At Ysgol Craig y Don we pride ourselves in offering our pupils plenty of opportunities to immerse themselves in the culture and heritage of Wales. We were awarded the Bronze Cymraeg Campus Award in September 2018.
Yn ein hysgol ni mae’r plant yn cael dogon o gyfle i gymryd rhan yn niwylliant ac etifeddiaeth Cymru.
Every year the pupils are given opportunities to participate in numerous competitions in the Urdd Eisteddfod. This year the Eisteddfod was held at Builth Wells and we took advantage of this occasion to visit Cilmeri where a memorial stone to Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the last native prince of Wales, has been erected. The children were in fine voice as they sang the national anthem close by.
In conjunction with the Urdd also, Rhydian Prys Jones joined our own after school Urdd sessions to develop the children’s physical literacy skills through the medium of Welsh.
We traditionally take our Year 6 pupils to the Urdd centre in Cardiff for a residential visit. The children had some great experiences visiting the numerous attractions that our capital city has to offer.
The trip does not disappoint! The children normally visit the Welsh Assembly, The Big Pit, Sain Ffagan museum and Principality Stadium or Cardiff City’s football stadium and they have a boat trip around Cardiff Bay.
We also encourage Welsh visitors to our school and we recently watched a fabulous performance of “Tales of Wales” by the travelling Pandemonium theatre.
