“What a fantastic range of creativity and knowledge of the Welsh language. Well done all.”
Sean Rees added: “Congratulations to all the pupils of Ysgol Maes Y Morfa for their excellent work.
“I could not judge because all of the entries received were fantastic and of such a high standard. I know the judges also found it very difficult to decide.
“It Is always great to visit my former School and see just how it continues to go from strength to strength in being an emerging example of strong partnership work between children’s education and the Community.”
