On February 3, a group of Year 7s accompanied by a group of Sixth Formers and teachers underwent a trip to Llangrannog. Ysgol Greenhill was also joined by Ysgol Bro-Gwaun and Ysgol Dewi Sant. Here is an account by one of the SWOGS from Greenhill (writes Gillian Roberts).

As a SWOG (a Sixth Former who would assist in helping the teachers look after the pupils), I first found the idea of this trip daunting, but now looking back, I enjoyed every moment.

For those who do not know much about Llangrannog, it is an Urdd Centre where young Welsh learners can experience several exciting activities, as well as enjoying learning the Welsh language. The activities included skiing, tobogganing, swimming, bikes, roller-skating, horse-riding and an assault course.

Beth Flowers thought 'Yn Llangrannog mae ceffylau yn gret!' However, Jack Blackledge preferred roller-skating: 'Rydw i'n hoffi llanfnrolio yn Llangrannog!'

During the day there were also various language activities to keep everyone busy, and many awards were given for excellent effort. These included, writing a newspaper, making a video, writing postcards, language games, sketches, aerobics, singing, folk dancing and games in the centre.

My highlight of the week was the Eisteddfod on the last night. Watching everybody performing with great enthusiasm showed how successful the trip had been. To round off the evening, the SWOGs bravely worked together to produce an amusing show, which entertained all. Fortunately, some did manage to find some more energy for the disco which followed.

I am pleased to report that the language course was extremely successful and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Thankfully, everyone returned safe and well. I am sure that there were many tired Year 7s on the weekend!

I would like to thank everyone at Llangrannog and everyone who came. Also, I must not forget my fellow SWOGs and especially the teachers, Miss Thomas, Miss Pike and Miss Miles, who made the trip worthwhile and beneficial. Diolch yn fawr!


Next Tuesday the curtain will go up for the first performance of Jesus Christ Superstar. The rehearsing will be over, the nerves should be in check and everyone should enjoy a really good show.

Would everyone please note, the seating arrangements for the above production will be different from normal. All tickets purchased are marked with a row letter and a number, therefore a seat bearing that letter and number will be available to the ticket bearer only. Also each night represents a different coloured ticket - Tuesday is blue, Wednesday is mauve, Thursday is pink and Friday is yellow.


On January 26, the Under 18 team visited the present county champions, Sir Thomas Picton.

The game started slowly with both teams attacking well. However, in the second half, Greenhill started well and a through pass by Sally to Carrie ended up with a goal.

The final score was 1-0 to Greenhill and player of the match was Miriam Brown.

Team: Selina Morgan, Imelda Rossi, Jenny Edwards, Holly Watkins, Sarah Cooper, Miriam Brown, Hannah MacKay, Sally Maher, Carrie Slack, Teresa Keight and Kelly Williams.


Pupils in Year 7 and 8 recently participated in a 'Get to know your foreign language assistant' competition.

Jenny Allen, Amy Bayley, Cherish Brown, Megan David, Hannah Emery, Charlie Treharne and Natasha Vandepas, of Year 8, produced a photo album about Sylvain Cossette's interests, while Year 7 pupils, Sophie Batten, Lauren Farr, Adam Hensman, Lewis Hodgson, Clara Lester, Jamie Lewis, Penny Liddel, Amy O'Rourke, Lacy Parker and Emma Tucker made a lifesize drawing of Sylvain labelled with lots of information about him.

They hope to have more news about the competition by early March.
