Sports Day Fun
Our annual Sports' Day was held this year at Newport Athletics Stadium. Once again, a wealth of talent and healthy competition was on display!
The Welsh Department at Y Cymer hosted its annual transition funday last weekend, welcoming all our Year 6 pupils to the school for a day full of activities, such as drama and art workshops. These were followed by a book quiz and dramatic presentation, based on our cluster novel.
Pupil Project Success
A group of Year 8 boys received an invitation to present at a special ceremony held to celebrate the success of the PUPIL scheme, a scheme which aims to help pupils to understand problems in their community. All schools from Rhondda Cynon Taf were represented at the event which was held at the Rhondda Fach Sports Centre recently.
A group of lucky boys were invited to take part in a musical workshop recently. The workshop was held by three members of the world famous choir ‘Only Men Aloud', and its aim, as well as proving that singing is fun, was to promote their new venture, a boys' ‘Only Boys Aloud' choir.
