Man who died after being pulled from the sea in Swansea 'was life and soul to the party'

A WALK THROUGH CLYNE GARDENS

Kilvey Killer is back on

The race, affectionately dubbed the Kilvey Killer by those brave enough to tackle it, sees strongmen and women racing to the top of the hill with bags of cement on their back — all in the name of charity.

A much-loved community event is returning to Swansea after a three-year break - the Kilvey Hill Cement Run.

 

Saturday, July 28, is the date for the diary, the day when crowds and competitors will be flocking to the Eastside hill for a test of physical and mental strength.

Tributes have been paid to a man who died after being pulled from the sea in Swansea. The family of Andrew Gibson, from Swansea, have confirmed his death. Emergency services launched a huge rescue operation on Saturday after reports of a missing swimmer.

Ysgol Crug Glas is a successful special school situated in the heart of the city of Swansea.

The school is part of the Pioneer Special Schools group looking at the new Successful Futures curriculum brought about by the Donaldson Report.

 

The school currently provides for 57 pupils aged between 3 and 19 years. All have profound and multiple, or severe and complex learning difficulties. Many have associated communication, behavioural and / or sensory difficulties, and a significant number have very specific health care requirements.

 

All pupils are considered to be unique individuals, with the potential to develop and learn. Our aim as a school is to find the means to maximise this potential; one of these means is to focus on Total Communication to enable all pupils to have a voice through what ever medium suits them as individuals.
