Llannerchymedd pupils at National Assembly

Ynys Môn Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth was joined by pupils from Ysgol Llannerchymedd at the Senedd today.

As part of their visit to Cardiff, pupils were given a tour of the Assembly and were shown Ynys Môn’s seat in the National Assembly chamber, before having the opportunity to quiz their local Assembly Member about everything from travelling from Anglesey to Cardiff to his favourite colour (green, of course!)

Speaking after the visit, Rhun ap Iorwerth said:

“It was good to meet with pupils and teachers from Ysgol Llannerchymedd today. I always enjoy welcoming people from Anglesey to the Assembly so that they can see where decisions that affect them are made, and to remind them that this is their building, and their Assembly.

“Raising awareness amongst young people and making sure that they can get involved is particularly important to me. The National Assembly is currently conducting a consultation on a youth parliament for Wales, and I hope that as many people as possible complete the online survey so that we can get the ball rolling and give our young people a voice.”
