Llantwit pupils win Gold  

 

Llantwit pupils who have completed bronze, silver and gold awards in leadership this year were awarded in a special presentation assembly this week. The school was delighted that the Lions club were able to sponsor the ceremony and provide trophies for the pupils to mark their achievement in completing their recent expedition.  Liz Evans, President, Llantwit Major & Cowbridge Lions and Byron Evans, Youth Officer attended the assembly to present the awards.

Dan Shooter, Operations Manager at MPCT Skills Academy made the following comments about the learners’ performance in their challenging expedition: 

“Just wanted to express my praise for every learner who attended Op Sandy Dune this week. I was extremely impressed with their politeness, willingness to learn and determination. They all got stuck into the activities and embraced the military experience. I overheard one comment from a learner to another saying ‘I never thought I could have done half the stuff I have done on these two days’, this I think was the case for many. They really got stuck into the exercise and the teamwork was evident throughout. A few sore feet and tired learners at the end which was expected considering how much they achieved in the two days. 

Once again I can’t praise highly enough the conduct and effort that the learners displayed throughout. All the feedback from the instructors was extremely positive and they were impressed particularly with the determination on many of the arduous activities. “ 

The pupil feedback on their pilot programme was excellent, and will be used to continue to inform the planning in the partnership between the Military preparation college and the school.
