. . . Swans book proves pupils are top of the class
Swansea City has been helping Ysgol Pen-y-Bryn Special School produce a new book on the club as part of a special project.
A number of the players have visited the school to meet the pupils, together with the likes of former stalwart Alan Tate, club ambassador Lee Trundle and legend Alan Curtis.
The pupils have also visited the Liberty on a number of occasions this season where the knowledgeable Stuart Button has delivered his usual informative stadium tours and interesting history lesson about the club and its home.
They’ve even had a behind-the-scenes trip to the training ground to see the squad preparing for a Premier League fixture.
The school’s Sixth Form Young Enterprise group have taken the lead in producing the book with so many other pupils working hard to gather the interviews and artwork which will earn them an Agored Cymru qualification.
Copies of the book, which will be released in March 2016, will also be made available to all Swansea libraries in order to share the pupils’ excellent work and promote literacy skills.
There is even an interactive version of the book which has been expertly narrated by our very own star Kevin Johns and available here on release via a special QR code included within the book.
Swans chairman, Huw Jenkins, said: “The club has always tried to play an active role in the community and I know our players and staff have not only enjoyed meeting the pupils at Pen-y-Bryn, but been amazed by the work everyone at the school has put in to produce this excellent publication.
“The feedback we’ve received from the players, pupils and staff at Pen-y-Bryn has been fantastic and I’m delighted to see that the school is donating all proceeds from the sale of the book to the charity Ty Hafan 3.
“It is a fantastic publication that all the pupils should be very proud of. So well done again to all the children at Ysgol Pen-y-Bryn . . . you’ve made Swansea City proud.’’
