On January 28th the year 10 Dance class were invited to perform at St. David's Hall in Cardiff as part of the Cardiff Schools Dance festival. The school has never been invited to showcase their work before so this was a huge opportunity for the pupils to demonstrate their skills in front of parents, teachers and pupils of Cardiff.
The pupils performed a recent piece of choreography that won them 3rd place at last year’s Eisteddfod held in Builth Wells. The pupils are currently working towards completing their BTEC level 2 qualification and WBQ community challenge where they have been taking their Dance skills into the community and teaching the younger pupils in our primary schools how to perform, choreograph and appreciate their own work.
A number of the Year 10 dancers recently performed in the School production of the Wedding singer and will be performing in this year’s National Eisteddfod, the school eisteddfod and Dance back to Broadway which will be on June 25th, 26th and 27th 2019. Don’t forget to buy your tickets early so that you are not disappointed.
As part of the schools' More Able and Talented (MAT) programme, twelve Treorchy Comprehensive School Year 9 pupils graduated from the Brilliant Club Scholars Programme. This is a programme designed to support pupils to develop skills and knowledge to make ambitious and successful applications to universities. At the same time the pupils developed their academic skills to support their school work day to day. The pupils were all required to write a 2000 word essay on the topic “Government’s Cinderella: Financing the Public Health Sector in Kenya” which was marked at degree level which all pupils passed with flying colours. Eleven of the twelve pupils received 2:1 grades and parents joined the pupils at Cardiff University to celebrate in the success and to witness a study skills session. They also got the opportunity to talk to students talking about their experiences at Cardiff University and also take part in the graduation ceremony.
