Well done to everyone!

On Wednesday 13th June, Penygarn school football team traveled to Cwmbran Stadium as they were involved in The Newport County Cup. Fourteen teams were entered and split into two groups of seven with the top four teams in each group progressing to the knockout stages. After four emphatic wins and two losses Penygarn progressed to the next round after finishing second in the group. In the quarter finals we met Padre Pio. The game ended nil-nil and went to penalties, unfortunately Penygarn were knocked out. It was a great run by the team who played excellent football throughout. Great progress has been made by the team who have reached the knockout stages of the previous two tournaments, and reaching the semi-finals of the Gwent Police cup. We will look forward to the next tournament and hopefully progressing further.

Outstanding Performance at Torfaen Dance Festival

Our children have done it once again, they've given all they've got with an amazing performance on the third evening of the Torfaen Dance Festival. This is the first year the festival has been held and it provides the opportunity for schools to showcase their dance skills, alongside raising money for charity. They performed to Little Mix 'Word Up' brilliantly and were met with rapturous applause. Dylan from Year 5 was highly commended for his performance and awarded a Torfaen Dance Festival T-shirt. The event was well attended by staff and parents, and we are all already looking forward to next year's event! A picture of the team has been added to full story which you can see by clicking on the news title.
