Welsh Youth Speaks

Annwyl bawb/ Dear All Mae’r neges isod wedi ei ddanfon at yr ysgolion sydd wedi cystadlu yn y gystadleuath yn ddiweddar. The message below has been sent to all schools that have competed in the recent past.

“Annwyl Brifathrawon/ Athrawon/ Ffrindiau, Mae’r amser wedi dod unwaith eto i drefnu’r gystadleuaeth Siarad Gyhoeddus a gobeithiaf y byddwch i gyd yn medru darparu timoedd i gymryd rhan. Mae dyddiadau a lleoliadau’r gystadleuaeth fel a ganlyn: Rownd gyn-derfynol y Gorllewin – Hydref 25ain yn Ysgol Bro Dinefwr, Ffairfach i ddechrau am 2.00yh Rownd gyn derfynol y Dwyrain _ Hydref 26ain yn Ysgol Gyfun Treorci i ddechrau am 1.00yh (noder yr amser fan hyn) Hoffem ddiolch i’r ddwy ysgol am gytuno i gael y gystadleuaeth. I’r rhai lwcus a hynod ddawnus hynny sy’n cyrraedd y rownd derfynol, mi fydd hwnnw i’w gynnal ar Dachwedd y 9fed yn Nhy Hywel, Bae Caerdydd am 2.00yh. Yn atodol i’r ebost hyn mi welwch ganllawiau a ffurflenni cais perthnasol i’ch ardal. Hoffem petaech yn gallu ymateb i’r ebost hyn cyn gynted a phosib dim ond i gadarnhau eich bod wedi ei gael ac i gadarnhau’r person cyswllt am eleni. Hefyd os gaf i’r ymatebion yn gynnar mi allai benderfynnu os oes angen tair rownd gyn-derfynol gan bod niferoedd y timau yn cynyddu. Dwi’n mwynhau’r gystadleuaeth hon mas draw bob blwyddyn a’r gobaith yw bod eich disgyblion yn cael profiadau da ond hefyd y pleser o gymryd rhan. Dwi’n gwerthfawrogu’n fawr yr ymdrech ar eich rhan chi’r athrawon. Gan obeithio cael ymatebion cloi Hwyl, Dai Dyer Sym 07977913637. Basically (for those not able to understand the language of heaven!) it invites all the schools to take part this year again and notes the dates of the competition which are Semi final Area West – October 25th in Ysgol Bro Dinefwr at 2.00pm Semi final Area East – October 26th in Ysgol Gyfun Treorci at 1.00pm Final – Monday November 13th in Ty Howell Cardiff Bay at 2.00pm As the situation of Welsh speakers in schools is improving there might be other schools who now feel able to put a team forward and obviously they would be welcome.

Young Musician 2014/2015

Cardiff West sponsored Ben Lewis, who attends Radyr Comprehensive, in this year’s Area Final held at Whitchurch High School.  Ben played J.S.Bach’s Cello Sonata Third Movement and Cello Suite Prelude and Allemande. There were ten competitors in the Instrumental competition and five in the Vocal competition. President Geoff Pollard and Liz Davies joined Ben to congratulate him on his fine performance. The audience was treated to a wonderful evening of performances, which would have graced any professional stage. The task of choosing the competitors to go through to the District Final fell to Christiana Mavron and Frank Kelleher in the Instrumental competition and Kate Woolveridge and Gail Pearson in the Vocalist competition.
