THE outstanding achievement of a pupil at Ysgol Bro Gwaun has been recognised with a special cup.

Cerys Grant received the Cwpan Hiraeth which was donated by Captain Brian Thomas last year.

Captain Thomas, a former pupil of the school, presented the cup at assembly on June 30 to commend her devoted support and care for her mother throughout the year while continuing her studies and attendance at Ysgol Bro Gwaun.

Captain Thomas motivated other pupils by explaining that the cup is awarded to any pupil from any year and from any form; and then described examples of outstanding achievements that each pupil can achieve, to be the holder of the Cwpan Hiraeth in the years to come.

Acting headteacher James Durbridge, along with all the staff and pupils expressed their congratulations to Cerys Grant.
