A huge and heartfelt thank you to all staff, pupils and families within our MHS school community. Your continued efforts and support have generated a positive start for our young people to this new academic year, and we very much look forward to the opportunities this fresh term brings. 

Post 16 Guidance Week
We were delighted to welcome guests from Pembrokeshire College this week, which marks our first post-16 guidance week for year 11.
This special event allows learners the chance to meet college staff and ask specific questions linked to college faculties, also providing the opportunity to engage in a 1 to 1 guidance meeting with the admissions team. We are really looking forward to welcoming additional providers in to speak to learners as the year progresses.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this special transition event, and da iawn pawb to all those pupils who have already engaged so positively in this process.
Former MHS pupil achievement.
A huge da iawn to this incredibly talented and hard working former MHS pupil!
Tom’s recent graduation was on completion of his Basic Recruit Training Course which was 10-weeks long. He is now off to the Defence School of Aeronautical Engineering at RAF Cosford to complete his 16-month trade training to become an Aircraft Technician. Following his graduation, he’s also been asked to play for the RAF Water Polo team which he’s hoping to start in November.
We wish you all the best Tom, and our whole school family continues to be proud of your many achievements and ongoing pursuit of your dreams. Da iawn.

Da iawn pawb.

Today was the return of our annual MHS Trailathlon- and what a fantastic day it was!

A huge thank you to Jeff and Sam from the National Trust who have created a spectacular natural obstacle course on the Stackpole Estate, they both supported us to really make the most of the beautiful area we explored today. Thanks also to Dayle Gibby and Ro from Milford Youth Matters who volunteered to assist with the trip today and helped all our young people engage in this unique event. George, Harry, Ollie and Owen (current Year 10 pupils) were an absolute asset throughout the day, we really could not have asked for more positive role models for our Year 7 pupils to look up to.

Da iawn again blwydden saith, we hope you all had as much fun as we did. We are already excited to go back and do it all again next year! Diolch

COVID19 guidance update from Welsh Government
Jeremy Miles MS, Minister for Education and Welsh Language has this week said, “I am amending our advice and guidance to learners in secondary schools and colleges who are under 18 and have a household member who has tested positive for COVID-19.
It will be recommended that in addition to PCR tests on Day 2 and Day 8 they should undertake daily lateral flow every day for seven days. This should start on the day a household contact is confirmed positive from a lateral flow or PCR test result.
Where appropriate we want to reduce the testing of children without symptoms but due to the increase in prevalence and the concerns expressed about household contacts it is vital that we do all we can to keep children in school.”
Full details of the most up to date guidance from Welsh Government can be found via the link below. Diolch

Chromebooks for All
Thank you to all parents/carers of pupils in years 9, 10 and 11 that have registered for the Chromebooks For All scheme. It is great to see so many pupils collecting their Chromebooks and already actively using them in class and at home to aid their studies.
A reminder to those who have still not taken advantage of this scheme to register a Chromebook for their child(ren) as soon as possible so we can get the equipment out to our young people to be utilised both in school and at home to support learning. To register – please check your email for a message from Pay360 with instructions. If you cannot find this email in your inbox, it may have slipped into your junk/spam folder. If you have any issues you should contact chromebookhelp@milfordhavenschool.co.uk for support.
The roll out for years 7 and 8 will begin during our next phase of distribution. We will be in contact with parents/carers of pupils in these year groups when this begins.
