What a week! The sun shone (a bit) on Tuesday which meant that Sports Day could run unhindered from beginning to end. There were many outstanding performances by young athletes from all houses and in all competitions with Gawanaf emerging as worthy winners. Well done to everybody involved!
Still on the theme of sport I’d like to wish Rebecca Evans the best of luck in the Schools International Athletics Championship this weekend. I look forward to hearing how she got on.
Then to the Muni on Tuesday evening for the annual Envirovision Song Quest. Y Pant’s victory last year was a proud moment for the school indeed. Dare we dream a second successive victory? Competition was tough and Tonypandy in particular performed an outstanding piece of music which showcased some exceptional talents. Y Pant performed last and, clad in bin liners playing only on acoustic instruments, they took to the stage…a few bars into the song and all doubt was blown away. What a song! What a performance! Well done to all the pupils involved and their music teachers. Da iawn! Winners for the second year in a row.
Today (Friday) is Pupil Review Day. It’s a crucial day in the school calendar because it gives pupils the chance to reflect upon their performance throughout the year and to set targets for themselves in the new academic year. It is also a day when pupils get involved in many different activities around the school.
We also have our termly Achievement Assemblies taking place from Thursday this week to next Monday. These are occasions that Mr Tucker and I really enjoy because it gives us a chance to reward pupils for their efforts and achievements in many different fields. The range and diversity of areas in which our young people excel always amazes me. Perhaps as a nation we should be more forthcoming in celebrating and publicising our successes. We’re certainly aiming to do so as a school.
Last week of the school year next year but there’s still plenty going on so it’s important that pupils attend up to the very end of term.
Have a great weekend everyone.
