On Friday 10th July some year 6 pupils went to the Reardon Smith Lecture Theatre for the Welsh Heritage Schools Initiative (WHSI) awards ceremony. They had been nominated for the award following the highly successful World War 1 exhibition they had organised in October. Judges rom WHSI visited the school in May to meet the children and learn about the projects. They were so impressed that Albany won 1st prize in the whole of Wales in the Primary Schools category. This is an amazing achievement for our school. The children were presented with a shield and a cheque for the school for £1000 provided by Admiral Group. The year 6 children have decided to spend some of the money on setting up a new website for 'Albany Military Hospital' that can be run by future year 6 pupils an provide an area to share all of the creative work that the project creates. As a school we think this is a great idea and would like to congratulate year 6 on their success and wish them the best of luck in the next stage of education as they move on to high school. GOOD LUCK YEAR 6! To find out more about theWelsh Heritage Schools Initiative click here http://www.whsi.org.uk
