Junior Programme Summer 2017

Posted by April Pugh on 17-Aug-2017 13:12:00

It's been an extremely lively summer with our Junior groups at Celtic English Academy. We had students from Spain, Italy, Vietnam, Russia and Turkey all studying with us. It was fantastic having all the different nationalities together; sharing their culture and improving their English skills.


The teenagers studied a diverse range of topics and produced some excellent project work. Highlights included: "The Dirty Sock Museum", an infographic on the history of coal mining in Wales, an invention which made your dreams come true (The Magic Hat) not to mention a play which the students wrote and performed themselves!

Week Two at the Celtic Junior Summer Programme in Cardiff

Posted by Celtic Team on 31-Jul-2015 17:45:00

This week the students have taken part in many exciting activities with the activity and welfare leaders, as well as having lots of fun in their lessons with their teachers, Alex and Sharon.

On Sunday, all of the juniors went to the Cardiff Bay Beach festival, where they bought fun fair treats like chips and candy floss, and went on some of the amusements.

On Monday, the students were taken on a guided tour of the Millennium Stadium, and learnt all about the history of the Welsh national sport.

Wednesday was a very exciting day for all of the students, as they headed down to the Welsh Water Rafting Centre, and had a go for themselves! They were all kitted up from head to toe, with wetsuits and helmets. This was definitely a group favorite, as all of the students came out laughing and smiling (and soaking wet!)

On Thursday, some of the leaders and all of the students took a trip into Cardiff city centre to do some shopping. The students treated themselves, and some bought souvenirs for their family members and friends.
