5x60 in Dyffryn Teifi
5x60 is about getting active for at least 60 minutes, 5 times a week, hence the title.....5x60!
But don't worry, it doesn't have to be all at once! A 10 minute walk to school, a 20 minute 5x60 activity at lunch time and half-hour bike ride or swim after school will do.
5x60 is all about having fun and trying out new things with the aim of getting more young people active. And this site is going to tell you all you'll need to know about what 5x60 activities are going on in Dyffryn Teifi comprehensive school.
Like how the students have the opportunity to try new activities like Mountain Biking, Dodgeball, Cricket or Clog Dancing...
And how they can do it in school at lunchtime, after school or during the holidays. Any time!
- 5x60 Football fixtures
There is a Boys football tournament this term, with the Boys in Years 7+8 competing on Monday 3rd December in Synod Inn on the astro turf. This is a warm-up tournament for the Youth Events Wales competitions in the Easter holidays, in which the school will have boys and girls teams competing.
- YEW Dance Competition
The YEW Dance competition returns this year following a very popular competition last April. The competition takes place on Tuesday 18th December in Lampeter Arts Hall from 4.00 - 6.30pm and dancers from all over Ceredigion will be competing in order to secure their place in the All-Wales Finals in May. Winners at last years' event went on to represent Ceredigion at the All-Wales Finals day in Newton in May.
Good luck to all pupils representing 5x60 teams this term!
