Sports Day 2015!

Yesterday we held our Sports Day in Spytty Stadium! It was a magnificent day as many of our students participated in a number of athletic and field events. All our students did their houses proud and students who did not compete cheered and supported their team mates from the crowd! Winners included: Jake Seville in the 1500m, Tyler Bird 200m, Thomas Lyneck 800m and many more! Winners of the senior male and female athletes included Joel Smith and Lucy Ralston who were great competitors throughout the day! Look on our school twitter @DuffrynSchool for other winners and teams.

It was a close day for the all houses but in the end the house team of the year went to Morganwwg! Well done everybody!

Sports Awards Evening

Last night was an excellent evening recognising all our young and talented sports stars! A number of students were given medals and recognition for their participation in a variety of sports which they have competed in over the last year. Our guest speaker was Michael Flynn who has made over 400 appearances for eight clubs including Wigan Athletic, Bradford City and his home town club Newport County.  He gave a very motivational speech about the importance of education and sport and how everyone should aspire to be their best and to achieve their set goals.

A number of medals and trophies were given to students throughout the night. In particular,Jake Young Young for winning Sportsman of the Year,  Jayde Watts for winning Sportswoman of the Year and our Year Nine football team for winning Team of Year. Also, a very big well done to all those who won many other excellent sporting awards!

It was a great night to recognise the successes of our students and a big thank you to all those who helped plan the night and those who attended!
