Gwobr Efydd Siarter Iaith / Bronze Award Welsh Language Charter

We have been busy in 2018 helping our school achieve a Bronze Award in the Welsh Language Charter for primary schools. We are proud of what we have achieved. We believe children now have the opportunity to speak and enjoy Welsh during every part of their school day.

We were so successful at spreading Welsh throughout the school that Overmonnow Primary has been selected as a Learning Network School for Welsh, supporting other schools to promote Welsh in their own setting.


Gwobr Arian Siarter Iaith / Silver Award Welsh Language Charter
