Bridgend Festival of Learning / Gwyl Dysgu Pen y Bont
During this week Bridgend has held it's first Festival of Learning. There has been a vast programme of sharing excellent practice between schools which has involved teachers, headteachers and education professionals. Today it was the turn of the learners with two children from every School Council coming together to share their learning and discuss issues about wellbeing for young learners in Bridgend.
Croesty Primary School had a stand which explained how our meaningful work programme operates. Our stand was very popular - it seems our meaningful work programme is a little unique and lots of schools seem very keen to follow from our example. Our two School Councillors were excellent presenters and greatly impressed Professor Sally Holland the Children's Commissioner for Wales explaining how our meaningful work programme supports wellbeing within our school.
