Today the School Council and the Eco-committee went to the Senedd building in Cardiff Bay to learn all about the Welsh assembly government and the decisions they make.
We were given a tour of the building and a chance to talk to Mick Antoniw AM our local representative at the Welsh assembly.
The children had lots of excellent questions and asked about the role of the assembly, laws that had been passed and even asked about cuts to the music service.
We were then given a tour of the committee rooms.
Our guide Gareth explained how the Senedd building is one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in Wales with energy saving lights, rain water collection for the toilets and even ground source heated water to heat the whole building. Lots of ideas for our Eco-committee to use back in School!
A huge thank you to the staff at the Senedd for making us feel welcome, to Mick Antoniw AM for giving up his time to come to speak to us and especially to our guide Gareth who was knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic and explained everything brilliantly for all the different aged children to understand clearly.
Last of all a big thank you to all the children who were polite, well-mannered, full of good questions and really represented Tonysguboriau Primary School excellently today. Mr. Hurford and I were very pleased with all of you. Well done!
