Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda
Friday, May 29, 2020

This week saw the marking of the end of our Year 11 students' formal education at Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda.

Congratulations to Year Eleven pupil, Mathew Berry aged sixteen, who competed in the Tang Soo Do martial art World Championship over the weekend.

Many congratulations to Year 11 pupil Kesia Coburn on her recent sky dive at Swansea Air Field. This plucky 16 year old from Treorchy raised a fantastic £500 for Welsh charity Ty Hafan by holding an Easter Raffle, baking cakes to sell at break-time and collecting sponsorship money. Fantastic Kesia, we admire your bravery very much!

Staff and pupils wish the very best to all our students who will be commencing their external examinations next week. We are confident that their hard work, perseverance and dedication, along with the support of their teachers, will pay dividends in the summer. Pob hwyl i chi gyd!
