Da iawn to everyone that took part in the MHS Trailathlon 2019 this week- what a fantastic day you all had! Roughly 70 MHS pupils took part in the event, which started at Stackpole Quay, covering beautiful countryside terrain including Barafundle Bay, with a natural woodland obstacle course. All pupils that took part received race medals, event shirts, water supplied by Princes Gate, and over £270 was raised and donated to the Stackpole Estate National Trust site. A huge thanks to Jeff Davies from National Trust Pembrokeshire for making the event possible, and also to Princes Gate Water for providing drinks for all our athletes. There are lots of fantastic photos from the event on our Facebook page, and we are already looking forward to next year.
Shwmae Day 2019- Everyday is a Shwmae day in Ysgol Aberdaugleddau, but we gave that extra push on Hydref 15fed to celebrate ‘Diwrnod Shwmae’. Diolch i Ella, Bethan a Caitlyn for recording the video clip we have shared online, which celebrates the day. Llongyfarchiadau i Elin Gent, Cali-May Thomson, Harvey Pilgrim, Grace Hansen and Rebecca Noremac who each won an oren siocled for their efforts speaking Cymraeg.
There will be a Year 7 Reward Disco the week after Half Term break, details in the posted above.
Tickets will go on sale next week and will be available from Ms G Baker (office in the library), but please be aware that this is a reward for Year 7 pupils who have positively engaged in school and we reserve the right to refuse entry.
We are proud to say that we have a defibrillator at Milford Haven School that will shortly be set up and available to the benefit of over 1000 pupils, staff here at MHS and the wider community that access our school site and facilities. The defibrillator equipment was donated to us as part of Welsh Government’s “Save a life Cymru” initiative.
If someone suffers a heart attack, using a defibrillator on them in the first three minutes gives them a 74% chance of survival, without a defibrillator or medical assistance in the first three minutes your chances of survival are as low as 6%. With every minute that passes for an individual suffering a cardiac arrest, their chances of survival are reduced by 7-10%. The numbers speak for themselves. Due to the reduction in health care services, and the isolated nature of our location, we feel that it is our duty to do anything that we can do to increase vital lifesaving resources available in our town. Every day in the UK 420 people lose their lives to cardio vascular disease, including heart attacks- that’s one death every 3 minutes. There are around 7 million people in the UK suffering from cardio vascular disease, which means that a defibrillator based at MHS would be an incredible asset to the people of Milford Haven Town.
Go Grease Lightning! Da iawn to the 50 Drama Club members who travelled to Cardiff yesterday to see the West End Production of ‘Grease’. I am overwhelmed with pride after being told that several members of the public went out of their way to comment to staff how impressed they were with the behaviour and conduct of our pupils. I am glad that you all got the opportunity to see the show, we now all look forward to our own school production in the new year and hope the whole community will support the show and our young people.
This week we hosted the first leg of the Pembrokeshire schools cross-country championship. We had over 30 boys and girls from MHS competing from years 7 to 11, with each pupil performing extremely well.We had some excellent results which are as follows:
Year 7 boys – Rowan Dixon 1st
Year 7 Girls – Rebecca Noremac 11th
Year 8/9 Boys – Kian Smith 5th
– Evan Rutherford 8th
A huge da iawn to all that took part, we are very proud of you all.
Our girls played Ysgol Caer Elen this week, this was the first netball match they have played. They scored a total of 7 goals across different quarters- mixing all the teams up.
The future looks bright for these girls, da iawn pawb!

Two year 7 boys teams travelled to Ysgol Caer Elen this week, playing against a mixture of their year 7s and year 8s. The blue team came from 5-2 down to win 6-5, an excellent team effort and they fought to the end to seal the win. The yellow team came away with a 11-0 win, an excellent team effort from all the boys. The attitude and behaviour of all was outstanding throughout and the whole squad deserved to be boys of the match.
A great night of football in preparation for next weeks’ cup game v Maesy Gwendraeth on Wednesday (away)….it will be tough to pick a squad after these amazing performances!
Would you be interested in a free First Aid Training session if we hosted one here at Milford Haven School? We are potentially able to provide a free first aid training workshop here at Milford Haven School which would be open to the whole community, but we need to gauge rough numbers to see if this would be viable. We have put a poll up on our Facebook page so please let us know your thoughts.
