Stu­dents’ achieve­ments cel­e­brated

North Wales Weekly News - - COLEG LLANDRILLO -

THE achieve­ments of 25 of Co­leg Llan­drillo’s out­stand­ing Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion stu­dents were cel­e­brated re­cently at a glitzy cer­e­mony in Venue Cymru, Llan­dudno. Guest of hon­our was Ru­pert Moon, for­mer in­ter­na­tional rugby union player.

Each achiever re­ceived an en­graved crys­tal tro­phy and a cheque for £100, thanks to the gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship of busi­ness peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions who in­jected over £2,000 into the prize pool.

Spon­sors in­cluded North Wales Busi­ness Club, Ge­orge Cameron, Wynne Con­struc­tion, View Cre­ative Agency, RWE Innogy, Welsh Moun­tain Zoo, Cy­morth Llaw, SP Hos­pi­tal­ity Con­sult­ing Ser­vices Ltd, Care Fo­rum Wales – Looked-af­ter Chil­dren Net­work, Bar­clays, Grwp Cynefin, Cartrefi Conwy, John Bel­lis, Capita and Ban­gor Univer­sity.

The 25 win­ners were cho­sen from over 16,000 el­i­gi­ble stu­dents across the col­lege’s cam­puses.

Welsh X-Fac­tor win­ner, Suleiman Atta, who stud­ied Mu­sic Tech­nol­ogy at the col­lege’s Rhos-on-Sea cam­pus, en­ter­tained the crowd dur­ing the in­ter­val with a spine-tin­gling show.

Stu­dents from sev­eral ar­eas of the col­lege were able to help out be­fore and dur­ing the awards cer­e­mony, gain­ing first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence of the or­gan­i­sa­tion and run­ning of a ma­jor event.

Hos­pi­tal­ity stu­dents or­gan­ised the drinks re­cep­tion for guests, as well as serv­ing their very own non­al­co­holic cock­tail: ap­ple and el­der­flower mint sparkle! They also served the food to all at­ten­dees.

Media stu­dents op­er­ated the in­dus­try-stan­dard HD cam­eras, cap­tur­ing the whole event on film, which will be avail­able to view on the col­lege’s web­site in the com­ing weeks.

There were also pre­sen­ta­tions to five of the col­lege’s football, rugby and squash stu­dents who were awarded Welsh sport­ing caps af­ter rep­re­sent­ing their coun­try this year.
