The Criw Cymraeg (Welsh Crew) at schools across Pembrokeshire are taking part in a whole host of exciting activities to celebrate 'Shwmae Day' today (Friday, October 15).

Shwmae Day is a celebration of the Welsh language and all things Welsh.

Seren and Sbarc (the Welsh Language Charter mascots) asked children to dress as Welsh superheroes or in their best red, white and green outfits to celebrate the day.

The events kick-starts their Language Charter journey this year.

Bro Ingli Welsh Crew (pictured) organised several activities, and every child, even the staff pledged to come to school dressed in a Welsh cape like Seren and Sbarc.

The Criw Cymraeg arranged a competition between each year for one winner to win a specially designed Seren a Sbarc water bottle.

Parents were invited to have a cup of tea and Welsh cakes when dropping off their children at school in the morning, and to have a Welsh conversation with the Criw Cymraeg or even being taught a few phrases!

The donations will be given to the Wales Air Ambulance.

The Criw Cymraeg also arranged with the kitchen for everyone to have Welsh soup and Welsh cakes for lunch.

Roch School meanwhile dressed up as superheroes.

Their Criw Cyrmaeg arranged lots of exciting activities throughout the day for children to use their Welsh skills from crafts, mocktail making, listening to Welsh music and quizzes to teddy bear picnics.

Children had an extra surprise as they hosted some special superheroes at their picnic, who joined them playing Welsh language games in the playground and sharing a sandwich at the teddy bear picnic.

Scores of teams also registered for the Big Welsh 'Dim Clem' quiz hosted by Menter Iaith Sir Benfro for the English medium primaries.

And finally, to top off the excitement, all schools have access to an online gig by Welsh artist Gwilym Bowen Rhys to enjoy during the day.

“What a fantastic effort by our schools to celebrate the Welsh language and to kickstart their Language Charter journey,” said Cllr Cris Tomos, Cabinet Member for the Environment and Welsh Language.

“I wish everybody a great, fun-filled day.”
