On the 20th of June 2019, Coleg Menai hosted a fanatic evening for students, guests and sponsors at the Galeri in Caernarfon for the Coleg Menai Achievers Awards Ceremony 2019. The evening was to celebrate the recognition of talented individuals form the collage for their outstanding achievements over the academic year. There were a number of categories, but Byw’n Iach sponsored The Sport & Public Services award.
Our winner this year was Melonie Bray. Melonie is a student in the college but also enjoys rock climbing club, where she offers her time to coach kids.
She has gained additional qualifications such as REC 1st aid, sailing RYA level 1 along with volunteering for the Outdoor Partnership outside of college which will help her to progress as an outdoor instructor. She is a very successful girl that has a 92% attendance rate and her predicted grade is DDD*.
Melonie has Schizoaffective Bipolar type which means her mental health can be extremely hard to deal with at times by juggling childcare, course work, and her personal life she has coped well and her counselling sessions have become further apart because of her progress and stability. Mel has coped with settling in to college life extremely well and work tremendously hard in college and out.
Congratulations from everyone here at Byw’n Iach.Back to blog
