PEMBROKE’S Golden Grove School-Ysgol Gelli Aur pupils have had triumphs with trumpets, been blinded by science, and enjoyed sporting success.

School musicians recently performed at the Valero Pembrokeshire Music Awards.

Marilla was crowned the overall winner of the competition after successes in the piano, violin and trumpet.

There were successes to in the open drum kit competition, Grade 3 Clarinet and Grade 3 Trumpet.

Pupils throughout the school celebrated National Science Week with Ben Williams, who delivered a workshop on Forces. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and were engaged throughout.

Amongst the sessions they learned about how our power station works. Elsewhere around the school there were sessions with Lego, Beebots and parachute making.

A team of pupils travelled to Carmarthen to take part in the Dyfed Schools Cross Country competition. A fantastic effort all round on a wet and heavy course.

There were some excellent performances with Connie from the Year 3 Girls and Finley from Year 6 Boys gaining top ten placements.

A team of girls travelled to Tenby to take part in a Tag Rugby event. The team gave creditable performances and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Head teacher Andy Williams said: “The past few weeks have demonstrated the variety of activities our pupils engage in as a part of their development as individuals, and as part of a team.”

He paid a special tribute to the Pembrokeshire Music Service for all the work they do with the young musicians from school and thanked the parents for their support, particularly in the transportation of the pupils to and from Carmarthen.
