Mr Hoskins

Homework club

Homework Club only runs from 3.00-3.30 tomorrow, Tuesday 23rd October.  Running as normal today!


School Choir

This week choir rehearsals will be for the choir performing in Awards Evening (not Grease rehearsals).  

KS4 - Tuesday Lunchtime

KS3 - Wednesday Lunchtime (due to ARD day)

We are going to perform 'Sing' by Gary Barlow & the Commonwealth Band so I need lots of pupils to take part. Awards evening is on Thursday 8th November and pupils will receive an EMA for taking part.  

I have included a link to a karaoke version of the song. It will sound amazing if lots of pupils take part :)

Year 11 Prom

Miss Allman is going to be working with a group of year 11 students to organise the Prom this year. To ensure that everyones opinion are heard she would like 3 people from Pryderi to attend regular meetings to help plan and organise this event.

If you are interested let your form tutor know. If there are more than three people interested then we will hold an election next week.
