Competition Alert!

A very big well done to Nancy Williams, Charlotte Sheridan, Sophia Edwards and Georgina Rosier for winning the Anti-Bullying Competition which we ran in Stop Bullying Week. They created an excellent storyboard for a possible television advert to stop bullying. Well done girls!


A big Duffryn thank you from Dr P!

Many of you are aware that Sunday 7th of December I am running a race called ‘The Fully Monte Cute’ for the charity which works towards helping those that have a Genetic condition called Neurofibromatosis (NF1). This is a condition suffered by my step grandson aka ‘The butty boy’. Many thanks to those who have donated to my Just giving page. Also a very big thank you to Chanelle McNulty, Keeley Pope, Rhianna Hawkins, Claudia Dupe, Lily Gray for organising a cake sale which raised £80. Also, a big thank you to Montana May for raising £40. I am really touched but the generosity shown THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

History trip to Stratford and Warwick Castle.

As a reward for their hard work in school 34 pupils were lucky enough to go on a History trip to Stratford and Warwick Castle. The trip lasted two days and pupils were able to visit Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford town and watch a performance of the ‘Christmas Truce’. Pupils then visited the historic Warwick Castle and experienced the terrifying Warwick Dungeons. Many thanks to Mr Perkins for his hard work in organising this enjoyable and educational school trip.


Success for Young Enterprise @ Duffryn High School

Congratulations to The Corporate Mug Company, on their success at the annual Young Enterprise Trade Fair competition, held at ASDA Duffryn today.  The team won the runner up trophy just mising out on the winners cup.  They have recently discovered what it is like to have to deal with set backs in the business world, but today they came up trumphs with a fantastic trade stand, new products to help raise much needed capital, and a sales pitch that would win over Sir Alan Sugar! Even with frozen fingers and toes the team were still commended on their professionalism during an interview with the representitive from the Young Enterprise Newport and Monmouth board and in their excellent customer care with members of the public.
