At the County Eisteddfod, the unison group and the action song were awarded first prize. They will be competing at the Urdd National Eisteddfod at Llanerchaeron in June.  The choir was runner up in the competition for choirs consisting of up to 150 pupils. Excellent!!!

Congratulations to William Lamb on winning the prize for best literature in Welsh during 2008/09. Mr Selwyn Griffith has donated this annual award to the School, and we are greatly indebted to him.

The School takes enormous pride in receiving an award from the 2009 Welsh Heritage Schools Enterprise. A cheque for £200 was received, donated by the Wales Women’s Archives. The project was based on the ‘Familiar Surroundings’ theme. The work received the following adjudication.

“As could be expected from such a title, this project dealt with many local elements, including an excellent Action Song – based on the folk tale Marged Ŷch Ifan – local visits and landmarks, an opportunity to learn new skills with local artists and meet the local Crowned?Chaired?? Bard. The pupils also studied the Celts, Branwen and Siwan. As well as studying the past, the pupils discussed how to share their heritage, improve their area and a debate was held on the future of the local Sherpa bus service.
Their presentations and bilingual interpretation of their work included a diversity of mediums, ranging from digital films, information sheets and booklets, to their tapestry of Celtic crosses. Employing thinking skills and developing an empathy with the characters was a strong element in the project. The pupils showed that they had learnt a great deal about their area and that they took pride in their heritage.”
