behind the waterfallTen pupils from year 7 walked to the famous Sgwd yr Eira waterfall in the Brecon Beacons National Park on Wednesday 2nd October. The previous night it had rained heavily, so the falls were spectacular with a good flow of water. The entire group braved the walk behind the falls and experienced the unique experience of looking through the curtain of water from behind. Well done to Kyle Rees-Griffiths, KatieLloyd, Maria Davies, Shane Hayes, Cameron Harvey, Liam Beckley, Seren Hopkins, Sophie Favell, Megan Groves and Ella Davey.

Well done to Shaun Nally, Jay Jenkins, Alice Sparkes, Trudy Pounder, Caitlin Greening, Abbey-Jayne Rowlands and Dylan Piecha all from 7P. A big thank you to Jacqueline Tsang, a student from the University of South Wales, for accompanying the group.

DSC 0583On Friday September 27th, staff and pupils from the sixth form participated in a Macmillan Coffee Morning to raise money. Most of the staff and some of the sixth form made a variety of cakes and cup cakes that ranged from 50p to 80p. The cakes were sold in the boost bar and staff room at break time and lunch time on Friday along with tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

Approximately 1000 cakes were brought in and all were sold. £395 has been raised and we are still counting in the hope of reaching £400 all together. Also there was a competition held for pupils and staff to guess how many coffee beans were in a jar. The winner will be announced at the end of the week.

Miss Stickler would like to thank everybody involved for their contributions without which this would have not been possible.
