The Crew that study Welsh in the Sixth Form

Congratulations to Laura Hughes in Year 13 for winning third prize in this year’s Dafydd Rowlands Memorial Award. The judge, T.James Jones praised her work immensely. Well done to Catrin Hedges who was also shortlisted for the prize.

Congratulations to Sara Dafydd from Year 13 for coming second in the Young People’s Trophy competition for under 25s this year at the Hendy Eisteddfod where there were 35 competitors. Well done also to Rhydian Cleaver from Year 12 for being shortlisted.

It was a pleasure to hear of the success of two pupils from Year 13 winning scholarships to continue to study Welsh at university next year. Sara Dafydd won a creative scholarship at Cardiff University’s Welsh Language Department, and Laura Hughes won a scholarship with Swansea University’s Welsh Language Department. We wish them all the best next year!

 

 

Morgan Parry Foundation Prize

It was a pleasure to welcome Jane Davidson who recently visited us to present the Morgan Parry Foundation prize to a crew from Year 8. The task set by the Organisation this year was to create a short film about the subject “The Wales We Want”. Ffion Tomos, Anwen Morgan, Jack Thomas and Toby Porter created a film that showed their hopes and dreams for Wales in the future – by talking about a generation that protects the environment, lives a healthy life, lends a hand to help others, continues to protect our culture and our nation, and achieves the aim of a million Welsh speakers by 2050. Year 8 came together to enjoy watching the video and to congratulate the four. Congratulations to them for creating a film that is so creative and comprehensive.

Congratulations to Siôn Thomas, Year 7, who won first prize in the writing prose competition for year 7!

Congratulations to a group of junior pupils at the school for coming second in the competition to create a Joint Project for Years 7-9 in this year’s Urdd Eisteddfod. The theme was “Legends”, and a booklet and DVD about this theme were created.

The older pupils were just as successful with their Joint Project and they won first prize in a competition for under 25 year olds. Creating a website based on the theme “Vale” was the task set for the older pupils.

A review of school meals in Swansea

The Local Authority are inviting parents and carers of our pupils to have their say on school meals as part of a review the Council is undertaking looking at all its catering services. By taking part you can help make sure the views of parents and carers are considered when identifying the way forward for catering provision in schools.

 

No decisions have been made at this stage. Information gathered in this survey will influence the options put forward for the future.  The Council is also gathering views through other activities, and comparisons done with other parts of the public and private sector.

 

The survey is available at http://www.swansea.gov.uk/schoolcateringhaveyoursay
