Ysgol Santes Helen la Daily Post:

Plans to merge the world’s only Welsh-speaking Catholic primary school with another which delivers its classes ten miles away in English, were last night criticised as “cruel” and “unhelpful”.

Children at Ysgol Santes Helen in Caernarfon are taught in Welsh, but it is proposed the school be federalised with Ysgol Ein Harglwyddes (Our Lady’s) in Bangor, under Gwynedd’s controversial primary schools shake-up.

Last night Councillor Richard Morris Jones, a governor at Santes Helen, said: “The school is highly regarded as an important and natural part of our community in Caernarfon.

“It is quite literally the only Welsh language medium Catholic school in the whole world."
