Llangors primary praised for ‘making a difference’ at its official opening

Llangors Church in Wales School has been officially opened by Archbishop John and Welsh Education Secretary Kirsty Williams.

The 180-pupil school is one of three new Church in Wales primaries which have been built in the Gwernyfed catchment area as part of a £24m project, including a Diocesan Grant of £527,798.

Speaking to pupils at the opening, Archbishop John said: “Because you’re a Church school, one of the things that helps you grow in a different way is what you learn about the Lord Jesus, what you learn through your collective worship.

“When you think about things that are not maths, or Cymraeg, English or history, you learn about other things that help you grow into not just being clever people but help you grow into being kind people, compassionate people, loving people.

“That’s why, as the Church in Wales, we value our partnership with the education authority, and the Welsh Government, because it helps us play a part in helping you to grow.”

Kirsty Williams said: “It’s fantastic to be here because I’ve heard so much about how this school is making a difference. It is a really great example of investment in early years education.”
