Maesteg Comprehensive School Annual Spring Concert 2014

Our endlessly talented pupils wowed a packed audience of parents, staff, governors and guests including the deputy mayor of Bridgend on Tuesday evening. The Music department in Maesteg School continues to
go from strength to strength and we must now have one of the largest school orchestra’s in the country! For the very first time one of our talented Year 12 students, Ewan Thomas, conducted the orchestra – Ewan is multi-talented and currently applying to Oxbridge
– we would like to wish him well for the bright future he has in front of him, our loss will certainly be their gain! A credit to the school is the choir consisting of large numbers of staff and students – they sang theme tunes to Phantom of the Opera and
blew away the audience with their voices.

GSUS Live project

This week KS3 pupils had the opportunity to visit the GSUS Live project with Mr and Mrs Young. Pupils had the opportunity to explore the idea of rejection, fear and forgiveness through the media of 3D video, music and ICT based activities. All pupils were impeccably behaved and took away some fantastic ideas to help others.




Our keen Year 7 Photography club members have been busy this term preparing a portfolio of images for the Rotary International Young Photographer competition. Their brief was to submit three images
and a mission statement which interpreted the theme of ‘People.’ We had some very imaginative interpretations of this theme and I was delighted with the standard of all entries. The winning entries will now go on to the District and National finals to be judged
at the next stage of the competition. I would like wish them all the best for this. Professional Photographer Mr Nigel Nicholas visited school this week to announce the winners and I would like to congratulate the following;

Kaci Stolzenburg – 1st Place

Ellie Fry – 2nd Place

Georgia Cook – 3rd Place
