Warmest congratulations to the public speaking team of Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda on yet another outstanding achievement. The school’s record in this important Welsh medium competition is an illustrious one – six times winners in the past decade, as well as reaching the British final last year in the English medium competition. This time, the team, consisting of Year 13 student Sarah Louise Jones, Year 10 pupil Daniel Davies, and Courtney Adams, a Year 9 pupil and the youngest ever competitor in this competition, travelled to Tŷ Hywel, Cardiff Bay to compete in this year’s final after securing their place against seven other schools in the first round. Following some stiff competition, the team were once again announced the winners, with Courtney receiving the award for Best Chairperson – quite an achievement for a thirteen year old competing against Sixth Form pupils, and Daniel scooping the ‘Best Speaker of the Day’ award. Many congratulations on yet another outstanding result!
