|It is with great pleasure that we can announce that ‘Digon’, a Plasmawr group led by Mr Marc Lewis (Head of Drama & Media Studies), has been nominated for a St David’s Day Award by the First Minister, Mr Carwyn Jones. ‘Digon’ has received an incredible amount of attention and recognition for its ground breaking work on anti-homophobic bullying.|
|A group of Year 7s & 8s had a very successful week recently in the field of gymnastics. Caitlin Boyle and Maisie Goman won the pairs competition at the Urdd gala in Aberystwyth, before joining with Georgia Hancock to win the trio competition. Within two days, with Theo, Adam and Dominic, they won the Floor and Vault competition at the Welsh Schools final, with the girls and Dominic also victorious as a foursome. They will all be representing Wales at the British Finals competition in March.|
|A group of six of Year 12 Plasmawr pupils won the judges special award at the recent F1 Challenge competition held in Swansea. The task was to design an F1 car using computer aided design software (CAD), and race against similar cars. They were also required to compile a report and make a formal presentation in front of the judges. We would like to thank the Principality for supporting the project.|
