The Secretary of State for Wales Stephen Crabb MP visited the school on Wednesday. The pupils had a healthy debate with our visitors, especially Jacob Peterson and Jamie Parsons, on NATO’s role in conflict and moral questions about bringing democracy to countries like Iraq.
|Summer Showcase 2014 & PERFORMING ARTS RE-UNION|
The Summer Showcase is an annual event that is much enjoyed and has become known as an evening to remember with a display of the GCSE Art work, drama pieces and individual and group musical items giving a wonderful mixture of talents that is enjoyed by all. This year was a real treat. We were treated to a musical item of past pupils in addition to our current pupils as we celebrate our 40th Birthday. This was an emotional reunion and added a really special start to our birthday celebrations.
|Year 11 Prom of 2014|
Friday 20th June saw one of the best ever Year 11 Proms. Over 110 pupils attended the event at the Hilton Hotel in Newport. The event was so special and is something they will remember for the rest of their lives.
All those who attended made an extra special effort in their appearance – girls wore dresses of every colour of the rainbow, the boys wore suits and tuxedos – they all looked so smart and proud. After they had arrived in cars such as Jaguars, Porches, Bentley’s, Limousines, they all danced the night away. A Prom King and Queen were awarded – Lewis White and Bianka Czokoly. They both looked amazing on the night and thoroughly deserved these awards – all of the other pupils agreed with this if their spontaneous round of applause was to go by! A special thank you was given to Mrs Perkins for her hard work in organizing the event.
Sophie Noble, 11RS said….. “The Prom definitely met my expectations! If it wasn’t Mr Stroud’s dancing or watching Mr James attempt to do the Macarena, it was the fact that we were all together for the last time, which is what made it so special. I can honestly say prom was the best night of my life and if I could relive it, I’d do it in a heartbeat!”

8th May was an unforgettable experience for 10 of our Sixth Form pupils who were presented to HRH, The Duke of Edinburgh, at St James' Palace. This fabulous occasion was observed by parents and Mr Morgan who was invited along as the Area Representative for D of E Newport.
HRH spent 10 minutes questioning the group about their individual experiences undertaking the Gold Award. This was a magnificent occasion made more special by the venue it was held at. Comments from the pupils noted the ambiance of the Entrée Room with its magnificent oil paintings and gold guilt décor, an experience the pupils will never forget.
The school is very proud of these pupils and their achievements and the skills learnt will stand them in good stead for future employment and for life.
Lliswerry has a reputation envied by many in the City of involving our pupils in the D of E Award programme. The number of pupils completing D of E Awards each year for Bronze, Silver and Gold is a credit to our young people backed up by the dedicated team of D of E staff delivering the programme each week, as an extra- curricular activity.
If any pupils age 14 years of age or above would like to join us, please see any of the staff involved:- Mr Morgan, Mr James, Mr Roynon, Mrs Harris, Mrs Townsend, Miss Price, Mrs Macintosh, Miss Twamley, Mrs Major.
