Awards in the Senedd

On Thursday afternoon, 22 June, a group of year 8 pupils went to the Senedd in Cardiff Bay for the Rotary’s award ceremony. Four year 8 pupils were invited to the ceremony because of the high standard of their work: Ffion Tomos, Anwen Morgan, Ben Lervy and Jack Thomas. They wrote impressive and creative pieces on the theme of “World Peace” by discussing themes and topics such as accidental blame, appreciating what we have, protecting the environment, kindness and humanity. The four were called to the stage to receive certificates from Rhiannon Passmore AM. After that it was announced that Jack had come second in the competition and he returned to the stage to receive his certificate and prize. High praise was given to everyone’s work by the judges. Congratulations everyone, especially Jack!

Year 10’s Trip to See Shirley

Year 8’s Trip to Cardiff Bay

This term, “Wales” is the theme of year 8’s Welsh lessons. So, once again this year, 50 pupils went on a trip to Cardiff Bay on Friday, 16 June.

Hay Fever

On Friday, May 26th a group of culture-hungry year 9 students visited the Hay Festival of Literature and Arts in Powys.  Highlights included an audience with acclaimed teen-fiction writer Ali Sparkes and listening to the entertaining tales of writers Daniel Morden and Phil Earle. Students also enjoyed the chance to question these authors on their craft and revelled in the opportunity to sample some delicious festival food. An enjoyable day for all involved! Many thanks to Mrs Victoria Jones for coordinating the visit and Mr Ray Thomas for accompanying the excursion.
