Dyfodol disglair i ddisgyblion Ysgol Gymaeg Bro Morgannwg.
Mae pump disgybl dawnus a thalentog yr ysgol wedi sicrhau llefydd i astudio mewn prifysgolion a cholegau o'r radd flaenaf.
Mae Brennig Davies wedi cael cynnig lle i astudio Saesneg yng Ngholeg Mansfield, Rhydychen. Ymgeisiodd ar gyfer y cwrs hwn gan ei fod yn teimlo'n angerddol iawn am y pwnc ac am fod ganddo dalent am ysgrifennu creadigol a allai arwain at yrfa fel awdur. Mae Nia Brown hefyd wedi cael cynnig lle i astudio Saesneg yn Rhydychen. Roedd ei chyfweliad a'r tiwtoriaid wedi creu argraff arni ac mae hi'n gyffrous ei bod wedi cael ei derbyn astudio mewn cyfadran sy'n cynnig un o'r cyrsiau iaith a llenyddiaeth Saesneg ehangaf yn y wlad. Edrycha Brennig a Nia ymlaen at astudio yn y Brifysgol arbennig hon.
Mae Manon William wedi cael cynnig lle yng Ngholeg Murray Edwards, Caergrawnt i ddilyn gradd yn Astudiaethau Eingl Sacsonaidd, Llychlynaidd a Cheltaidd y flwyddyn nesaf. Mae gan Manon ddiddordeb byw mewn Astudiaethau Celtaidd ac yn edrycha ymlaen at astudio'r pwnc hwn mewn manylder y flwyddyn nesaf.
Mae Manon Ogwen Parry, bob amser wedi mwynhau ac wedi rhagori wrth berfformio. Cam naturiol iddi hi felly oedd ceisio am le yn Ysgol Gerdd a Drama y Guildhall yn Llundain, sef un o'r deg sefydliad gorau ar gyfer perfformio yn y byd. Mae hi’n gobeithio y bydd ei hamser yn y Guildhall yn caniatáu iddi wiredu ei dyhead o fod yn gantores opera proffesiynol.
Daeth breuddwyd Llinos Jones yn realiti pan dderbyniodd lythyr yn cadarnhau ei bod hi wedi cael cynnig ysgoloriaeth a lle i astudio mewn conservatoire blaenllaw, sef Y Royal Northern College of Music. Mae cerddoriaeth yn meddwl popeth iddi ac felly mae hi’n awyddus iawn i ddechrau ei hyfforddiant clasurol ym mis Hydref.
Mae pob un o'r disgyblion wedi rhagori yn eu hastudiaethau a thu hwnt yn yr ysgol ac heb os, maent wedi bod yn gaffaeliad i’r ysgol. Rydym yn falch iawn o'u llwyddiant diweddar a dymunwn yn dda iddynt yn y misoedd i ddod wrth astudio ar gyfer eu harholiadau Safon Uwch.
A bright future for pupils at Ysgol Gymaeg Bro Morgannwg pupils.
Five Gifted and Talented students from Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Morgannwg have been successful in securing offers to study at top universities and colleges.
Brennig Davies has been offered a place to study English at Mansfield College Oxford. He applied for this particular course as he feels very passionate about the subject and has a talent for creative writing and he would like to follow a career as an author. Nia Brown has also been offered a place to study English at Oxford. She enjoyed her interview and thought very highly of the tutors that she met on the day. The Oxford English Faculty is the largest English department in Britain offering one of the broadest English Language and Literature courses in the country. Brennig and Nia are looking forward to studying in this very prestigious university.
Manon William has been offered a place at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge to study Anglo Saxon, Norse and Celtic Studies next year. Manon has always had an interest in Celtic studies and she is looking forward to studying this subject in depth next year.
Manon Ogwen Parry has always enjoyed and has excelled at performing. Her natural progression was to try for a place at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, one of the top ten institutions for performing arts in the world. She hopes that her time at the Guildhall will allow her to fulfil her aspirations of becoming a professional opera singer.
Llinos Jones’ dream came true when she received a letter confirming that she had been offered a place and a scholarship at The Royal Northern College of Music which is a leading conservatoire and performance venue. She lives and breathes music and she is very eager to start her classical training in October.

At Ysgol Bro Morgannwg, Rhodri Dafydd Miller’s memorial trophy has been awarded for a second year
Rhodri was an A* maths student studying towards his A-Levels when he tragically died in a car crash.
His family have created the award in his memory, and they said:?“Mathematics is often a subject overlooked when an award is given out. However, it is in its own right a very complex subject to study and achieve good grades.
“Elen Dafydd (year-13) was presented with this trophy on her final day of school by Rhodri’s younger brother Iestyn, who spoke of the importance of life and also how important it is to him that Rhodri, Alesha and Corey should be remembered for their kind and caring personalities, that touched on everybody’s lives for those lucky enough to have known them.
“Mr Stephens remembers Rhodri for his cool, laid back attitude, able to mix with students of all abilities, in and out of the classroom. This was a key factor in making his decision to elect Elen Dafydd to be presented with this award.
“Elen Dafydd is going on to study economics at London University. Therefore her prize of £250 received from Dave and Jo (parents of Rhodri) and patrons of the King William, in recognition of all her hard work and effort in maths during her sixth form studies, will hopefuly help a little towards her expenses.
“We, as a family would like to thank Ysgol Bro Morgannwg for their support in allowing this trophy to be presented each year in memory of Rhodri, which hopefully will encourage students to work that little bit harder!”
