Many congratulations to a group of Year 7-9 pupils who came second in the Junior Joint Project competition at the Urdd Eisteddfod this year. The title was “Graffiti” and the group had fun creating a project based on all sorts of famous graffiti and having a go at creating some of their own graffiti at the school – all in good taste of course! Congratulations also go to a group of Year 10-13 pupils who came first in the Joint Project under 25 years old competition (for the third time running!). The challenge was to create a magazine about a specific organisation and the group decided to focus on “Fair Trade”. Here are pictures of some of the pupils who took part in the joint projects – well done to everyone who contributed!

Congratulations to Sarah (from year 12) for winning the first prize at the inaugural DylanEd awards. The competition focused on asking students to review one of the shortlisted texts for the International Dylan Thomas Prize. As part of the prize-giving ceremony, Sarah was presented with a copy of all shortlisted texts and her prize was handed to her by Claire Louise Bennett, author of ‘Pond’ (the novel reviewed by Sarah for the competition). Our sixth form students also grasped the opportunity to chat with Hannah Ellis (granddaughter of Dylan Thomas. The prize also included tickets for Sarah to attend the ceremony of the international Dylan Thomas prize, which was won by Max Porter for his novel, ‘Grief is the Thing with Feathers’’ Once again the English department can take great pride in the achievement of our sixth form students!
