They were extremely successful there with the under 14s team finishing 3rd in the Cup final; the under 13s winning their Cup Final — well done boys! In their last game the under 14s beat the Truro team 17 to 5 to come 3rd in the competition.
Congratulations to all the boys for their success — they were excellent ambassadors for the school and its local community. Our special thanks go to Kevin Thomas and all the staff and parents of the school for arranging and supporting the trip. The aim of the project was to develop creative writing skills through in English, which has been led by their English teacher Michelle Mosley.
As well as developing their writing skills, the pupils had opportunities to develop their art skills by bringing their stories and poems to life through various images. The pupils attended a series of ten workshops with professional writer Heather Dyer and professional artist Alana Tyson. This is what some of the year 7 pupils had to say about the project and their experience: Members of the School Council and the Eco Council will be collecting litter around Nebo Road, Llanrwst and around the school site to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and putting rubbish in the bin.

It has certainly been very helpful in raising awareness and reducing the amount of rubbish on our school fields after lunch!

Easter Skiing Trip: We needed to get up early on Friday the 7th of April to get the bus from school. I arrived at school to meet everyone arriving with their multicoloured cases, each one dragged in turn to the back of the bus. That was the beginning of our journey — everyone sitting on the bus full of excitement, ready for the long journey. We walked around the village that would be our home for the next five days, admiring the fantastic views.
In any direction, high mountains were covered in a white snowy blanket. We went to fetch our skiing gear to use the following morning before enjoying a tasty supper and crawling to our beds, extited and tired.Conwy North Wales Walking Tour
I enjoyed the lift up to the skiing place — an opportunity to relax before our first session with Nancy, our skii instructor. On this first day I had fun, falling everywhere, a taste of what was to come.
The second day began with my exhausted self walking down the stairs for breakfast. This was a lot of fun, skiing the whole way down.
At night we had a 10 pin bowling session after supper at the hotel — a lot of fun and more delicious food. As the third day dawned, an even more exhausted self emerged — but I carried on regardless. The morning brought another journey on the magic carpet followed by a skiing obstable race through plastic cones and pulley ropes to help us back up the slope. The sun was burning hot and bright. In the evening we went to the arcade — spending all our spare coins.
The last day, the fourth day of skiing dawned. Today we went on the blue slope in the afternoon — the best day so far. Skiing down the side of the mountain enjoying the breathtaking views.
We went on the chair lift to reach the top. On our way down the breeze blew in our faces. By the end of the day we had gone down the slope at least 4 times. This was the last night so a tasty celebration of pizza for us!

I slept well that night — completely exhausted! On the last day our gear was returned to the shop. We stayed behind that morning to pack. By now we were looking forward to our journey home, some sleep and the chance to see our families again. Even so it was disappointing to leave France. Once everyone had returned from the slopes we did a little sunbathing.
The bus was due to leave at five pm with the long drive home getting us back to Dyffryn Conwy by 3pm the next day. Pupils in year 7 had the opportunity to go around pupils and staff at the school selling raffle tickets with these lovely Easter Eggs as the reward. Thank you to everyone who supported us with this event. Cadi is extremely musical and has been composing since she was 10 years old.
She is masterful at playing the guitar, piano and singing. We are thrilled to hear of her success in this national and prestigious competition. We wish her all the best with the next step and know that we are bound to hear far more from this talented composer in the future.
As part of the day pupils were given a presentation with staff in the Lowry Outlet shopping centre before taking a journey to Media City where they produced some map work. After lunch in the dockland area they attended an exhibition on how the cotton and textile industries worked in the Museum for Culture and Science.
This was an opportunity to explore the different and interesting exhibitions about the history of these industries in the city. Before leaving to journey back to Llanrwst we visited the Etihad Stadium in the east of the city — the home of Manchester United. It was a busy and varied day — and we were lucky with the weather which helped! Miss Japheth was representing the school with the British Council as she researched into the use of ICT within the classroom setting.
She was invited to visit pupils at various schools across the city and see their use of iPads and robots in class. This is what Miss Japheth has to say about her experience: During the visit, I has fortunate to meet and discuss with pupils from various backgrounds in Hong Kong. We here in Wales have much to share with our friends in Hong Kong and I hope that we will be able to develop the links made in the near future.
Conwy and The Great War: We welcome your support and wish the production all the best. The school council also arranged Welsh music to be played in the canteen during the day.
On the 20th of January he travelled from North Wales to Switzerland a journey that took him 22 hours. He took part in race training for three days and then on the fourth day, the 26th of January, the competing began. He races a 39 gate on a meter course, Giant Slalom, and came 19th overall in 1: On the following day he races again in a 24 gate, meter course called Stubby Slalom.
He came 20th overall with the time of He also took part in The North Wales sports club race and came 1st. After the competing there was a prize giving ceremony in Champery and Scott had his picture taken with Richard Parks, a former Wales International Rugby player and Extreme Athlete, now an Ambassador for Snowsport Wales.
There are many people to thank for helping to get the run set up - Ashford Borough Council were instrumental, as was parkrun's ambassador for Kent and event director at Whitstable parkrun, Jacky MacDonald. The event, and indeed all parkruns, simply could not take place without its volunteers and today's heroes were recognised, as is customary, with a hearty round of applause during the briefing. In total 19 different running clubs were represented at the inaugural event - Ashford AC, Ashford Tri and Ashford and District RRC are the local clubs and were all represented amongst the field of 90 participants.
However, the majority of the field was made up of non club-runners. The gazelles at the front spring into action and disappear into the distance at a pace that the majority of parkrunners can only dream of. Others start off at a more leisurely pace, quite happy to use the run as an opportunity to socialise.
This is one of parkrun's great strengths - parkrun themselves are not putting on a race, they are just hosting a free, timed, 5k event in pleasant parkland surroundings. How each individual decides to approach the run is completely down to themselves.
As they say in the parkrun world 'it can be whatever you want it to be'. It starts near the tennis courts on the eastern side of the park adjacent to Jemmett Road and follows the path around the Hubert Fountain where participants reach the northern boundary and follow the cycle path along the Great Stour in a westerly direction.
This path forms part of National Cycle Route 18, so runners should take note to be aware of bicycles coming from both directions. This section mostly consists of open grass areas but also has a good wildlife habitat and features areas that have been sown as meadows.
There are small wooded areas dotted around the park and the route weaves and meanders around and through them. At this point, the route takes a slight right hand turn where the route briefly leaves the main shared-use path and loops around following the curve of the river.
The route rejoins the main shared-use path with a very sharp left-hand turn which brings runners back towards the formal part of the park.
There is about metres of two-way parkrun traffic at this point. Before you turn back into the formal part, there is an unusual point where you run through a basketball court. I don't truly understand why it has been positioned across one of the main walkways rather than in its own dedicated space. Only one more lap to go now. Upon arriving back at the start area at the end of the second lap, runners are directed into a short triangular loop along the formal tree lined paths before leaving the tarmac and running the last 30 or so metres on grass.
Each runner is then given a finishing token. This finishing token is then taken to the volunteer on registration - they will have a small scanning device and will firstly scan your personal barcode and then your finishing token.
