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.

A massive well done to the winners of the Kier Colouring Competition. We've added some lovely photos of them to the gallery section on the website. We really do have some fabulous artists here at Penygarn!

Congratulations to Ryan

Congratulations to Ryan in Year 5 who recently competed in the prestigious DC Thomas Cup at the Principality Stadium!
