Visit of Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology
Glan-y-Môr pupils impressed Julie James, AM, Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology when she visited our brand new resource centre. We were proud to showcase their talents which have led to awards at national level. The activities they were involved in ranged from TeenTech, STEM, Lego Challenge and Welsh Baccalaureate using CAD for graphic design and Hwb (Wales’ own digital learning platform). We were very happy to welcome some pupils from our partner primary school Pembrey who will be working with us on an exciting transition project. Head Boy (Jai Thomas), Head Girl (Siona Nelson) and Chair of the School Council (Opel Tyler) escorted the Deputy Minister on the tour, presenting information about the new resource and the opportunities it has created for us. The event was attended by guests from Business in the Community, Careers Wales, Coleg Sir Gar and INA Schaeffler. It was planned to launch Business Class. Funded by the Welsh Assembly and delivered by Careers Wales, it will enable schools to create strategic partnerships with businesses for our mutual benefit.
We are delighted that our school is being recognised as a centre of excellence for innovation and creative design.
