Ysgol Eifionydd

…de la Daily Post:

A teacher who has inspired the next generation of Welsh speakers yesterday spoke of the secret behind her success.

Carys Lake set up the only school of its kind for teaching Welsh to English speakers in Porthmadog and was yesterday named Wales’s best at encouraging the language. She revealed the key to encouraging children to have a passion for the language was a combination of “hands on” rap, singing and role play, to immerse children in Welsh.

Carys helped to found a centre at Ysgol Eifionydd, which teaches children aged 11-14 who have moved to Gwynedd. Canolfan Iaith Uwchradd Gwynedd is the only school of its kind in Wales.
