Here are some photos from December 23rd - members of Ser y Byd Netball team were given the opportunity to watch Llanelli Reds play a home game against Bala. Llanelli Reds kindly gave our pupils free entry and provided them with free food and refreshments and the pupils were able to watch the game from the Media Suite. At Half Time the Chairperson of Llanelli Reds donated the pupils with a cheque for £100 for the Ser y Byd players.
Pupils from School have been selected to play for Ser y Byd in the Llanelli Winter League; so far they have played against Pink Ribbons and Merlins have won both games!
Here's a photo of Ser y Byd with Venus after one of their recent games in Llanelli Netball League.
The Ser y Byd annual presentation was on 11th May at the Selwyn Samuel Centre;every pupil had a certificate and medal - Josh Price won the Best Player Award.
Here's the link to the Llanelli online article about the event:
Ser y byd went on a trip to the National Sports Centre for Wales on Monday 14th May to watch the Celtic Dragons play Loughborough Lightning (with a pitstop in "Harvester" on the way).

Congratulations to Best Players: Roger from Coleshill and Kieran from Heol Goffa; they received their awards from Denise, the Chairwoman of Llanelli Netball League, and Sarah the CEO of Welsh Netball
In 2010 we started netball training in Ysgol Heol Goffa with a total of seven or eight players, usually during a PE session or during lunch breaks. Over the years pupils interest has grown and we have progressed to having an allocation at Llanelli Leisure Centre every Friday for training and now have a total of eighteen players.
Interest has grown and recently we have joined with clients and staff at Coleshill adult training centre to form a joint club of unisex members. Many past pupils have remained members of the club from leaving Ysgol Heol Goffa through transition to adult services.
We now have 40 members regularly trainingand they look forward to attending sessions, meeting new and old friends, working together as part of a team. Players have benefited greatly from skills learned in our sessions– confidence building, self-esteem, including seeing to their personal care.
We welcome any new players above the age of thirteen to join our club and help our club expand and grow.
