Narberth Food Festival

On Friday, September 23, the Year 11 Hospitality and Catering pupils of Ysgol Greenhill were busy demonstrating their skills at the Narberth food festival.

As part of the festival’s Education Day, more than 80 children from Narberth, Tavernspite and Templeton schools came along to take part in workshops based on a food theme. There was a chance for the children to get hands-on and have a go at sausage making and cake decorating; to learn about seaweed, coastal foraging and biodiversity, make popcorn for a taste test, get creative with some fruit themed art and take part in a heritage quiz with Narberth Museum.

The Greenhill students had spent the previous day baking over a hundred cupcakes for the occasion, gave an enthusiastic audience of primary pupils a demonstration and ran workshops on how to decorate them. Well done to all involved!

New Faces at Greenhill Art Club

Wednesday, September 28 was the first session of Ysgol Greenhill’s Year 7 & 8 Art club. It was wonderful to see so many of our new Year 7s get the chance to express their creative sides. Last week, pupils got to experiment with a range of painting techniques, producing some excellent work.

The Art club is available to all Year 7 and 8 pupils, and is held at lunchtime every Wednesday in room 512.  If pupils would like more information, please pop along and see Mrs. King.

Coffee Morning for Macmillan

A couple of weeks ago saw the annual staff coffee morning in aid of Macmillian Cancer Support being held in the Ysgol Greenhill staffroom.  Staff enjoyed the wide range of cakes and treats on offer during break and lunchtime, and raised £127.78 for a very worthy cause.  A big thank you to everyone who took part.

Derby Day VII

Ysgol Greenhill Senior 1st XV rugby team took on the boys from Ysgol Harri Tudor for the International Origin Cup.  This trophy was kindly donated by former pupils of the two schools, who have gone on to achieve Senior Rugby honours for Wales - James Merriman (Ysgol Greenhill), Courtney Keight (Greenhill), Jonathan Thomas (Ysgol Harri Tudur), Dom Day (Harri Tudur) and Tal Selley (Harri Tudur).

This year, the game was kindly hosted by Tenby RFC, and saw a curtain raiser match being played by the Year 7 teams of Ysgol Greenhill and Ysgol Harri Tudur, with both teams playing their first matches for their secondary schools. We look forward to seeing these boys playing for the trophy itself in a few years.

The trophy match itself was a tense event, with some excellent performances being put in by players from both teams.  In the end, it was the boys from Ysgol Greenhill who came out victorious, successfully retaining the International Origin Cup. Congratulations boys!

A massive thank you to Tenby RFC for both allowing the teams to play on their home ground and their continuing support.
