Staff and pupils at Stepaside CP School are once again feeling proud of their pupil and friend, Alfie Luger. Whilst Alfie was at his Gym training last week the rest of the school gathered in assembly to watch a video of him performing his gymnastics. Last week Alfie was nominated for most promising Gymnast of the year at an awards evening organised by West Wales Gymnastics. He was unable to attend the ceremony but he won the category and was presented with his award by former Olympian and Wales Gymnastic coach, Andrew Morris at his training session this week.

Congratulations Carys and Eliza on receiving your lifeguard and swimming certificates.
Lots of awards were made this term for attendance. Medals were given to pupils with 100% attendance in the Summer term. Prize winners were drawn from names of pupils who had full weeks attendance this term. Their name goes in to the pot each time they complete a full week. We also had four pupils with 100% attendance for the whole academic year. They were rewarded with a special certificate and a monetary prize.
Another opportunity for designing posters came in the form of the Kilgetty in Bloom competition.
Each year there is also and environmental award presented to a group or individual from the school to recognise their efforts in the field of outdoor education and caring for the enviroment. This year the Gary Waters memorial cup was presented to Dosbarth Draenog for their Forest School work.
Dosbarth Mochyn Daear have been participating in Burns By your Side reading to dogs scheme this year. Michelle brings in her dog, the very popular Frankie, each Monday and the pupils get the chance to read to him. The scheme boosts the confidence of reluctant readers as the dog provides relaxation and a non judgemental audience.
