. . . BELONG to the school community, the wider community and Wales. The school community is important to us and our curriculum builds the feeling of belonging through the work we achieve. Our school community i sinclusive and we work together and inspire each other to succeed. We also belong to our local communities and we work hard to contribute positively to them.
. . . are INQUISITIVE and we enjoy a challenge. We are keen to ask big questions and look for the answers together. We are active as we learn and we develop a large body of new, exciting skills and knowledge. Being inquisitive allows us to think creatively and solve problems by thinking broadly and creatively about our work.
. . . are WELSH. We are proud to be Welsh and we appreciate our history, language and culture. We are the Welsh of the future and our mission is to conserve, promote and grow the Welsh language by contributing to the wider Welsh community.
. . . are PASSIONATE about our contribution to school life and activities by our desks, on the field or on the stage. We use this passion to drive us ahead to succeed.
. . . ASPIRE and aim high and we understand that we have a wealth of opportunites available to us in school but also after we leave school. We are ambitious and work consistently to realise these aspirations.
. . . are RESILIENT. We face challenges, but we work diligently to overcome them. We develop skills as part of the curriculum to manage our selves and our self confidence to think creatively and solve our problems independently. At times, we fail, but we understand that this is part of the learning journey, and we use our growth mindset to perservere until each one of us succeeds.
. . . are LEADERS. Each one of us has an opportunity to lead. Our learners lead their own learning, by taking ownership over their progress in different fields. There are many opportunities to lead in committees, in extra-curriculuar activities and in calss. Every teacher is a leader in the school – leading the learners in their company to succeed and sharing their expertise with others, with the aim of providing experiences and education of the highest standard.
. . . are TALENTED in different ways. We each have our talents and in Ysgol Gymraeg Ystalyfera Bro Dur, we celebrate the talents of each learner – be they academic, creative, practical or social. Our main aim is to recognise and nurture these talents, by taking part in rich and relevant experiences. By recognising, celebrating and sharing our talents, our community is far richer.
