Successful ‘Gwaun Fest’ celebrations at Ysgol Bro Gwaun

Successful ‘Gwaun Fest’ celebrations at Ysgol Bro Gwaun

To celebrate the achievements, progress and successes of pupils at Ysgol Bro Gwaun, this year an inclusive festival was arranged at the end of the summer term.  With live music from four local bands namely Sleeping Dogs, Sharp music, ‘band Mari Mathias’ and Honey Fungus, performances from the school Folk Fusion band, soloists and pupil bands, ‘Gwaun Fest’ certainly did not disappoint. An incredible stage set the scene provided by TCW Engineering. The day had been organised to ensure that all could participate in the end of term activity day, which had more recently deterred pupils from attending due to increasing costs.  In addition to the music element, an inflatable slide, wipe-out machine, gladiator inflatable, bouncy castle and rodeo rugby ball, provided by Pembrokeshire Bouncy castles, all contributed to the fun. Drama workshops were provided by Cast and Crew, Art workshops by Raul, whilst Mellusion magic amazed the crowds.  Sporting challenges were included and the  Fishguard Army cadets put pupils through their paces. Pupils were glittered and bejazzled by Maria Beauty, as well as being given the opportunity to have henna tattoos, hair braids and face painting. Head of Year sponging was a highlight, whilst an ‘In for a Penny’ quiz caused competition amongst year groups. As a school we were delighted to be supported on the day by local community groups and businesses such as Transition Bro Gwaun and Lochmeyler Farm Icecream. We are keen to further strengthen our community links in the future.  A huge thank you is given to the Fishguard Town Council, Goodwick Youth bank, Ffrindiau Bro Gwaun, Fishguard Lions, Peppers, RLH Architectural Designs, Edukey, Mark Roberts and Jewsons who all contributed to supporting through sponsoring the event.  It was a fantastic day of celebrations, collaboration and participation, all made possible by the generosity of local groups that have given of their skills, talents and time.

 

 

We have high expections for ourselves as a school and for all of our pupils.
