For CourseworkGareth Wyn Parry, a first year student at Coleg Menai, Bangor, North Wales, has chosen to base a unit of his coursework on the forthcoming Bulldog International Rally of North Wales.
Gareth, who is studying for a BTEC National Diploma in Media Production, specialising in Film and Television, aims to produce a five-minute video on the event, which will form the basis of one of the units, needed to pass his first year in college. Ultimately Gareth aims to go to university and to become a Sports Cameraman.
Fellow student Cari Ann Roberts who has recently won a scholarship with local broadcasting company Barcud Derwen will assist Gareth on the day. The pair are already planning their video presentation.
Gareth said: "I've been interested in rallying since I was very young. I must have been about five or six years of age when I went to see my first rally. I have chosen to make my film on the Bulldog Rally because I'm a regular spectator every year on this event and their date change this year has really suited the timetable we were set in college. I'm really looking forward to it."
Rally Manager Kevin Witton commented: "We as event organisers are always keen to work with the local community, so when Coleg Menai student Gareth approached us about using the Bulldog Rally in his project we were only too happy to assist."
