On Wednesday, 19th December 2012, Wicid Sub Editor Rhys and I attended the Ysgol Gyfun Cymer Rhondda’s E3+ Awards Ceremony held at the school. The host for the evening was Cymer’s E3+ Co-ordinator Sarah Stone. Our roles for the evening were to attend and review the awards ceremony and also photograph all award winners on the stage.
Below you will see the script and all award winners and categories of the evening.
Sarah: Good evening and welcome to our first E3+ awards presentation evening, I would like to thank you all for coming, and it is a real pleasure to see so many faces here.
I and Gillian would like to say how rewarding it has been to work with so many students on the E3+ programme this year, and we have had the best time.
So with no further ado – let’s move on to presenting the students with the awards for their hard work and efforts to all of the after school clubs, holiday activities and residential weekends.

Congratulations to all award winners that evening and keep it up in the future. At the end of the ceremony the students of the dance award performed a routine of dance moves and wowed the audience. A massive well done goes to the girls for getting up there an busting some moves.
A special thanks must be given to the E3+ co-ordinator, Sarah Stone, for her work. We also extend our thanks to the parents who turned up to watch the awards for celebrating the young peoples’ success with us.
All family and friends were treated to a festive buffet at the end of the ceremony which was lovely.
