I know that by now you are all familiar with the lockdown arrangements which will start at 6pm on Friday night this week and end on November 9th. This is only a short lockdown period so there is no cause for any pupil to worry.
In seeking to protect education as much as possible the following decisions were made for the week of November 2;
· Secondary schools will be open to children in years 7 and 8, while other pupils will continue to learn from home for that week. This will include teachers delivering online lessons from the classroom.
· Those re-sitting GCSE and University entrance examinations in November will be able to do so at school.
· Free school meal arrangements are already in place for half term and will continue for pupils in year 9 and above for the second week.
· School transport and the catering service will continue as normal for year 7 and 8 pupils
It is essential for you as parents to ensure that your children attend all lessons in accordance with the current timetable. This week is not an extra holiday but a normal school timetable. Teachers will record who has attended the lessons in their attendance mark books.
During the week of November 2;
· The school will be open as normal for years 7 and 8
· The school's current Week 1 timetable will continue as normal for everyone, both at school and at home
· The office will be open as usual for any calls.
A very warm welcome to the Bro Myrddin Welsh Comprehensive School website. Bro Myrddin is a secondary school teaching the vast majority of subjects in Welsh. Pupils come to us from the ancient town of Carmarthen and the rural areas of the
western and northern side of the beautiful County.
We are proud of the consistently high school academic standards, and a wide range of extra-curricular activities are also very important for us, with pupils experiencing success in various fields.
The contribution to Welsh culture through a host of activities including the
Welshness Project4Cymraeg Committee, and the Urdd and National Eisteddfod is of key importance, as are our contribution to the local community through charity work, volunteer work and various other links. Browse through our website for more information and to get a taste of the hustle and bustle of the school.
