TO OFFICIALLY celebrate the launch of Ysgol Gymraeg y Trallwng, the new Welsh Medium Primary school in Welshpool, a day of activities have been organised which includes, an evening concert with one of the rising stars of the Welsh music scene.

During the last year, Alys Williams, has become one of the biggest names in the Welsh language music scene.

She has appeared several times on S4C with a programme following her development from appearing on The Voice to headlining the closing concert at the National Eisteddfod which was held last year on Anglesey and arguably the biggest Welsh language gig each year.

Chair of Ysgol Gymraeg y Trallwng Lindsey Phillips said: "We decided that we needed to wait a bit before having a day of celebration that we have a Welsh medium school here.

Back in September - the pupils and teaching team were all new.

"Everyone had to get to know each other and allow things to settle down before we thought about organising a celebration."

Lindsey added that the pupils standard of Welsh had improved dramatically over the last few months and that they had been able to plan the day of events as a celebration

The day starts with a morning of fun, at Welshpool Town Hall - there Mudiad Meithrin (Nursery school) will have a singing session with Linda Griffiths, followed by a story and movement fun interactive session with Mair Tomos Ifans.

A coffee morning will also be held there from 10am to 11.30.

During the afternoon there will be a special school assembly with items prepared by the pupils.

The concert to celebrate the launch with Alys Williams and Y Cledrau, headlining starts at 8pm and includes a Hog Roast.

Tickets cost £10 and can be bought at the door.
