Congratulations to Ella and Seren of year 10 who won second prize in the National Oxplore Big Question Competition run in conjunction with the University of Oxford and secondary schools across the country. Pupils from schools nationwide were invited to submit a thought provoking question as part of the University’s Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach Program run by Mrs S. Burgess in Brynteg. The girl’s successful question was ‘Is the population of people with mental health issues increasing? If so, why is this?’ The question impressed the judging panel who were delighted with the high standard of questions received from all schools.
The girls are pictured each receiving their £20 book token award from Mrs Burgess. Well done to both girls!
