Natur ein Bro
The project was lucky enough to become involved in the Natur ein Bro project through our association with CCW. This is an annual project, which involves local schools to the National Eisteddfod site (this year the schools were all from the Y Bala area). The schools visited the LIFE Project at Lake Vyrnwy in May and June. The visiting schools were:
Ysgol OM Edwards
Ysgol Bro Tryweryn
Ysgol y Ffridd
Ysgol y Parc
Ysgol Maes Hyfryd
Ysgol Beuno Sant
Ysgol Bro Tegid
In total, 110 children visited the project as part of Natur ein Bro. Whilst at Lake Vyrnwy the children learnt more about the importance of peat bogs to the environment and were able to look at how the project is restoring this habitat.
The children then went back into school and worked with the Welsh National Children’s Poet, Twm Morys to create a piece of poetry. During the National Eisteddfod week, the children performed their excellent poetry in the Babell Lên (the Literature Tent) on the Sunday of the Eisteddfod.
The children were featured on the S4C coverage of the Eisteddfod and were mentioned by Gerallt Pennant on Radio Cymru and members of staff from RSPB and CCW on BBC Radio Cymru during the week.
