Cymer 20 - 7 Omagh Academy
Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda senior rugby team hosted Omagh School Academy on the 14th of November 2013. The game was highly competitive with Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda running out winners of the game by 20 points to 7. It was a fantastic experience for pupils to enjoy the competitve nature of international rugby whilst also respecting and understanding each others culture and traditions. Both teams were a credit to their recognised establishements and country. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to visit Ulser, Ireland in the near future to challenge Omagh Academy on their turf.

The eco-council is eager for the school to take part and try to reduce our use of energy. Please be responsible and try to make better use of electricity, please switch off lights when you can and switch off any un-use technology. Encourage others also to take part in switch off fortnight and do our part for the earth. Switch off fortnight is the 18th of November until the 2nd of December.
