On Wednesday 13 December, Smith’s Wood Sports College held its first ever Year 7 disco to reward the hardest working and best behaved pupils who have made an exceptional start to life at Smith’s Wood Sports College.
According to the pupils, the night could not have been any better:
“Utterly fantastic” – Harry
“The disco was really fun! We all gathered around to have dance battles… Its all we did for two hours straight”- Rhys
“The dancing was great! The music was phenomenal and the food could not have been better!” – Liam
The evening included a live DJ, burger van and photobooth.
The Smith’s Wood Sports College Prefect team were treated to a Christmas dinner – complete with turkey and sprouts – to celebrate the work they have carried out since September.
On Friday 25th November, seven members of staff left to close down Penygeulan Cottage, in Wales for winter. After arriving in the pitch black, donning torches, walking down a beaten track, the cottage, even at night, was beautifully quaint.
The cottage houses a picturesque fireplace, adequate kitchen; including a range cooker, eating area and 2 large bedrooms, sleeping 18 in total.
The next morning, after a very comfortable sleep, and a homemade breakfast, (where everybody contributed) the cottage was given a good clean before we headed off, to what can only be described as some of the most stunning views ever seen. The weather was fantastic for this time of year and the views and sights that Mr Cushen took the party to were breath-taking.
The students who get to stay at the cottage and visit the sights are so privileged to be able to experience what the staff have this weekend.
Looking forward to next year, when we can do it all again.
