Four Year 10 students had an eventful and exciting start to this week! Poppy Park, Cerys Williams, Milly Evans and Megan Thomas were our First Give winners last term, when Kirsty Williams AM, visited to judge our First Give Competition. As a result, the students were invited to showcase the excellent work they did for their chosen charity, SNAP Cymru.
The celebration event took place in the Mulberry Academy in London, which provided a superb arena for all the exhibitors from Wales and across the UK, to showcase their support for their charities.
After an overnight stay in Pax Lodge, World Guide Association accommodation, the students enjoyed a fantastic trip across London to visit The Houses of Parliament and meet with our local MP, Jane Dodds. Jane very kindly gave us an ‘out of bounds’ tour around the beautiful and impressive, Parliament buildings. It was wonderful to meet with Jane and discuss important political issues; the students had plenty of questions for her! We look forward to welcoming Jane to Crickhowell High School in the near future.
As ever, our students were impeccably behaved, polite and an absolute pleasure to be with during the trip!
A huge thanks to all involved in supporting us to attend and giving our students such wonderful experiences.
Diolch yn fawr iawn
