|News from the world of athletics of an incredible sporting achievement by Plasmawr pupils. The Year 9 and 10 girls team won the Welsh Athletics under 16 Plate competition in Brecon last week. The pupils were: Nel Williams, Megan Davies, Sian Jones, Carys Osborne, Catrin Lord, Bethan Jerrett, Elen Evans (Captain), Elin Glaves and Stella Hubbard Smith. As part of the success, Catrin Lord broke the Welsh long jump record and Elin Glaves set a new javelin record distance for this age group. This is the first athletic team from Plasmawr to gain success at this level. Amazing and well done.|
Congratulations to the 38 Year 10 pupils who successfully completed an expedition for the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. They had to prepare and carry all the necessary resources for camping for two days and walked for 10 hours along the paths of Gower, and this in very warm and sunny conditions. They are a credit to the School. Thanks to the staff for attending, and especially to Miss Emma Richards for doing most of the organising and administration. Excellent job!
