Dealing with stress in the run up to Results Day

Dealing with stress in the run up to Results Day We spoke to Dr Rachel Dodge, Qualifications Development Manager (and PhD in Psychology โ€“ focused on student wellbeing), who told us what's happening to our bodies and minds when we're feeling stressed, as well as ways to combat these effects.

Today marked the end for Mr Wood's five year journey with his form. It's been great to have shared the last 5 years with most of you and seen you grow and develop. We'll look forward to seeing you again on results day, the 12th August.

Dear Parent / Carer

I am writing to you at the start of another half term in school. I hope that you and your families are well.

As you will be aware we are continuing to deliver on line learning through Show My Homework. Teaching staff will continue to set work via the App and learners can complete the work as it appears on the timetable which is available on the school website. This should help learners to maintain some structure to the day. We are currently reviewing this provision as we reach the end of another three weekly cycle of the timetable. I will therefore be in touch at the end of the week in a fuller letter to communicate any changes that we think are necessary.

Many of you will be aware that the Education Minister for Wales, Kirsty Williams, is due to make an announcement on schools this week. As soon as we have this information we will be able to plan more clearly for the coming weeks. Due to this announcement I will write to you on Friday and update you on anything we intend to do as a result of any announcement.

As always, we are here if you need us and we can be contacted via the schools email address [email protected].

Yours sincerely

L. Cummins

Class of 2020 - Year 11 (May 2020)

In these strange times it sad that Year 11 learners have not been able to end this part of their school life like all those who came before them. But things will eventually get back to normal, and we will all be able to say our real goodbyes. Until then, stay safe and look out for each other.

Gwrych Castle

Today we commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Let us all honour those who we have loved and lost in the Second World War.

Let us all find inspiration in their bravery to guide us through our own extraordinary moment in history. The photograph here shows some of 250 Jewish children that sought sanctuary at Gwrych Castle during the N**i occupation of Europe. Many never saw their families again. #gwrychcastle #abergele #conwy #veday75 #veday #jewishhistory

North Wales Police

When Special Constable Matt Roberts realised there was a shortage of protective visors he donned his other hat and together with his colleagues at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan they set to work.

Initially the team at the Abergele secondary school made 100 face masks, but it soon became apparent there was a need for far more to protect critical workers from Coronavirus.

โ€œIt started with 100 now we are getting orders galore, and we have already supplied over 1500 across North Wales,โ€ said Matt, who has taught Design Craft and Technology at the school since 2014.

โ€œWe started using school materials, but as the demand has increased we are now relying on donations from the public to buy the materials required,โ€ he said, pointing out that they have a rota system and a production line, with teachers from various departments coming in to help.
When not in school Matt, who originates from Llanrwst, volunteers a great deal of his spare time to being a Special Constable in Bangor.

โ€œItโ€™s all about team work,โ€ said Matt, who will be leaving the school shortly to become a full time police officer.

For anyone requiring masks, Matt and the team can be contacted via [email protected]

Today Year 8 were given a fantastic presentation on the First World War. They were able to hold artefacts and dress in uniforms to understand the experiences of those who fought in the trenches. They also recorded the names of some of Abergele's fallen on memorial stones which are to be used at a commemoration of Royal Welch Fusiliers Museum at Caernarfon Castle.
