Year 6 children from Pembroke Dock Community School recently took part in the 'Ecokids' project. They sent out letters asking parents and children to donate any old and unused textiles. These items were then collected by the 'Ecokids' and weighed, the school received 55p per kg. Pembroke Dock Community School would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated their unwanted textiles as we managed to collect 723kgs, which meant we raised £397.65 for the school. The 'Ecokids' project will now distribute the textiles to deprived families around the world.


The Urdd gymnastic competition was held in Haverfordwest Leisure Centre. Pembroke Dock Community School took 12 pupils along to the competition for the first time in the school's history. Louise Mear was first in the girls individual sequence; Louise Mear and Ashleigh Boswell were first in the pairs competition. A team of 10 pupils: Stephanie Francis, Martha Wilson, Billy Roberts, Kirsty Cook, Nia Williams, Thomas Donovan, Kirsten Donovan, Lillie-Ella Boswell, Logan Boswell and Emma Cox took part in the group sequence and were also placed first. All competitors now go forward to the national final at Aberystwyth Leisure Centre on February 8.
