An MS was “delighted” to visit a secondary school in Conwy county to help pupils engage in politics and develop their civic awareness.
North Wales regional Senedd Member, Llyr Gruffydd visited Ysgol Dyffryn Conwy in Llanrwst as part of their end of year activities week.
The Plaid Cymru politician took part in a session for year 7 pupils, educating them on the role and functions of the Senedd.
The pupils had the opportunity to pose their questions to the shadow minister on rural affairs, with topics including the devolution of further powers to Wales, farming support and access for young people to public transport.
After his visit Mr Gruffydd said: “As a Member of the Senedd representing the Conwy Valley I was delighted to be able to speak directly with local young people about the issues that are of concern to them.
“Their thoughtful and impressive questions clearly demonstrated that young people are eager to be engaged in politics, and that they have a real interest in the work of the Senedd given its direct impact on so many aspects of their lives.
“Thank you to Year 7 pupils at Ysgol Dyffryn Conwy for a the warm welcome and for speaking up and sharing their opinions on the issues of the day.”
The visit was organised as part of the Senedd’s Education Outreach Service.
