Pupils take Clwyd South AM Ken Skates on Brynteg Primary School tour

Assembly Member Ken Skates was given a warm welcome and a tour at a village school when he went along to meet its new pupil-run council.

Mr Skates, the Labour AM for Clwyd South, visited Brynteg Primary on Friday (November 14) after an invitation from headteacher Rachael Connell.

Mr Skates said: “I’d never been to the school before, so I was delighted to be invited along and was given an extremely warm welcome.

“It was great to meet the children, who gave me a very thorough and interesting tour. We also had a really good, engaging question and answer session where they asked me about my job and what I do.”

The school council is made up of pupils from Year 2 to Year 6 and has two representatives from each class, said Mrs Connell.

She added: “Ken’s visit was really worthwhile and the school council really enjoyed meeting and interviewing him. They were very interested to see how similar the voting process was for Assembly Members to the system we use in school to elect our own council. We would like to thank Ken for giving up his time.”

Later this week (Friday, November 21), Mr Skates will be staging another question and answer session at the Maelor School in Penley, with students from Ysgol Rhiwabon, Ysgol Dinas Bran in Llangollen and Coleg Cambria joining in.
