Grŵp Llandrillo Menai’s Student Enrichment officer Aaron Beacher said: “These events are a really good chance for us to welcome our new students and ensure they are all aware of the clubs, enrichment activities and support we offer while they are studying with us.
“This is also a great chance to meet new friends and make connections with the organisations we have attending these events. These events are about ensuring that students feel supported throughout their journey here at Grŵp Llandrillo Menai and have a clear view of the opportunities and support available.
“I would also like to express my appreciation to all the staff across the Grŵp who have helped with the preparation and planning to ensure we give our learners the best welcome and support we can offer. This has been a huge team effort, thank you very much.”
