Life Science Challenge

Category : News

On 21st June 2017, a team of 4 year 10 boys from Ysgol Clywedog travelled to Cardiff to participate in the 2017 Life Science Challenge organised by Cardiif University.  This is a national; quiz designed to stretch more able pupils, covering all aspects of science, from forensics to astronomy.  The Ysgol, Clywedog team were the only team in North Wales to qualify for the quarter finals.
They were entered into a ‘head to head’ competition against 3 times winners, Whitchurch High School from Cardiff.  The boys did incredibly well, but sadly, Whitchurch School won by only 1.5 points!!!! The Head of Science there said it was the closest competition they have had. Mrs Flanagan, Head of Science at Ysgol Clywedog said ‘I am so proud of our team.  They were gracious in defeat and shook hands with the other team.  They showed extensive scientific knowledge and really enjoyed the quiz.’  Next year, it is hoped that these boys will train up the next team from Ysgol Clywedog and we will rise to the challenge again.

By Your Side

Category : Events

As part of a project in Miss Lang’s English lessons some of our year 8 students were asked to write to someone that they idolised or looked up to. One student chose to

write to a member of The Alarm about his music and charitable work.

We have since received a correspondence on behalf of Mike Peters, internationally acclaimed musician, cancer patient and proud Welshman. He was so impressed by the letter that he has personally invited our class to join him on part of a fundraising walk in Wrexham on Friday 16th June 2017.

The walk is in aid of the By Your Side appeal. Mike Peters will be raising money by walking 130 miles across North Wales before finishing with a hike up Snowdon, Wales’ highest mountain, on the 24th of June for the annual Snowdon Rocks event. The event aims to raise £351,120 to support Cancer care in North Wales.

Please encourage our students in their efforts to support such a worthy cause.
