This document includes broad details of the forthcoming residential visits arranged by the school for the academic 2020-22 years. We aim to offer a variety of educational experiences based on a series of principles agreed by the Governors i.e. equal opportunities, educational value and an awareness of environmental issues. I am grateful to the school staff that are prepared to lead residential trips at a time when nationally educational visits are becoming more and more un-common.
We're raising money to buy a sound-mixing desk and microphones for the school's concerts, drama productions, eisteddfods, school meetings and more! Owning this equipment would save us the £2,500 plus that it now costs us every time we need to hire a sound desk - as well as the cost of hiring sound desk technicians. We will use the desk to teach pupils sound-mixing skills (for instance, as part of our music and drama courses). It will be great to see them mixing the sound for our school events! So let's aim to have our own sound desk in place for next spring's production of Billy Elliot! Our kids will sound great on stage! The entire school community will benefit from this investment - and it will help us raise money for Plasmawr by having the equipment we need to attract more people to hire our hall for their events.
