Urdd – Urdd Gobaith Cymru is a voluntary youth organisation. It provides opportunities for children and young people to take part in a range of experiences through the medium of Welsh. The Urdd was established in 1922 to give children and young people in Wales opportunities to learn and socialize in Welsh.
Some of the activities that children can be involved in are
- Urdd Eisteddfod which include singing, recitation, drama and musical instruments
- Urdd Arts and Crafts Competition
- Various sports, such as netball, football, rugby and swimming
- Dancing competitions
- Cooking competitions
- Llangrannog residential outdoor pursuits centre
The school has been actively participating in a range of Urdd activities and has already been successful in various competitions. We hope to build the momentum and give every child the opportunity to experience being apart of this incredible youth movement.
The Urdd are offering fun and free resources for parents. The website features education worksheets, craft and cooking activities, stories and resources, for first and second language Welsh speakers, primary and secondary pupils. Please visit urdd.cymru website then click on ‘Joio yn y tŷ ‘.
