Syfflag, the Welsh Language Education Group has called for all those concerned about the future Welsh language in Flintshire to attend a meeting on Thursday 28th January at Ysgol Glanrafon in Mold.

Syfflag say in a press release;

“In the year when the Urdd Eisteddfod is in Flint, Welsh language education in the County is reaching a new low.

The County has recently published its revised Welsh Education Strategic Plan, and while the development of a new Welsh Language school in Shotton is welcomed, Syfflag believes that the Plan is totally lacking ambition.

Even worse this progress will be massively undermined by the closure of Ysgol Mornant, the only Welsh language primary school in the North of the County.

Flintshire are proposing to close Ysgol Mornant because of a recent decline in numbers.

The Council believes pupils will move to Welsh Language schools in Holywell ( 8 Miles away) or Prestatyn (5 miles away). This is too far for young children to travel and Flintshire is effectively destroying the Language in one of its few remaining heartlands In the County.”

The meeting will be addressed by Assembly Members including Aled Roberts and Llyr Hughes-Griffiths, as well as former pupils of Ysgol Mo

The meeting at Glanrafon starts at 7.00pm – Thursday 28th January.
