Ysgol Bro Gwaun’s 2019 Prize giving Evening

Ysgol Bro Gwaun’s 2019 Prize giving Evening

Ysgol Bro Gwaun’s school hall was the venue for a relaxed and enjoyable Certificate and Prize giving Evening.  Mrs Wendy Raymond, Chair of the Governing Body, introduced Dr Alis Deason, this year’s Guest Speaker. Dr Deason is a past pupil of the school, and her inspiring speech made her an excellent role model for young people.

In her address, Alis detailed how she was determined to use her persistence to succeed in the world of work.  Following A Levels at Ysgol Bro Gwaun, Alis studied Natural Science at Cambridge, where she also completed her PhD in Astrophysics.  Following her Degree, Alis carried out research into Astronomy at the University of Santa Cruz, California, and at Stanford University.  Her current role is as Assistant Professor of Astronomy at Durham University.

On congratulating pupils on their excellent results, Alis encouraged the audience to persevere and be flexible as they continue to work hard towards their future goals.

Headteacher, Mr Paul Edwards, stressed how many aspects within school life should combine to ensure all pupils achieve their goals, and thanked all concerned for their invaluable efforts.

The Head pupils, Elen Maycock and Iago Evans, gave the guests an informative and comprehensive overview of 2017-18’s wide and varied range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities, and the Deputies, Ellie Cleary and Morgan Evans delivered the vote of thanks.


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