‘Last year we made a link with the local bowling club. Our aim was not only to improve the wellbeing and health of our pupils but to make intergenerational links with members of the local community. It was an incredible success and they even held a junior event. Numerous pupils have become full time members and we hope to maintain the links and events next year’
To improve the health and wellbeing of our pupils, all year 4 children were offered free instrument lessons. We believe that such a focus improves self discipline and gives them a chance to try something they may never do again. We may even find a star of the future!
On a sunny day last June over 30 of our pupils visited Moorfield School in Widnes to have our equivalent of ‘iron challenge’. We held a football and a netball tournament for a variety of age ranges. (7-11 years old). After an excellent lunch provided by the school, we then had a fun afternoon of sports activities like sack races and three legged races! Thank you Moorfield School for an excellent day!
On March 1st, St David’s Day, the special day to remember the patron saint of Wales, Moorfield School joined us at Ysgol Glanwydden to have a cultural day. Our pupils sang, recited, played instruments and danced for them as part of our yearly festival activities and competition. We were very pleased that Moorfield School also performed their brass band! What an excellent day!
Last November, our pupils were given the challenge of raising money to support children and families who are not as lucky as they are. Many pupils organised their own stalls selling cakes, biscuits, toys, books etc. They raised over £800 which is an excellent results. They were not allowed to ask any staff member for help. Well done kids!
Last year we also made a link with the local ‘Little Orme Lions’. They are a local group of volunteers who help preserve the local seaside and raise awareness amongst the children about the importance of protecting our environment. They donated a cheque of £100 to help us develop our garden-all part of our initiative to improve health and wellbeing and the understanding of where food comes from and how it can be used.
Here are all the members of the Comenius project who visited Wales on October 9th! Thank you for all the fun!
