Mae tîm o fyfyrwyr ILS Coleg Gŵyr Abertawe wedi ennill medal Efydd yn y gystadleuaeth Sgiliau Cynhwysol (Y Cyfryngau) a gynhaliwyd yn ddiweddar yng Ngholeg y Cymoedd, Nantgarw.

Roedd Connor Maddick, Megan Bevan a Courtney Collins wedi ffilmio, cynhyrchu a golygu ffilm ddwy funud yn seiliedig ar thema ramantus Santes Dwynwen.

Nid yn unig roedd y broses o wneud y ffilm wedi rhoi eu doniau creadigol, technegol a galwedigaethol ar brawf ond roedd hefyd wedi rhoi cyfle gwych iddynt gynrychioli Coleg Gŵyr Abertawe mewn cystadleuaeth genedlaethol.
