Treorchy Comprehensive School

June 14th was ‘bring your dad to school day’ and to mark this event, Treorchy Comprehensive School invited the boys in Year 7 and 8 to bring their fathers to school for a ‘Dads and Lads Chip Shop Supper’.

Over 50 dads and lads turned up at the school between 5.30 and 6.30, as well as some of the male members of staff. Along with the sausage and chips there was a range of newspapers available for everyone to read and an opportunity for the boys to discuss with their fathers some of the articles they had both read. As you can guess, the majority of the articles were from the sports pages!
The aim of the evening was to encourage boys to read and improve their literacy skills. Due to the success of the evening, the school intends to run many more similar events in the future.
