Global Learning Programme

June 27th, 2016 by Sarah Turnham

As part of our Global Learning Programme Llanwern hosted a mini conference. Students in year 12 from Llanwern, Bassaleg and Lewis Girls Schools met together to discuss international school trips. Students from each school gave presentations, either about international trips that they had attended in the last year, or visits they would be attending in the next year. Students discussed their hopes and fears, challenges they faced, and the rewarding experiences they encountered. We were also lucky to have Philippa Watkins from the University of South Wales who gave the students an insight into a university’s perspective of international visits and volunteering and gave the students some advice on how to showcase their experiences in applications and interviews. Thank you to everyone who was involved, it was a very informative and enjoyable afternoon.
