‘Da iawn’ to all of our Year 7 and 8 students. It has been a tough few weeks with the Data Handling and National Numeracy Tests to revise for; therefore I offer my congratulations to all of those who rose to the challenge.
Also, a special ‘well done’ to the students who achieved exceptional results in the Data Handling test and received Letters of Commendation in our Mathematics Rewards Assembly.
Congratulations to the Year 10 Football team who are now in the final of the Gwent cup after defeating Newport High 3 – 1 in the semi-final. They are now in two finals the Newport Cup along with the Gwent. Well done to all concerned.
Our Young Enterprise company, Vedic Vibes, won the Newport and Monmouthshire Area finals yesterday and will now go onto represent the region in the Welsh finals, to be held in June at the Millennium Centre. The group consists of eight students from Year 12 and have been selling their beautifully hand decorated henna candle products throughout the year.
There were 7 teams competing yesterday; 2 from Rougemont, 2 from Haberdashers Monmouth Girls, 1 from Monmouth Boys and 1 from King Henry VIII in Abergavenny. And, of course Duffryn were there not only to win but to also defend our title as being last year’s area winners!
Our team picked up the award for Best Trade Stand and Interview before being named the overall winners of the whole competition. They narrowly missed out on winning the other awards on offer by just 2 or 3 marks. They have some preparation work to do before the Welsh finals but are very excited about this opportunity.
