ESOL students 'walk in her shoes'

ESOL staff and students from Gower College Swansea have completed a sponsored walk for the 'Walk in Her Shoes' campaign, to coincide with International Women’s Day.

Around 60 students walked from the Llwyn y Bryn campus to Brynmill and Singleton Parks and then along Swansea Bay, through the city centre and back again.

They raised £265.50 for Care International UK and the money will go towards accessing clean water for women and girls living in extreme poverty around the world.

Silence is golden for good cause

A group of Independent Living Skills students at Gower College Swansea have pledged to stay silent in the hopes of raising money for a local charity.

The students are responding to a recent appeal for funds from the Community Horse and Pony Scheme - or CHAPS - which provides rehabilitation through the therapeutic use of horses in the Swansea area.

Congratulations to the group of Armed Forces Preparation Course students who raised over £1,800 for charity with a walk up South Wales’ highest peak. The walk to the top of Pen-y-Fan has raised the incredible amount which will be split between three charities - “Blood Bikes Wales”, “Wales Air Ambulance” and “Healing the Wounds” charities. Course tutor Greg Morgan thanked the students for their fundraising efforts .

The college course has actively supported these charities for a number of years and raised over £10,000 to date.

Keep up the good work!

Students put Pen-y-Bryn pupils through their paces

Students on the Armed Forces Preparation course at Gower College Swansea have organised a sponsored cycle with a difference. Pupils from Pen-y-Bryn Special School completed a virtual ride around the coast of Gower, without leaving the Sports Centre on the Tycoch campus!

They were set a challenge to collectively cover the 46 miles in 15 minutes, which is some feat. They actually exceeded this, travelling a total distance of 61.1 miles!
