Gwynedd Primary Schools’ Language Charter, launched by Gwynedd Council last year, is aimed at encouraging children to use the language in their play and other day-to-day activities outside the classroom.
As well as a cash prize of £50, Elin had the opportunity, with two of her friends, to visit the local Dylunio Gringo studio in Penygroes to see her logo being finalised by a professional designer. Ysgol Pentrechaf also got a £100 worth of book tokens.
Councillor Sian Gwenllian, the Cabinet Member with responsibility for Education said: “It’s an eye-catching logo, and also reflects one of the Charter’s core messages, that speaking Welsh is fun.”
With the Charter being implemented in all primary schools in Gwynedd over the next year, a gold, silver or bronze status will be awarded to individual schools in accordance with how successful they have been in encouraging children to communicate in Welsh with each other.
