Rhiw Syr Dafydd Primary School is the first school in Wales to host the Welsh Open Rubik’s Cube Championships.
Organised by the World Cube Association, the competition will see competitors solve mechanical puzzles that are operated by twisting groups of pieces, commonly known as 'twisty puzzles'.
The Oakdale based Primary School is just one of many host venues across the world who will welcome 75 competitors from 9 countries later this month on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th of January.
The day promises to be action packed with nail biting competitions. Entry is charged at £10.
Headteacher Mr George said, “We are thrilled to be hosting this prestigious world competition. The pupils are very excited and have been learning about the skill involved to solve these tricky puzzles.&;
