Magnox sponsors educational visit to Cardiff
Magnox Ltd, working in partnership with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and EnergySolutions, was delighted to support two primary schools to visit Cardiff as part of its socio-economic investment in the local area.
Ysgol Bro Hedd Wyn, Trawsfynydd and Ysgol Cefn Coch, Penrhyndeaudraeth were the first recipients of funding attributed to Trawsfynydd Site from the newly launched Magnox socio-economic scheme.
The primary schools received £1,000 from Magnox to fund an educational visit to Cardiff for 35 pupils to enhance their studies by visiting the home of the Welsh Government Y Senedd, St Fagans National Museum of Wales, a behind the scenes tour of the Millennium Stadium and the Millennium Music Centre and to also enjoy the sights and sounds of Cardiff on an open bus tour of the City.
Heulwen Jones, Head Teacher at Ysgol Bro Hedd Wyn said: “We are very grateful to Magnox for supporting our educational trip. All the pupils enjoyed their visit to our capital city and we all learned something new about Cardiff.”
Dave Wilson, Site Director at Trawsfynydd site, said: “We have been part of this community for many years and are pleased to support this project with socio-economic funding from the Magnox scheme. Part of Magnox’s role in the local area is to ensure that we provide assistance to mitigate the impact of decommissioning and build sustainable communities.”
