Ten pupils from the sixth form recently attended an event in QE High School in Carmarthen, organised by Carmarthenshire County Council, to give them an insight into the difficult decisions facing a local authority. A major part of the day was dedicated to a group activity, where the council presented a number of proposals out for consultation to face budget cuts. The group acting as the Executive Board were led by Hannah Godfrey, and were complimented on their mature ideas and discussion during the morning’s tasks, and the professional manner in which they delivered their final presentation. With some significant changes proposed, it gave the group a thorough appreciation of the work and influence the people in these actual roles have on their communities. Mr D. Williams would like to thank the pupils for their exemplary contribution to the day.
