Parents run masterclasses for Pencoed pupils

27 June 2016

Mums and Dads have gone back to school at Pencoed Primary to help pass on a range of their unique talents to pupils.

At the school’s first ever ‘Community Skills Day’, 30 parents were invited in to host masterclasses on subjects ranging from balloon artistry to making jewellery, mosaics and weaving.

In all, 20 workshops allowed over 250 pupils the opportunity to explore new skills that they wouldn’t usually have had the chance to learn in school.

Local businesses including Davey’s Building Merchants, Wickes, Bridgend Tile Centre and Tesco also donated supplies on the day to ensure that every pupil could take something home as a memento – whether it be a cupcake, a cushion, or a sock puppet!

Head teacher Suzanne Sarjeant said: “The day was a resounding success and was another example of the fantastic support that we receive from parents and the wider community in Pencoed.”
