A Level Welsh – Residential Trip to Glan-llyn

On Wednesday 15th November, our three Upper Sixth students, Rachel E, Morgan G and Fflur P, along with Miss McManus made the four hour journey to North Wales, ready for an intensive 3 days of lectures and revision seminars at the Urdd Centre in Glan-Llyn, near Bala. Despite the early start of 6:45am, the girls were ready for an afternoon of seminars where they had the privilege of listening to the playwright of the drama studied at A Level, and asking her many questions already discussed in lessons. That evening, they were very lucky to have an intimate, acoustic performance from Welsh language band, ‘Candelas’, around the campfire.
The following day was even busier, spent at Bangor University, where the students were very impressed when they were able to meet the authors of the short stories they are studying, along with many other distinguished Welsh lecturers. We finished the day by crossing the bridge over to Anglesey, with an exclusive tour of the television set for Welsh language soap opera ‘Rownd a Rownd’.
Finally, on Friday, the girls really got to practise all they had learnt with a workshop in preparation for their oral exams. Miss McManus couldn’t have been more proud of the girls throughout the trip, for both their academic successes and for being so well mannered, representing St John’s perfectly! Ansbaradigaethus!
