London Trip

PDFPrintE-mail

A huge thank you to everyone who was a part of the trip to London at the end of the Summer term.  The pupils have enjoyed the host of activities on offer immensely.  The show 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' was of an exceptional standard and that helped everyone to forget the lack of an evening meal before their arrival.  How wonderful it was to finally see the McDonalds menu even though it was 11pm!  Once again the world of Thorpe Park was fantastic and the warm weather really encouraged the enjoyment of water rides and splash activities.  Traffic in and around London was an absolute nightmare but all attendees showed willing to make last minute changes to the itinerary as necessary; another thank you for you cooperation and patience.  London 2016 here we come!Llundain gorff '15-23

INNOCENT AS STRAWBERRIES IN ABERYSTWYTH

PDFPrintE-mail

 

‘Innocent as Strawberries’ is the famous and slightly odd simile from Dylan Thomas’ poem ‘The Hunchback in the Park’ and this was the title of the play that Year Nine Pupils from Dyffryn Teifi went to see at The National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth. They were also treated to a behind the scenes tour of the Library, even venturing down to the vaults.

The visit was completely funded by Theatr Arad Goch and The National Library of Wales. The pupils were mesmerised by the fast paced play that traced the lives of three teenage boys growing up in South Wales. It was a performance that traced the loss of innocence; it was not all serious, there were laughs aplenty too.

The tour of the Library was a complete eye-opener; the vast collections of books, magazines, newspapers, paintings, photographs and manuscripts were shown to the pupils. As you can imagine, some were kept under lock and key – the most valuable being an original Chaucer manuscript.

A great day out, enjoyed by pupils and staff.
