Representatives of our school council recently went on a visit to the Senedd in Cardiff . They met with former First Minister for Wales, Carwyn Jones, who held an interesting question and answer session with the pupils who had attended from a number of Llanelli schools. Following that session, the pupils were involved in two live debates led by Lee Waters AM and some excellent arguments were put forward by the students involved. Pupils’ beliefs and opinions were challenged and some even changed their minds on the topic discussed! The afternoon included a careers’ advice talk followed by another question and answer session and a tour around the Senedd building. A very interesting experience for all pupils involved as they learnt to express themselves openly and saw how tensions can arise from discussions and debates, even in a democratic society.
