We’ve all been impacted by coronavirus in a range of different ways including our children and young people. It was great to head back to my old school, St Richard Gwyn, last Friday and meet with 6th form students to talk about my role as their MS.
There were some brilliant questions around the impact of coronavirus, university funding and supporting the LGBTQ+ community, as well as the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing. I also had the chance to catch up with the Headteacher and Assistant Headteacher about how the school continues to adapt to coronavirus and to pass on my thanks to all the staff for their continued hard work.
A range of schools across the constituency have been learning more about the work of the Senedd through virtual visits with the education team and this week I met with pupils from Ysgol Bryn Coch as they visited the Senedd.
As the Senedd is in recess I took the opportunity to show them around the committee rooms and Senedd Siambr, something not usually included in a standard tour!
