Exciting, entertaining and emphatic Eirias
Report by Mr Wilkinson
After victories over Ysgol y Berwyn, Ysgol Friars and Ysgol David Hughes in previous rounds our senior rugby team arrived at Caernarfon RFC on a calm but overcast night to play in the final of the Eryri Plate. Our opponents were Ysgol Bro Hyddgen from Machynlleth, new opponents who had dispatched Ysgol John Bright’s comfortably in their semi-final.
Year 11 and Year 12 students discovered all about a ‘life on the open seas’ during a talk from David Hewett of the Merchant Navy. David is now fully qualified as a merchant mariner through Chiltern Maritime Ltd and was able to pass on his experiences or working, training and gaining higher level qualifications through the merchant navy – everything from engineering work on deck to simulating a fire emergency situation.
