Pupils at Pen y Dre High School have won the First Give UK prize for 2018.
First Give UK is a charity that helps young people give their time and talent to improve their communities.
Pupils in Year 9 spent weeks preparing their presentations for the judges. The final groups pitched to win £1000 for their chosen charities: DART, Cancer Aid Merthyr Tydfil, Merthyr Mind and Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team (CBMRT).
Organised by Mrs Rees in the English Faculty, our Year 9 winners raised over £1000.00 for Brecon Beacons Mountain Rescue!
Cake sales, ice cream sales and other events were held to reach this incredible figue. Our Year 9 winners Chloe and Ellie and here accompanied by Mayor and Governor Mr Clive Tovey, and Lynne Sheehy from our business partner Legal and General.
