The choir also takes part in the schools harvest festival and Christmas concerts. We compete annually in the Urdd National Eisteddfod as a choir and small groups.

Healthy Schools 

Llanilar School has been a member of the Ceredigion Healthy School Scheme since 2004. Our aim is to reinforce what is taught in the classroom in the daily life of the school. We received the National Quality Award for Healthy Schools in December 2013 and March 2016. We were the second school in Ceredigion to receive this award. Here are some examples of the scheme at work in school - 

  • we supply water bottles for each child and encourages the children to drink the water during the day.
  • we promote healthy eating by making healthy choices dinner time and bringing fruit to eat at playtime.
  • we sell fruit in the shop at playtime
  •  we recognise the link between a healthy diet and health in general which includes diet and exercise.
  • we organise visits with the dentist, the school nurse and the hospital in order to reinforce the work on health that is taught in the classroom.

We hope to foster positive attitudes, skills and behaviours for the future in our pupils as we continue to be a part of The Healthy Schools Scheme.

 

 

Heartstart 

HeartStart is a 'British Heart Foundation' initiative to teach children what to do in life threatening emergencies. It is a four-week course for pupils in years 5 and 6. They learn a range of life support skills including dealing with conscious and unconscious patients, a heart attack, choking and heavy bleeding. Pupils practise their skills on a ‘Little Anne’ - a manikin which gives the pupils the opportunity to practise life support skills safely. Successful pupils receive a certificate at the end of the course.

 

The course has been run at the school by staff who have received the appropriate training. In addition two members of staff share this good practice at another school by holding a one day course for the pupils.
