Delyn MP David Hanson and Sandy Mewies AM will this Friday visit Ysgol y Llan, Whitford to congratulate Nursery Nurse Andrea Davies after she was named the Teaching Assistant of the Year for Wales.
Andrea was given the award towards the end of the summer term at the 2008 Teaching Awards Wales. This year 8,400 nominations were made across the 11 categories.
Andrea, who has worked at Ysgol y Llan over the past 18 years, now goes forward to the UK finals which will be held in the London Palladium in October.
David Hanson said:
“I am delighted for Andrea Davies who has had her efforts recognised through this award. Andrea is clearly a very important part of Ysgol y Llan and her abilities and dedication are helping the children at the school to develop and set them on the way to fulfilling their potential.
“I am also very much looking forward to talking to the young students and answering their questions during their Friday Assembly.”
Sandy Mewies said:
“I am looking forward to making another visit to Ysgol y Lan to see Andrea get her award. This is a splendid achievement for her and I am sure that everyone at the school is celebrating her success”.
