Swansea City sessions


Pupils in Dosbarth Cadno have been the first in the school to enjoy the fantastic session provided by the Swansea City Community Trust.  Sessions involve classroom based numeracy and literacy work followed by physical outdoor sessions.  During this school year all junior pupils will get to take part in these sessions.

Swansea City Football Tournament

Pictured is the Stepaside C.P. School football team that took part in the Pembrokeshire qualifiers for the EFL Kids Cup organised by Swansea City Community Trust at Greenhill School Tenby on Tuesday 15th October.

In total, the school played seven matches across the day. They played to a high standard throughout the tournament and were supported by a large group of parents and grandparents.

In their first game, they were defeated 1-0 by a strong Tenby team in a match that could have gone either way. In their second match, they beat St Teilos with goals from Olly and Dylan. They continued to play well and next defeated Pembroke Dock with Dylan scoring twice. In their next match, they defeated Penrhyn 4- 0 with goals from Logan (2) Dylan and Kai.

The winning run was continued as they beat Hafan y Mor 3-0 with goals from Dylan and Logan (2). Another very good performance against Golden Grove was rewarded with a 3-1 victory with goals this time coming from Olly, Logan and Dylan T. The final game of the day was against St Florence – this game ended 1-1 with a goal from Olly and a fine penalty save from Theo.

After all seven games, this resulted in Stepaside finishing a very creditable second to Tenby in the league table. Mr Harries would like to thank all of the parents who helped to transport and support the team and would also like to congratulate the football team on their great performances throughout the tournament.

Cardiff Capers

Dosbarth Cadno have returned from their action packed residential in Cardiff.  Their three days were filled with activities including swimming, ice skating, and bowling alongside visits to the Royal Mint, Cardiff Castle and Big Pit.  Organised by Urdd this trip provides an opportunity for our pupils to participate in these recreational and educational activities and gain experience of being away from home.  It was an honour to take our pupils on this trip as their behaviour was excellent and they were great fun to be around.

Sporting Achievements Feb 2019

Pupils from Stepaside CP School have recently taken part in a number of National and Area sports competitions.

We were delighted with the performance of Kristina Ardern in the URDD National swimming gala held in Cardiff recently, where she won a bronze medal.  Congratulations Kristina.

Our football team recently won through to the regional round of a national football tournament hosted by Swansea City FC.  At the regional competition which was held in Llanelli we played teams from south west Wales.  Our team put in a great performance on the day but were beaten by some strong competition from other schools.

Led by former pupil Aled Waters, our Year 5 and 6 pupils trained in contact rugby in readiness for a Pembrokeshire six nations  tournament.  We represented Italy in the matches played in Carmarthen.  With only a few training sessions under our belt and only 3 club players amongst our team we put in a top performance and managed to win 4 of our 5 games.  This performance was down to the great training we had and brilliant team work.  We are looking forward to more sessions and working on our skills.
