Making up for a snow day!

Local youngsters have been special guests for a tour of 10, Downing Street after snow ruined their original plans back in March.

The staff and pupils of Ysgol Pontrobert were joined by local MP, Glyn Davies, for a visit to one of the most famous homes in the world, two months after their original St David’s Day invitation was ruined by the weather.

Glyn welcomed the School to Westminster and joined them on their tour where they were given privileged access, including sitting around the famous Government ‘Cabinet’ table for a discussion about what new laws they would like to see.

“It was great to be able to welcome pupils and teachers from Ysgol Pontrobert to Westminster last week, and to join them on their special tour of Number 10 Downing St,” said Glyn.

“The pupils very much enjoyed the tour and the access to the ‘corridors of power’. They even held their own Cabinet meeting around the Cabinet table, where they suggested several new laws, including a new law for school to finish an hour earlier every day! I’m not sure that their Headteacher Mrs Parry agreed with this!

“Ysgol Pontrobert is a comparatively small rural school but has consistently achieved excellent Estyn inspection ratings. It is a Welsh medium school, which plays a crucial role within its local community. I probably enjoyed the visit more than the School!”
