A SCHOOL pupil who named rooms at a £1.2m rural education centre has visited the cutting-edge building with her classmates.

Catrin Wynne won a competition to come up with ideas for facilities at Coleg Cambria Llysfasi’s Hwb Cymunedol (Community Hub).

The nine year-old, a pupil at nearby Ysgol Pentrecelyn, came up with these four titles – Cricor, Y Gelli, Y Waun and Y Accre – inspired by local farms.

The class were joined for an unveiling ceremony and tour by Head of Llysfasi Elin Roberts, who said: “It was lovely to have Catrin and all of the
children here to see the Hwb Cymunedol for themselves and the rooms she named.

“Her ideas really captured the spirit and warmth of this part of Denbighshire, the families, farms and history that are so important to our community.


“Well done again to Catrin and thank you to the pupils and staff at Ysgol Pentrecelyn for all your support and for coming to visit us.”

Headteacher Andrew Evans added: “We are very proud of Catrin, this is a great legacy for her and for the school as it further strengthens our links with the college and the hub in particular is a great asset to the Vale.”

The two-storey education centre includes IT and multimedia suites, space for workshops, classrooms, breakout spaces, a kitchen area, offices, and meeting rooms which will deliver bilingual and family and community-focused services.
