Together Everyone Achieves More

About Us
Ysgol Llanddulas is a voluntary-controlled church school in the village of Llanddulas, near the town of Abergele in Conwy. The school caters for pupils between the ages of three and eleven in six classes. Our current mini bus is not big enough to transport a full class of children.

We need a new one that has a larger seating capacity so that more pupils can go on more school trips. This will help the school align with the new curriculum of 'Successful Futures' in getting pupils out and about more.
Our Mission
For our pupils, teachers, parents and wider community of Llanddulas each taking their turn and combined, row continuously for 7 days (168 hours).

We anticipate over 400 people taking part we want to show that regardless of Age: “TEAM – TOGETHER EVERY ACHIEVES MORE”.

We will inspire our pupils (our future generation) of the spirit of working together with a common goal and instil in them to - Believe that Anything is Possible.
We aim to...
raise much need money for the school, which will be spent on purchasing a new larger School mini bus. A larger bus will allow the school to open up school trips to more pupils.

What we want to achieve...

For the school and community of Ysgol Llanddulas  to row continuously on a Concept 2 rowing machine/s for 7 days (168hrs) from 12pm on Monday 18th March 2019 to 12pm Monday 25th March 2019.

The row will consist of pupils, teachers, parents and the wider community of Llanddulas each taking their turn in rowing for how long they possibly can / or duration of choice. We have set ourselves this record as a really hard Goal to showcase to the school and its pupils, that anything is possible, the sky is the limit and with the hope and desire to inspire our pupils that remarkable things can be achieved if they put their mind to it.

These are our children of the future and allowing them to believe and dream Big, can only help them pave the way for a wonderful future ahead. We hope to raise lots of money for the school which will be put to some great causes, such as… 

A new school minibus

The mini bus is a lifeline to the school, allowing the children to go on educational, sporting and adventurous trips, but the current mini bus will only transport half a class. We would like to buy the school a second minibus so that all pupils in a class can be taken on school trips when needed.

A defibrillator (or two) for the village

80% of cardiac arrests occur in the home, and of those in public places under 1% occur in a leisure facility or sports ground.In the UK approximately 60,000 people sustain cardiac arrest outside hospital and are treated by emergency medical services (EMS) each year. If defibrillation is delivered promptly, initial survival rates as high as 75% have been reported.The chances of successful defibrillation decline at the rate of about 10-20% with each minute of delay.AEDs are easily used by lay people with some training, and it is recommended by bodies such as the Resuscitation Council UK.
