Defibrillator on site at Ysgol Clyewedog

Category : Events

With thanks to the generosity of our fantastic staff, parents and pupils, we have  fundraised and purchased a defibrillator to house on site.

Ysgol Clywedog held a number of charity events raising funds towards the new defibrillator. It has now been installed on at the school for use at school and during the leisure centre hours in the evenings and weekends.

Headmaster, Matt Vickery says: “A big thank you to all the members of the local community who contributed to the fundraising. You never know when emergency medical equipment will need to be deployed – hopefully never. But having access to an on-site defibrillator will provide valuable time in the event it is needed, and could save a life.”

Defibrillation is a procedure used to treat life threatening conditions that affect the rhythm of the heart. The procedure involves the delivery of an electric shock to the heart to re-establish normal conduction of the heart’s electrical impulse.

The defibrillator is located in the reception of the leisure centre at the school and can be used without any training.

Ysgol Clywedog is now part of the Business Class Wrexham Cluster. The school is partnered with NEST Cymru and British Gas. Business Class is a tried and tested programme, developed by Business in the Community, that builds lasting partnerships between business and schools in Wales.   Those partnerships, based firmly on the needs of the school and the priorities of the business, will transform the life chances of young people and develop talented employees for the future.

By bringing business and schools together in a structured way, Business Class improves young people’s understanding of the world of work and their awareness of career choices, and develops their employability skills.

Business Class provides holistic support to help schools develop a more effective environment for learners.

We are already planning the first events for this year and look forward to the partnership and the opportunity it brings.

Cardiff University Life Sciences Challenge Runners-up

Category : Events

On 14th September, a team of young scientists from Ysgol Clywedog travelled to Cardiff to take part in the finals of the Cardiff University Life Sciences Challenge 2018.  Ysgol Clywedog were the only school in North Wales to make it through to the finals which were held in Cardiff University Medical School.
The boys faced tough opposition from St Cyres, Penarth who won by 4 points.  The questions were demanding and the pace was fast.  The competition was streamed live and many pupils and staff back home in Wrexham were able to cheer the team along and send their support.
The school are very proud of the team’s achievement in getting so far and essentially being the second best English speaking quiz team in Wales! They competed in 3 other rounds to get to the finals, proving their scientific knowledge and problem solving ability each time.  The organisers praised the team for their sportsmanship in such a close competition.  Mrs Flanagan, head of science at Ysgol Clywedog said ‘I am so impressed by the standard of the competition.  it was incredibly challenging and our team played so well.  The support from school and the way this quiz has encouraged other pupils into taking more interest in scientific studies has been incredible.’  The school hope to enter again this year and continue to inspire young medics.
