School’s annual awards ceremony
YSGOL Dyffryn Conwy recently held its annual Awards Ceremony.
Guest speaker Sean Taylor inspired the audience with tales of his successes and the experiences that have led him to his various business ventures within the Conwy Valley and beyond.
Pupils were awarded for academic success in their end of key stage three, GCSE, AS and A Level results. Recipients included Tomos Arfon who received an award from the Rotary for his excellent 8A* and 3As at GCSE; Aron Kirkman and Viktor Hewitt who both won the Dr Harold Williams award for their excellent A level results this summer. Amongst the school’s guests and sponsors on the evening were Mr Richard Howes and Mr Graham St John-Gillan from Dyffryn Conwy Rotary Club, the Mayor of Llanrwst, Mr Nelson Herr and Mr Edgar Jones representing the Llanrwst Historical Society.
The evening’s Special Recognition award went to the school’s unique and talented Equestrian Club following their huge success at Bury Farm last summer.
The evening was also an opportunity to launch the school’s Rugby Development Officer post which has been developed in partnership with the WRU, Nant Conwy Rugby Club and sponsors Zip World.
