Our Year Six debating team of Thomas, Cara and Joe participated in a cluster debating event at Treorchy Comprehensive this evening. Along with pupils from the other Year 6 classes in our cluster primary schools they were tutored by the Year 11 pupils at Treorchy Comprehensive and Mr. Lewis from the English department. They were able to learn how to develop skills in researching their topic, writing speeches and presenting them to an audience. They were presented with certificates by former pupil Josh Wilson, a member of the Year 11 debating team. Hopefully they will develop their talents like Josh has an emulate him end his fellow debaters in achieving success for their schools.

We organised a visit to the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday 19th February in conjunction with the Cardiff City Soccer School. Forty four parents and pupils enjoyed the trip, but not the result, as top of the table Cardiff City were beaten by two fortunate Brighton goals at the end of each half. The pupils and parents were excellent role models and as a result of Cardiff City's work with us in our community our photograph was displayed in the match day programme and we were escorted by Gary Wilmot, one of the club's ambassadors from the Soccer school. Hopefully we will be able to watch City playing in the Premier League next year despite the loss. Our pupils, and parents were a credit to the school and we hope to organise more opportunities to visit sporting events as a result.

I have tested several random pupils today and they all work in this case. If, for any reason, the problems persists please contact me in school.

The Park and Dare Theatre is celebrating it's centenery this year and the Rhondda Cynon Taff Cultural and Music Service have comissioned a young Welsh composer, Jack White, to compose a piece of music to commemorate this occasion. Pupils from our school have been asked to participate in the Junior School's choir and year 6 pupils, Mrs. Taylor and I were involved in a recording session where the composer took speach recordings to interwieve into the music. This is a very exciting project and one which I am sure that our pupils will enjoy. It is a unique piece of music which celebrates the rich heritage of the Upper Rhondda and the part that the hall has played in valley life over the past century. There will be a CD recording made and performances on both Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th March at 1p.m. and 7 p.m. Mrs. Johnson has contacted parents with the itinerary and I hope that as many parents who are interested will attend the performances.

The Rhondda Leader photographer will be in school tomorrow morning. You may dress your child in traditional Welsh costume or red clothes if you wish. Please note that there is no expectation on our part to buy any specific clothes for this photograph.
