We were very pleased to hear of Chloe Wilson's experiences studying at the New York Academy of Dramatic Arts. She was a guest artist at the prestigious St David's Day Gala, held by the New York St David's Day society. She has also received numerous offers to perform around New York - including the up-coming New York Cymanfa Ganu, to be held at Rutgers Presbyterian Church up on the upper West Side. We were so pleased to hear of her continued success!

Congratulations to Year 11 pupil Seren Farrup who captained her football team, 'Rhydyfelin Rebels' to victory against Newcastle Emlyn, in the FAW under 16 cup.

Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed being part of the Consortium's 'Mission Discovery' project, held last week at Coleg y Cymoedd, Nantgarw. Thank you very much for a very worthwhile experience!

Pupils from year 8 to 12 participate in a project 'inspiring future doctors' under the guidance of practicing medical students from Cardiff University. More workshops to follow!

We were very pleased to welcome Kirsty Williams, Borobi and members of Team Wales to Y Cymer on Friday morning 10th of March. Borobi is visiting Wales, bringing his unique dance and cheerful persona to inspire Team Wales supporters ahead of next year's Games and it was a real privilege to offer him a warm Welsh welcome during his visit. It was an honour too to welcome Kirsty Williams to our school.
