With the May General Election fast approaching, Cwmcarn High School was visited by Chris Evans MP in order to talk to some of the 6th form students about the up and coming election and politics in general. Chris talked through a wide range of topics including how MPs can get young voters more involved in politics, the importance of voting, changes in party politics and anecdotes of life in the House of Commons.
If you are in Year 13 and planning on going to university you should now be making your application for student finance for funding university.
I have downloaded some information that I will be discussing with Year 13 learners at a meeting on Tuesday 10 March in my classroom.
In the meantime please be aware that applications for funding are made independently by the students and their parents/carers and are not made via the school.
World Book Day is the biggest celebration of books and reading in the world!
