Event to find out more about Welsh language education in Torfaen

An event is being held this week to help parents find out more about the opportunities for their children to have their education in Welsh.

The council runs a range of Welsh-language education provisions from baby and toddler age through to secondary school. The early years education team  is holding a Welsh Medium Showcase at the Congress Theatre to help parents understand the options available.

The free event will run from 10am until 12pm on Saturday 23 September and is open to all parents with children birth age up to 11-year-old. Lots of fun activities will be on offer for the whole family to take part in, including Welsh singing, Welsh story time sessions, face painting, and balloon modelling.

The Welsh Medium Showcase forms part of the council’s commitment to support Welsh Government’s policy to have a million Welsh speakers by 2050.

Councillor Richard Clark, Torfaen Council’s executive member for children, families and education, said: “More and more parents can testify that choosing Welsh medium education for their child has been a positive and worthwhile experience and an advantage when starting in work. As a parent, deciding on your child’s education will be one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Our Welsh Medium Showcase event will bring together Welsh medium childcare providers, schools, and key partners to engage with parents and provide valuable insights into Welsh medium educational options and what that could mean for their family.”
