Congratulations to pupils at Bryngwyn School who have been rewarded for their efforts to promote the learning of foreign languages as part of the Routes into Languages Cymru initiative. During the programme, under the inspiring direction from their Head of
Languages Ms Tonia Antoniazzi, they have learned how to be language ambassadors with activities which have included making a video.

Their treat involved a trip to London which included a visit to Europe House and the Houses of Parliament where they met Nia Griffith MP who chairs the All Party Parliamentary Modern Foreign Languages Group and the Secretary of the Group, Philip Harding-Esch of the British Council, who both congratulated the pupils on their work.

Whilst in the Houses of Parliament, they were able to go into the Chamber of the House of Commons where MPs take part in debates, and even stand where the Prime Minister stands at Prime Minister’s questions, before they went into the gallery of the House of Lords to watch the Lords debating.
