Grant Spotlight: Cardiff Castle

October 9, 2019 / Catherine Nicholas / Spotlight - Grants

Part of our grant supporting the December AP Comparative Gov trip to the United Kingdom will cover the cost of students visiting Cardiff Castle, located in the center of the Welsh capital city.  The castle dates from the 11th century and is built on a Roman fort dating from the 50s AD.  In the mid-1800s, the castle was under the ownership of the 3rd Marquess of Bute, reputed to be the richest man in the world at the time thanks to the coal industry.  Today, the castle belongs to the City of Cardiff and is a major historical attraction.  The school is lucky to have teachers like Mr. McGuire, who go above and beyond to plan and execute life-changing trips like this one.
