Year 7 Crucial Crew


Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan held their annual Crucial Crew sessions where several agencies spoke to Year 7 learners about keeping themselves safe in various situations.

The importance of food hygiene was highlighted by Karen Donnelly from the Food Standards Agency. She informed them of how bacteria develops and food and how to avoid being ill. The session was engaging and the learners left understanding how to store and cook food safely.

Ted Watson from the RNLI spoke to the learners about staying safe on, in or near water which included the sea, canals and rivers. Outreach Worker Lorna Fenwick raised awareness of what a young carer is, what they do, how they feel and how we can support them. Katie Lynch and Haf Owen from the Welsh Women’s Aid spoke about domestic abuse. PCSO Tomos Davies and PCSO Larry Cooper from the British Transport Police discussed railway safety with the learners.

PC Brown of School Beat spoke to the year 7s about alcohol misuse and the dangers of alcohol and drugs. The learners were able to offer their thoughts and opinions and also ask questions about the dangers of alcohol especially in young people. This was a valuable lesson for all of year 7, who responded maturely and respectfully.

Learners Leo-Jack Monks and Adam Morgan said: “We really enjoyed the British Transport Police because it taught us to be safe near train tracks”

“I learnt about what can harm you in the sea and how to be safe by the sea,” added Ellie Dodd.

Kellisha-Jo Evans commented: “We all enjoyed the food hygiene and Women’s Aid presentations because they were educating and fun.”

Lisa Kelly-Roberts, Head of Year 7 organised the day. She said: “It was our pleasure to welcome the Crucial Crew back to Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan again this year.  Crucial Crew gives the learners a vital opportunity  to participate in a number of interactive workshops delivered by a network of agencies and charities with a focus on personal safety, a message that is vitally important.”
