Ernest Wong – an International Boarder who joined St. Michael’s in September this year has made the school proud by winning a Gold Medal in the recent Welsh Youth Epee Fencing competition.
Ernest took up fencing classes in his home city of Hong Kong and it was an activity that he was keen to continue with. Supported by his Host family (Mrs Kim Earle) and our Boarding Manager (Ms Gidman), Ernest took the opportunity to join the local Celtic Sword Club.
He attends the club every Thursday evening and was recently entered for the U16 Welsh Youth Event in which he successfully gained first place and a Gold Medal.
The school is very proud of his success and the example he sets for other boarders, as he shows there is no reason why students shouldn’t get involved in local activities and continue to pursue an interest outside of school. We hope to see Ernest continue to excel in his chosen sport.
