A Dylan Thomas Celebration

Today saw a special assembly at Dylan Thomas Community School. Here pupils from Year 8 shared their photographs which they had taken as part of my Bringing Gower Home project. We planned the assembly a few weeks ago so everybody was nervous about how well it would work on the day.

We packed into the school drama theatre and showed the photographs on the big cinema screen. They looked amazing and it was great to see the reactions on the faces of the audience. Each student only had ten seconds to say a little about their photograph which meant this assembly was fast paced and entertaining for everyone.

I would love to have taken more photographs (and video) of this special event but the law is very protective when it comes to photographing children (and rightly so). So here I have just a little sample of the students making some last minute revisions to their speeches.

Well done everyone!


I am organising, delivering, and supporting this project in collaboration with Gower Landscape Partnership (GLP) which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Natural Resources Wales, City and County of Swansea, and National Trust.
