, wall-climbing, trampolining and swimming. It was fantastic to see all students learning and improving skills such as team building, assessing risk, communication and problem-solving, not to mention their Welsh listening skills when their instructors communicated to them in both English and Welsh.
It was especially lovely to hear students thanking the Llangrannog staff in Welsh. This year’s trip was made all the more memorable when all students and staff walked the scenic mountain path and down into the village of Llangrannog to play on the beach. The local ice-cream parlour was particularly impressed by student’s efforts to speak Welsh and made a point of telling staff that they were delighted with everyone’s conduct. A massive Diolch to our staff team: Mr James, Miss Edwards, Mr Johnson, Miss Williams, Mr Collins, Mrs Hill, Mr Morris, Mrs Jones and Mr Davies. The trip couldn’t happen without you! Diolch yn fawr a hwyl am y tro!
