Kathy began learning Welsh six years ago and during that time her success has been vast. Last year she reached the final round of Learner of the Year at the National Eisteddfod in Denbigh. She is now completely at home communicating in Welsh. She takes advantage of every opportunity to use Welsh outside the class, at church, school and in the community.
The learners of the siawns am sgwrs class at Strade School were also delighted in winning the group prize “learners of the year”. They are taught by Caryl Clement.
