Four Year 10 students from Crickhowell High School had an eventful and exciting start to this week! Poppy Park, Cerys Williams, Milly Evans and Megan Thomas were First Give winners last term, when Education Minister Kirsty Williams AM, visited to judge the 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 their local MP, Jane Dodds and share their experiences and information on SNAP Cymru. Jane very kindly gave them an ‘out of bounds’ tour around the beautiful and impressive, Parliament buildings. It was wonderful for them to meet with Jane and discuss important political issues; the students had plenty of questions for her! The school are now looking forward to welcoming Jane to Crickhowell High School in the near future.
A huge thanks to all involved in choosing SNAP Cymru as their charity – we were delighted that they rose awareness of our work and that the students had such a wonderful experience. Thanks also to Carron Goold and other staff at Crickhowell High School for their support. Well done girls – Diolch yn fawr iawn
