Equamob 2009 Conference about Quality in Leonardo Projects

We have just come back from the December 2009 EQUAMOB conference in Vicenza where specific issues including preparation and mentoring for internships abroad were high on the agenda. The two day event allowed many foreign partners and local schools to meet and exchange ideas to continue improving the quality of the organization and delivering of Leonardo da Vinci, youth mobility, projects. The conference was hosted by forTES and also included guest speakers and workshops.
We would like to express our thanks to forTES for inviting us and we look forward to collaborating with them in the near future.


Wales U18 v Australia U18

Wales has long been a proud rugby nation and December offered a taste of what the future has to offer in international rugby. A spirited 2500-strong crowd watched the first international at Parc Eirias, Colwyn Bay as Wales Under 18s succumbed to a strong Australian Schools XV by six points to ten. Despite the wintery conditions, both sides were committed in defense and attack and produced a competitive encounter. Wales head coach Simon King was pleased with the way his youngsters dealt with the experience. Many of Wales’ current team have played for the under 18s including Dan Biggar, Jamie Roberts, Leigh Halfpenny and James Hook.
