Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School

Dear Parents and Students

Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School

In our school we encourage everyone to have the highest expectations of themselves and each other as together we Learn to Lead our Lives.

We are proud of our students’ academic achievements.  Just as importantly, we are a school that cares.  We believe that students need to feel comfortable and secure in order to learn and, as a school, we put as much emphasis on creating a supportive and happy environment as we do on academic success.  We achieve both.

I look forward to working with you to ensure the very best learning and life for the young people in our care.

8th MAY - A BANK HOLIDAY AND A NATION'S COMMEMORATION OF VE DAY

8/5/2020

The 8th May is a national holiday to commemorate the end of the Second World War in Europe. The day is an official holiday. A day to remind us of our courage and that the will for good always wins out against tyranny and aggression; where the collective power of the human spirit, when as one, can defeat any adversity. (At this moment in time this commemoration could not be more poignant).  Friday will be a ‘school holiday at home’.  To mark the day, along with the national commemoration, the MFL team at school has put together a short resource of how to say ‘Thank you’ in many languages.  The History Department has also produced a short resource to help you plan your individual parties, perhaps you will attempt the Lindy Hop?

At home, would you join with us in saying ‘Thank you’ in many languages to remind us of the courage of the people that gave their lives then, as we give thanks now, for the people that have given their all to help us today. It may be as a family you would like to make paper bunting with all the words of ‘thank you’ (perhaps with that nation’s flag) and place in the window with the rainbows and thanks for all Key Workers. It is an ‘MCS Thank You’ from us to all the people and nations across the World at this time of adversity.  (If you would wish to Tweet a picture of your bunting and your parties, that would be brilliant!).

CATCHING UP WITH THE COMMS TEAM

20/3/2020

So, from student to student, first of all, over this period - stay safe.  Remember we are all in this together as a school community and we will get through it together – with social distancing, of course!

The school will be updating the website on a regular basis and tweeting – please keep checking MILK for homework.

This isn’t goodbye from the Comms Committee but a ‘see you again’.


COMMUNITY EVENT - WELLBEING

17/3/2020

POSTPONED - NEW DATE TO BE DETERMINED

Monmouth Comprehensive School is holding a community event on Thursday 26th March 5:00pm-7:00pm, with the aim of raising awareness of the support available within Monmouthshire around wellbeing, mental health and suicide prevention.

The aim is to take the stigma out of mental health and wellbeing with the hope that the event will open up opportunities for people to explore their mental health and wellbeing, resulting in positive changes. A wide range of organisations and services will be available on the night for you to gain information and support from areas as you see fit. Although held directly within the school, it is a community event where everyone is welcome. Mental health, wellbeing, and suicide support is something that is embedded within the school’s values and ethos in which we aim to offer support to both students and families. With such tragic events over past years involving ex-students taking their own lives, we, as a school, feel that the drive of promoting mental health, wellbeing and suicide support may be welcomed within the local community.

For more information and a list of some of the organisations attending the event, please click on the link below or, alternatively, scan the QR code with your phone camera on the poster.

We hope to see as many of you as possible at the event.
