Llanelli Star - - FRONT PAGE -

A LLANELLI net­ball team will be shoot­ing for glory after re­ceiv­ing a new kit from Prin­ci­pal­ity Build­ing So­ci­ety.

The kit, which was do­nated by Prin­ci­pal­ity’s Llanelli branch, will see Ys­gol y Strade’s bud­ding net­ball team through the new sea­son at home and abroad.

Ys­gol y Strade and Wales’s largest build­ing so­ci­ety have forged strong links through the Busi­ness Class pro­gramme, a Busi­ness in the Com­mu­nity scheme which aims to de­velop and sup­port busi­ness skills in young peo­ple.

As well as sup­port­ing the health and well­be­ing of the school, Prin­ci­pal­ity col­leagues have spent time men­tor­ing the stu­dents at Ys­gol y Strade on fi­nan­cial ed­u­ca­tion.

Stu­dents are taught valu­able skills such as sav­ing money and bud­get­ing, while also hav­ing the opportunit­y to study for a fully funded London In­sti­tute of Bank­ing and Fi­nance (LIBF) qual­i­fi­ca­tion in Fi­nan­cial Ed­u­ca­tion and Fi­nan­cial Ca­pa­bil­ity.

The fresh kits were re­cently used by the school at Sport Eng­land’s In­ter­na­tional Net­ball Fes­ti­val in Paris, where Ys­gol y Strade came fourth.

Fol­low­ing their suc­cess, the team are look­ing ahead to the new sea­son with joy and anticipati­on.

Eleri Pool­man, head of phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion at Ys­gol y Strade, said: “We are very grate­ful for the sup­port that Prin­ci­pal­ity has given the PE de­part­ment. The net­ball kit is the fourth set of play­ing kit that we have re­ceived, which has been very much ap­pre­ci­ated by the pupils and staff.

“Year 8 pupils had the chance to wear the new kit on their re­cent tour to Paris where they com­peted in an in­ter­na­tional tour­na­ment.

“The girls are very much look­ing for­ward to play­ing in the pro­fes­sional look­ing kit in the 2019-2020 sea­son. Di­olch yn fawr i chi!”

Jeremy Evans, se­nior man­ager at the Llanelli branch of Prin­ci­pal­ity Build­ing So­ci­ety, said: “Strade thrives on its sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties so it’s fan­tas­tic to give our sup­port to their net­ball team with new kits to set them up for the next sea­son ahead.

“We’re re­ally proud of our part­ner­ship with Ys­gol y Strade and the range of fi­nan­cial ed­u­ca­tion les­sons we’ve been able to hold at the school for the ben­e­fit of the stu­dents now and in their fu­ture.”
