In September, Jayden Sudbury, Joshua King, Joey Thomas, Joshua Evans, Jakob Evans, Kieran Thomas, Rhys Evans along with Mrs Botticelli and Charlotte Coombes  from Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn took part in a Fire fighter for a day course at Newcastle Emlyn fire station.

The group took part in various activities that gave them a taste of what a fire fighters job would be like. They did squad drills, hose drills, branch handling, ladder drills, health and safety as well as team building and problem solving. Some time was also spent in the classroom looking at anti-social behaviour and its effect on the community. At the end of the day the group completed a demonstration for visitors and then a presentation of their certificates. They all worked very well as a team and also individually. Fantastic effort.
