Work Placement at ExxonMobil

October 11, 2013 in Front Page News by Lliswerry High School

Over the summer holidays Sam Bowditch and I went on a work placement at ExxonMobil in Newport to create a magazine for the company.  We got our placements after being interviewed and having to sit a test for the company.  The job was over 2 weeks and we created the magazine, which they give to all their employees.  It was fun but stressful as we were on a strict time limit and deadlines and we had a lot of work to do, which  included collecting photos for each article, interviewing employees and meeting a publishing company.

We both really enjoyed the whole process and understand more now what goes into making a magazine.  You can read the magazine here on line.

France 2013

August 12, 2013 in Front Page News by Lliswerry High School

During July nearly 50 pupils went on a 4 day visit to France. Some of the places they visited included a visit to Arras; the Wellington Quarry Memorial Museum and Mametz Wood to see the Red Dragon Memorial to the men of the 38th Welsh Division that fell there. A visit to the top of the Eiffel Tower was a highlight for some of those pupils not scared of heights! A whole day was spent at Euro Disney which all the pupils enjoyed – despite the very hot weather! On the way back to school the pupils visited the front-line town of Ypres, which they found to be very moving. All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would go again next year.
