We are all very proud of the Year 12 students who completed a charity bike ride along the Taff Trail in memory of their fellow student Robert Togden, a keen cyclist who tragically passed away last year. The group rode from Cardiff to Swansea on the trail and all the boys have been sponsored by friends, family and school staff in the hope of raising as much money as possible. The funds raised will go to establishing a secure bike shed in Robert’s memory, with any remaining money going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Well done to Daniel Skentelbery, Ronan Bywater-Lees, Matthew Coughtrey, Daniel Righton, Jonathan Gambling, Nick Constantino-Russell, Joe Pollock and Robert Cavaye.

The school was alive with colour on Wednesday of last week as we held our annual Eisteddfod for Years 7 and 8. Pupils wore their house colours to cheer on their peers in the stage and house competitions.
Overall winners in Year 7 were the students of Gwynedd House and in Year 8, Powys House students were victorious. Well done to all who participated and gained housepoints.
Senior Ski trip to Flachau, Austria
Art Department trip to Venice
Art students have returned to start the new half term inspired by the beauty and architecture of Venice.
During their half term holiday, they were able to experience a vaporetto cruise on the Grand Canal and visits to St Mark’s Square, the Peggy Guggenheim museum and the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua.
Venice exceeded our expectations. Pupils asked why we could not stay a day or two more! There are many beautiful places in the world to explore but I am sure that Venice will remain a wonderful memory for many.

Cardiff's Alice Nottingham received a very important email last week - confirmation that she had been selected as a volunteer (they will be called "Clyde-siders") at this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Hurdler Alice (17), who is a student at Stanwell School in Penarth, was one of 50,000 (yes, 50,000) who applied a year ago for places as volunteers. And, naturally, she said that her preferred sport would be athletics.
By last September, the applications had been reduced by a half and 25,000 applicants travelled to Glasgow (at their own expense) to be interviewed. Alice obviously gave a good interview and is one of the 5,000 finally selected - and she will be helping at the athletics stadium; her dream come true.
The next stage is to attend three training days and the first one is on March 7th; to discover exactly what is involved and what she will be doing. Alice's hope is that she might have a task in the arena (perhaps as a kit carrier) but she will have to wait and see.
Voluinteers will receive a standard uniform but all other expenses have to be paid by them. She will probably stay in a volunteers' camp that will be specially created in Glasgow.
This will be an exciting experience for Alice and we congratulate her and wish her well.
