Our Student Council, comprising of two nominated pupils from each year group plus the Year 11 Senior Prefects, have been working actively to resolve some of the issues and concerns raised by their peers. Successes this year include the Healthy Salad Bar which is proving more popular than any other counter in the Canteen as well as promoting healthy eating.
Thanks again to "nagging" from the council, 30 benches funded by Communities First and assembled by Mr R Davies and Mr S Blackmore have been placed in and around the school for pupils to enjoy.
The student council supported by Mrs K. Davies and Mrs S. Hollister was also successful in bidding for a £700 Healthy Schools grant to improve the fitness level of our pupils.
School Bench DonatedChildren and parents gathered for a remembrance service in memory of pupil Shannon Thomas. Headteacher Mrs Eunice Walters paid a touching tribute to Shannon. She said "This is a very special day for a very special person" Rev Paul Harris of Rehoboth Church then asked all pupils to think of something that Shannon liked, such as singing, helping others, dancing and Scooby Doo. Everyone sang Shannons favourite hymn, He's got the whole world in His hands. The service concluded by Mrs Walters saying "Shannon was very much missed by us all in her school family". Mr and Mrs Thomas then joined the Head Boy and Head girl of Cwrt Sart, who represented the School Council, who had decided to donate a bench to the garden Brynhyryd are going to create in memory of Shannon.

LEADING CWRT SART INTO THE FUTURE
I feel privileged to be Headteacher of such a good school as Cwrt Sart which, by Government criteria, is now benchmarked as a Group 1 school. Our aim is to send our pupils on their journey through life with a healthy body and mind and a first class attitude towards learning. In achieving this, I would like to thank the staff for their commitment and huge dedication, the Parents for their support and expectations, the School Governors for their continued support and, not least, the Pupils for their hard work and enthusiasm. Challenges lay ahead - in 2008 the new National Curriculum will reflect the fact that people will no longer be having a lob for life but will be expected to change jobs and keep up with the pace of modern technology. This means that pupils will need to leave school with skills for "Life Long Learning" and Cwrt Sart is already working hard to develop a "skills based" curriculum in order to give our pupils a great start in life. I have enjoyed being part of a dedicated team and I am proud to be able to say that I am Headteacher of one of the best schools in Wales.
