Promote Welsh language throughout the school
Cymraeg Campus is a Language Charter which aims to inspire children and young people to use the Welsh language in all aspects of their lives. There are three awards to work towards: Bronze, Silver and Gold. At St. Mary's Primary we are currently working towards our Silver award.
Siarter iaith Bronze award 2019
The Siarter Iaith bronze award, is a project introduced by the Welsh Assembly to all schools in Wales, to promote the Welsh language, to develop a Welsh ethos and encourage pupils to improve their Welsh language skills. The Charter provides a framework for schools to follow in order to achieve the awards. We were delighted to have achieved our bronze award in 2019, below is a picture of the criw cymraeg presenting the bronze award in praise assembly.
