Safer Internet Day 2018
6th February saw the Safer Internet Day campaign roll out across the world, with the aim to help make children and young people more aware of the dangers that they can face online.
We delivered sessions in schools across South Wales, outlining the importance of internet awareness and giving pupils from a number of schools an insight into how the internet can benefit them, but also be unsafe.
Cardiff City A & B Futsal sides face off at House of Sport
Fresh from their EFL Trust Futsal Cup draw, our A and B Futsal teams went head-to-head in the South West National League at House of Sport.
The A side eventually ran out 9-2 winners, with Jyrell Rahman scoring six of the nine goals. The victory sees the Bluebirds keep the pressure on South Wales neighbours and league leaders Newport County.

As part of the weekly Walking Football sessions we run at House of Sport every Thursday, our Level Two and Three BTEC Sport learners challenged our Walking Football team to a match.
As well as a great contest, the students got a taste of the sport and gave them more of an insight to assist them when refereeing tournaments in the future.
