MS welcomes ‘eager’ Wrexham pupils to the Senedd

A MEMBER of the Senedd has welcomed “eager” pupils from two schools in Wrexham county to the Senedd where they learned about Welsh democracy.

Llŷr Gruffydd, who represents North Wales in the Senedd, gave from pupils Ysgol Bryn Tabor, in Coedpoeth and Ysgol Bro Alun, in Gwersyllt, a guided tour of the Welsh Parliament.

The Plaid Cymru politician, who is also his party’s Shadow Minister for Rural Affairs, spoke with the young people about how the Senedd works and about his role fighting on behalf of constituents and scrutinising the work of the Welsh Government. 

Llŷr Gruffydd said: “It was great to speak with pupils from Ysgol Bryn Tabor and Ysgol Bro Alun, during their visit to the Senedd so they could learn about the work that goes on here.

“They were very eager to find out how democracy works in Wales and they asked a lot of thoughtful, intelligent and incisive questions.

“They clearly demonstrated that young people want to be engaged in politics, so they can shape how it impacts on their lives.

“Fostering this kind of positive engagement from young people with the Senedd is important for the future of our democracy in Wales.

“I would like to say a thank you to the pupils from Ysgol Bryn Tabor and Ysgol Bro Alun as well as the members of staff for extending to me the privilege of speaking with them about the work of the Senedd.”
