South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
Before the Easter break three pupils from local secondary school, Glan-y-Môr
spent a week at South Caernarfon Creameries on work experience; Siôn
Owen in the Engineering department, Aaron Jones in the office/IT and Kia
Hughes in the laboratory. All three were eager to learn and it was a
pleasure to have them on site.
The business always wants to support educational initiatives when
possible. Having the opportunity to experience real working life helps
pupils to plan their future and choose a career of interest to them. .
Siôn found his time in the engineering department useful and said “I
want to be an electrician and it was good to be able to see how a
engineering department works. I saw different equipment being repaired
and all the paperwork that has to be done. I wish to thank everyone for
their welcome. I enjoyed it very much”.
Aaron also found the experience worthwhile commentingthat “it was
interesting to see cheese production and the new factory being
prepared. Kia was kept busy testing milk, weighing chemicals and
swabing and said that she had “learnt that hygiene and quality is very
important in a food factory”.
