A variety of activities are undertaken by the children throughout the school year. Children are expected to take part and to represent the school with pride. Many activities are in association with the ‘Welsh League of Youth’ (Urdd) and, therefore, most children in the Junior class are enrolled in the movement.
Seasonal concerts are performed by the children e.g. For Senior Citizens, at Christmas and Thanksgiving.
Llangrannog Urdd Camp
Key Stage 2 pupils are given an opportunity to attend the camp on a residential basis to participate in a wide range of adventurous and outdoor activities through the Welsh language.
There is a charge for the course and parents are given the opportunity to pay weekly towards the cost which covers staying at the camp, 4 meals a day, transport and instruction in the activities – ski-ing, swimming, riding etc.. This course, as well as being educational, has proved to be an opportunity for the children to exchange experiences, learn to live independently, foster citizenship and care for others.
On an annual basis, The Carmarthenshire Road Safety Association in partnership with the school gives year 6 pupils instruction in ‘Safety on the Bicycle’ as well as arranging a quiz on Road Safety.
