walesbaleTHE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION OF WALES will be hosting a special event for Welsh football fans in Cardiff to celebrate the achievements of Chris Coleman’s squad and staff following EURO 2016.

It will take place at Cardiff City Stadium on Friday (Jul 8) and start at 5.15pm (turnstiles open at 5pm for the public)

After qualifying for a first major tournament since 1958, Wales finished top of their group that included England, Slovakia and Russia before going on to reach the semi-finals.

The support both in France and back on home soil has been nothing short of remarkable and this event gives the players and supporters the chance to celebrate together.

There will be entertainment on stage from 5.15pm – including music from Manic Street Preachers – while the players and staff presentation will begin at 6.45pm.

Immediately prior to the event there will also be a celebratory open top bus tour for the team from the city centre for the public to show their appreciation. This is due to start at Cardiff Castle at 4pm and ends at Cardiff City Stadium at 5.30pm – further details regarding the route will be published by the end of today (Jul 7).

FAW Chief Executive Jonathan Ford said: “We feel this event is a great way of everyone celebrating what has been a historic period for Welsh football.

“The scenes we have seen both at home and over in France have been fantastic and we hope that our passionate supporters can enjoy another moment with the players to end a memorable few weeks.”

There will be live coverage of this momentous occasion as BBC Wales follows the homecoming celebrations every step of the way. Extensive coverage of the team’s arrival back in Wales, as well as the Fans’ Homecoming Show, will be available on TV, radio and online in English and in Welsh.

St. Michaels School celebrates excellent A-Level results

St. Michael’s pupils with their A-Level results

ST. MICHAEL’S School, Llanelli, is extremely pleased to announce another year of successful A-Level results, with 80.2% of all grades awarded either an A* or A grade.

The vast majority of pupils have earned a place at their chosen university to study courses such as Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Economics.

This is the first year that traditional exams have resumed since the Covid-19 pandemic began with the majority of lessons in the first part of the A-Level being delivered online rather than in a classroom environment. This makes the results even more of an achievement considering the circumstances.

Headmaster Mr Benson Ferrari said: “We offer our sincere congratulations to our outgoing Year 13 class on the publication of their A-Level results, demonstrating that our pupils have worked so hard despite the challenges of returning to a conventional assessment approach.

“They approached the situation with resilience and dedication, which has resulted in grades that are truly representative of their ability.  I am confident that they will all go onto achieve great things at university and in their working lives.  

“We wish them the best as they move to this new and exciting stage of their education.  The preparation which St. Michael’s has provided will be built upon, along with our values and principles providing a lasting framework to tackle the challenges ahead.”

In 2020, St. Michael’s School was awarded The Sunday Times Welsh Independent School of the Decade and this was in part due to the excellent exam results that the school receives each year. 

St. Michael’s was also ranked 13th in The Times 2019 Co Ed League Table for UK Independent Schools, which was the last time that the results were published. The school hopes that this year’s results will continue to secure their place in the 2022 league table which will be published later this year.

Scheme to enhance the town of Tregaron for the National Eisteddfod

Published

on

THE REGENERATING Rural Towns scheme run by the Cynnal y Cardi LEADER programme has been supporting Tregaron Town Council with a series of marketing techniques and installations to promote and enhance Tregaron in preparation for the historic and cultural event, the National Eisteddfod of Wales 2022.

This work acted as a legacy to the National Eisteddfod at Tregaron following the influx of thousands of people to the town daily for the duration of the festival and subsequently to the surrounding rural communities and local sites of interest.

A wide range of installations could be seen in Tregaron during the Eisteddfod following town branding design work, which included a giant deckchair, lamp post flags, banners, bunting, tiered flower planters, benches & picnic tables, monument conservation improvements, and a prominent Tregaron sign overlooking the ‘Maes’. Many of these features will remain in place for the summer months and can be utilised by the town in the future. Further town development work is due to commence to maintain and enhance the attractiveness and vibrancy of the town.
