» Language Centre
A new home. A new challenge. Learn Welsh.
If your child/children are between 7 and 11 years, and intend to start school in the Preseli area, you will be aware that Welsh is the main medium through which subjects are taught.
Throughout Wales, the teaching of Welsh is compulsory between the ages of 5 and 16. This reflects the importance of the language as an integral part of the culture, heritage, and everyday life of Wales.
The Language Centre was opened in September 1985 to help newcomers to the area speak Welsh quickly.
The main aim of the Language Centers is to provide an intensive course in Welsh for learners that will enable them to fully take part in bilingual education. This is extremely important in assisting primary schools to implement a concurrent language policy.
The Bro Preseli Language Centre is located at Ysgol Bro Preseli. Here, in a friendly environment, children of similar age from many local primary schools come together for beginners’ Welsh courses.
The usual pattern of attendance is that children will attend the Ganolfan for two days a week during their first year and one day a week during the second year.
Lessons at the Ganolfan Iaith begin at 9:00 am and end at 15:00 pm.
Children have their lunch in the canteen of Ysgol Bro Preseli. There is usually a choice of hot lunches and a choice of sandwiches, wraps, fruits, yoghurts, and drinks. Children are also welcome to bring a packed lunch.
There will be free swimming lessons for children who attend the Ganolfan during their first year.
Transport will be provided for the children who require it (usually on the Secondary school bus.) Children who come to the Ganolfan by bus will be supervised on arrival and until departure.
The Ganolfan Iaith is situated on the campus of Ysgol Bro Preseli in the village of Crymych, North Pembrokeshire on the A478 road.
