Welsh on Tour Month

Welsh on Tour Month

Once again during May this year we are promoting the Welsh Language on Tour Month which is always a great opportunity to promote all the Welsh language events in Flintshire and Wrexham. Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint and its partners in the county have produced a leaflet with information about all of the different activities and meetings of the local Welsh language communities/ choirs/ organisations. You should get a copy of the leaflet with your community paper or it can be seen on Menter Iaith’s website www.menteriaithsiryfflint.co.uk

If you’d like a supply of the leaflets to distribute amongst your friends/ members contact the Menter Iaith on 01352 744040 or email emma@menterfflint.cymru

Welsh Medium school places

Have you considered Welsh medium education for your child? New Welsh Medium school places will be available from September 2014 for Nursery and Reception aged pupils for the first time in Shotton and Deeside, in response to public demand.

Parents and guardians with children who will be 3 or 4 years old by 31 August 2014 can apply for a place in a school nursery or reception class for September 2014.

Flintshire County Council has been working in partnership with Menter Iaith and Mudiad Meithrin and this extra provision for Welsh Medium education will be available from September 2014 in the building currently used by Shotton Infant School on Plymouth Street. It will be called:

Ysgol Croes Atti @ Glannau Dyfrdwy
Croes Atti Primary School @ Deeside

Councillor Chris Bithell, Cabinet Member for Education, said:

“This is a great opportunity for children in the Shotton and Deeside area to have the benefit of being fully bilingual in Welsh and English, by receiving a Welsh Medium education. Admissions to reception classes for next year open on 30 September, and close on 29 November. Parents applying for nursery places can apply from 6 January 2014. I would urge parents and guardians not to miss out on a place!”
