Brynaman Primary School took centre stage at the launch of a new educational pack last week.

The Welsh Language Commissioner launched a new educational pack on Friday, December 6 at Brynaman Primary School, to encourage children to search, look, and listen out for the Welsh language in their area.

The new educational pack includes a video, filmed in Brynaman, and stars two pupils from Ysgol Dyffryn Aman, Briallen Rees-Owen and Cai Efan Thomas.

To launch the educational pack - instead of the usual morning assembly - a premiere was held at Brynaman Primary School. Pupils arrived in style to school, wearing party clothes for the occasion.

A long red carpet was rolled out to welcome the children to the premiere, and the hall was draped with a glitzy silver banner, promoting Welsh rights.

Speaking at the premiere Aled Roberts, The Welsh Language Commissioner told the children about the importance of the Welsh language in Amman Valley, and the advantages of bilingualism.

Also speaking at the premiere were Glyn Jones and Owen James from Menter Iaith Dinefwr and head of the school, Lee James.

Aled Roberts, The Welsh Language Commissioner said: "It’s important that, given the government's target to reach a million Welsh speakers by 2050, children are aware of their rights as Welsh speakers.

"The educational pack will teach children from a young age about their language rights, so that Welsh will become the default language when accessing services when they get older.”

The new educational pack includes a video, a lesson plan and power point presentation explaining the role of the Welsh Language Commissioner in Wales. The resource is aimed at pupils at the end of Key Stage 2 (year 5 and 6) and is available from the Welsh government's HWB website.
