At the invitation of the Welsh Centre for International Affairs and Mr Tom Jones, Vice President of the Wales Council for Voluntary Action and member of the European Economic and Social Committee, students Isabel Jones and Timothy Tempus, accompanied by teacher Mrs Clements, visited the European Parliament in Brussels on Tuesday 10th January.
Here, they sat in on a meeting of the European Economic and Social Committee, which was launching a consultation on the European Pillar of Social Rights, as well as meeting Derek Vaughan (a locally elected member of the European Parliament). A tour of the impressive European Parliament building was also included.
The visit was organised by Miss Ffion Jones from the Welsh Centre for International Affairs, following CSFC’s success at winning the Wales Schools Debating Championship. This was an exceptional opportunity to see the European Parliament working at first-hand, and both Timothy and Isabal found the trip to be very insightful.
