A student from Llandudno enjoyed triple success at the 2019 Coleg Llandrillo Achievers Awards.

At a glitzy ceremony held at Venue Cymru, Llandudno, on Thursday (June 13), Konrad Jastrzebski proved to be the star of the show as he scooped three prizes - including the overall Student of the Year award.

The Computing and Media student who moved to Wales from his native Poland when he was 14 years old, was praised for having a “brilliant” academic year.

Speaking on winning his awards, Konrad said: “I knew I was going to win one beforehand and then got told that I was going to be given two when I arrived here tonight.

“The third one (Student of the Year) was a complete surprise though, especially as I was up against all the other students. I’m very happy but very surprised.”

Other award winners on the night were:

Commenting on the success of this year’s students, Coleg Llandrillo CEO Dafydd Evans said: “it’s been a brilliant night tonight and one that celebrates the successes of our students here at Coleg Llandrillo, they all deserve it.

“We are very grateful to our sponsors who have supported us and to all the staff who worked hard to set this night up.”

Mr Evans also paid tribute to one of the college’s other former bosses and Cartrefi Conwy chairman - Huw Evans OBE.

A moment of silence was held in tribute to the 68-year-old who died last week.

Around 200 people attended this year’s Achiever Awards event, including sponsor representatives from the likes of Newsquest Media, Surf Snowdonia and Betsi Cadwaladr.
