Carrog School was awarded the Star School prize for the third time in the Art Competition at the Llangollen Pavilion. All the children had been busy creating models and pictures based on the Africa theme. The school received a cheque for £100 and Eimear, Chloe and Sioned were awarded individual prizes for their work. The Art work was displayed in the Village Hall on Wednesday November 2nd to raise funds for the Urdd Eisteddfod.

The school collected £150 for the Goat for Africa appeal. The children took part in the Harvest Festival in church and covered card goats with coins. Money raised at the Cinderella play was also donated to the Goat Appeal.

The children took part in a Harvest Service in the Methodist chapel where they sang and recited in Welsh.

The boys football team took part in the inter school festival and played 8 games against neighboring schools.
