Charity donations

Thank you everyone for your fantastic donations towards the 'Jeans for Genes' appeal. When we have a total for the amount raised we will post it on the blog.

Today we received a thank you letter from Solving Kids Cancer, thanking us for the donations we gave for the Stanley appeal for research into neuroblastoma back in the Summer Term. We raised a fantastic £210.96 which will go towards finding a cure.

Thank you for your continued support.

Senydd trip - School Council and Ecocommittee

Our newly elected members of the School Council and Eco Committee went on a trip to Cardiff Bay today to take part in a project with Y Senydd, 14-18 NOW and the Poppies Weeping Window exhibition.
They learnt all about the history behind the Poppy and its links with World War One and how the Poppy sculpture exhibitions came about. They were then tasked with creating their own films about the sculptures and split into groups. While some wrote a script and had professional tutoring on presenting from the production team, the rest shared out the jobs of sound engineers, camera operators, directors and assistants and put together and operated the equipment to film the presenting part of the team. When the finished film is available to us I will link it to this page so you can see their fantastic finished video.
Meanwhile, below are some photographs of our day. 

Practising setting up and using the equipment.

Outstanding Orchestra

Congratulations to our amazing Orchestra! Not only did they perform brilliantly at the RCT music festival at the Parc and Dare Theatre on Monday, but they won a great trophy as well. 
Mr. Wells from RCT music came to the school to present the Tonysguboriau Orchestra with the Cwpan Coffa Mr. Richards Memorial Cup, awarded for outstanding musicianship. He not only commented on their fantastic playing as a group, but also on their super solos and brilliant behaviour.
We are VERY proud of their achievements. Well done everyone!
A special thank you to Miss. Williams for all her hard work and organisation in getting the orchestra together and playing so well.
