National Schools Sport Week 2016

National School Sport Week will soon be upon us!

During this week on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, we intend to offer activities/trips for the pupils to attend. Tuesday 21st June will be the School Sports Day held at Leckwith Stadium, Cardiff.

There is information below on the trips we plan to run, but the viability of each trip will depend on the minimum number of pupils showing an interest to attend. In the case of a trip not being able to go ahead, a full refund will be given. 

There will also be trips at no charge to the pupils. These include a golf driving range and walks up Pen y Fan or to waterfalls. Also at no cost will be school based activities including cycling, archery, a climbing wall and wheelchair basketball.

If your son/daughter would like to attend any of the chargeable trips, please send payment along with the form attached with the letter (additional letters can be picked up from Pupil Services) by Thursday 26th May. Please make cheques payable to 'Pontypridd High School'.

Please note that pupils can only attend one trip per day.

A consent form from the venue will have to be filled in prior to attending the activity. These will be given out before Sports Week but must be returned prior to the trip.
