Señora Fernandez, Señor Pelaez and Señorita O’Keefe accompanied 29 Y Pant pupils to Malaga. They left in the extreme early hours of Saturday morning and arrived in sunny Spain just in time for lunch. After exploring Malaga town centre, the group headed for the beach (for a well needed siesta) and some pollo/pescado. During the trip the group also visited Frigiliana, Nerja, Mijas and Puerto Banús. Delicious Spanish food was consumed (paella, chorizo, churros y chocolate, helado…) and Malaga street talk was learnt (¡Osú mi madre, qué calor!) After 4 action packed days the group returned home to (a not so sunny) Pontyclun all tired out, thank goodness the summer holidays are only around the corner!
The school equipment packs ordered by year 6 parents are now available to collect from the school uniform shop. Apologies for the delay – our suppliers ran out of stock!
USB sticks and packs for year 7 and upwards will be available at the beginning of the school year.
You cannot purchase school equipment packs at the uniform shop, only from Mr Davies using the order form provided. The school uniform shop volunteers have very kindly agreed to hand out these packs for us.
We held our annual Eisteddfod for years 7 and 8 pupils on July 2nd. Nearly 400 pupils watched or took part in a range of staged activities. In addition to the usual Welsh cultural items such as recitation and folk music we saw some superbly talented pupils singing pop and rock songs, not to mention really entertaining oh la la versions of ‘Alouette’ in word perfect French! We were entertained by talented instrumentalists and saw a variety of individual and group dance items for the first time for some years too. Several members of staff commented on the lovely atmosphere of friendly competition they witnessed and everyone was stunned by how rousing was the closing of the Eisteddfod with the National Anthem sung by all pupils.
In the preceding weeks there had been hundreds of homework competitions ranging from amazing art and craft works being produced to outstanding written entries in several languages. The winner of the Chair this year for the most effective Welsh composition in Year Eight went to Emilia Bolton of Tirion and she was delighted to accept the prize of the Love Spoon from Mr. Powell following the chairing ceremony.
The final result, the closest for some years saw Tirion narrowly beating this year`s and last year`s runners up Nerth by only 22 points.
We have to thank Mrs. Sarah Burnell and Mr. Owen Thomas, who are both staff representatives on the School Governing body, for adjudicating on the day.
It was Activities Day in school this week! Many pupils went out on trips but lots were in school trying out some exciting new things.
The Science department are ran a fire workshop and set fire to Mr Browne’s hands with bubbles of methane. PLEASE DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME – THIS WAS A VERY CLOSELY SUPERVISED EXPERIMENT
(No Physics teachers were harmed in the course of this experiment).
