Race for Life - £ 1611.86

On Friday 30Th September we participated in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Year 11 CoPE students baked a range of very tasty treats that we were able to enjoy at break time while raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

 

Innovation Exhibition at Swalec Stadium, Cardiff

The Design Technology department took 38 students from years 10 to 13 to visit the Design Technology Innovation exhibition at the Swalec Stadium, Cardiff. The exhibition shows some of the most innovative projects from GCSE, AS and A level Design Technology from last year. This gives the students an excellent opportunity to gather ideas, look at the standard of work possible and mix with other design technology students from around Wales.

 

Cymerodd yr adran Dylunio a Thechnoleg 38 o fyfyrwyr o flynyddoedd 10 i 13 i ymweld â'r arddangosfa Arloesedd Dylunio aThechnoleg yn Stadiwm Swalec, Caerdydd. Mae'r arddangosfa yn dangos rhai o'r prosiectau mwyaf arloesol o TGAU, UG a Safon Uwch Dylunio a Thechnoleg o llynedd. Mae hyn yn rhoi cyfle gwych i gasglu syniadau, edrych ar safon y gwaith posibl a chymysgu gyda myfyrwyr dylunio a thechnoleg arall o Gymru.
