GCSE students display their talents at the WJEC Innovations Awards 2016.

Mrs Pugh was proud to accompany Year 12 pupils to the Swalec stadium this week to view their GCSE coursework on display. Hannah McKeown and Katie Owens studied GCSE Textiles technology where they gained excellent B grades in the summer. Mrs Pugh decided to enter work from Mountain Ash Comprehensive when she saw the competition on the WJEC website.' I was overwhelmed this year once again with the creativity from students at MACS'. The design brief was to design and make a fancy dress costume for a young child along with a 15 page folio. The standard of work was extremely high and I was so proud when the pupils' work was selected to be displayed. What an achievement! With only 30 pieces of GCSE work from the whole of the country on display we have had 2 candidates chosen!! Their fancy dress costumes were made to a very professional level showing a variety of techniques!

The visit to the exhibition showed the high standards of work at GCSE and A LEVEL. I was so proud of our creative pieces displayed beautifully!! An email received this week has confirmed that both Hannah's and Katie's work will also be on display in Bangor. A winner is yet to be announced... Fingers crossed!!!
