EDUCATION TOURS

The Scarlets are passionate about education and have developed bespoke packages for primary and secondary schools. Tours are pre-booked and the visit is planned with an experienced member of the community department.

The education tours promise to deliver a day of aspiration for pupils, offering a fun and exciting learning environment away from the class room. Bespoke packages that are Maths, English and Art based, encompassing the theme of the tour. The day can accommodate 100+ pupils and really is a unique experience for schools. Education tours include,

• An education experience based on custom themed projects
• A tour of the stadium; encompassing both rugby and hospitality areas
• Activities based trails focusing on literacy and/or numeracy
• Q&A with a Scarlets star*
• Opportunity for pupils to enjoy a skills session with a Scarlets community coach

Dewi Sant School visited the Stadium earlier this year for a 'Champions' day. The children met with International player Rhys Priestland and spent the day taking part in fun activities. Miss Owen, Deputy Head of the school commented,

"The tour was exceptional with an excellent Scarlets member of staff leading the sessions. The activities were very relevant and the planning was thorough and detailed. Thank you very much, we will definitely be returning in the future."

Year 7 pupils from Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera visited Parc y Scarlets over a three week period to learn about the stadium. The young pupils of Ystalyfera comprehensive school had a great time at the home of the Scarlets throughout June of 2015. Each visiting class were given an extensive tour of the stadium, from the hospitality suites and executive boxes on the upper floors to the atmospheric changing rooms and state of the art performance gym in the bowels of the Parc.

The school's visit was to help the pupils experience the inner workings of large stadiums as they studied the theme of 'stadiums'. They were also given the opportunity to ask Jon Daniels, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of Rugby at the Scarlets, any questions they liked regarding the Scarlets and the stadium. Noir Jones, a teacher from Ysgol Ystalyfera, was extremely happy with the experience saying,

"Thank you very much. The pupils and the teachers had a whale of a time. We've learnt a bit about the stadium and enjoyed the trail very much. A fun filled and informative day. It'll be a pleasure to come back!"
