Several schools across Carmarthenshire have benefited from a visit from an international group of volunteers.
The volunteers from Italy, Greece, Turkey, France, China, Japan and South Korea are all engaged in eco-projects in Carmarthenshire via UNA exchange, a Cardiff-based charity promoting volunteering opportunities within Wales and in the world.
On Wednesday, pupils in Talley School, Ysgol y Castell in Kidwelly, Pontiets School and Ponthenri School learnt about the countries, cultures and languages of the various volunteers, through games and songs.
Lorena Prist, European Networking Officer at the West Wales European Centre, has been organising similar school visits for the past few years to give pupils in Carmarthenshire the opportunity to meet people from other countries worldwide and learn about their cultures and languages.
Several more school visits will take place before the end of the eco-project in April.
Carmarthenshire County Council executive board member for regeneration and leisure Cllr Clive Scourfield said: “This is an excellent project and I am pleased that pupils in Carmarthenshire are having the opportunity to meet volunteers from overseas and learn about their cultures.”
