St. Dwynwen Awards
On Monday 25 January, Gower College Swansea celebrated the Welsh patron saint for love St. Dwynwen’s day a little bit differently.
We decided to award positive stories by asking staff and learners to nominate a person who has been friendly, loving and shown community spirit over the past year.
