Welsh is a subject which is accepted by every college and examining body, and is a medium which is used in all sorts of occupations. To speak it is an acquisition but to have academic qualifications in it is too precious an acquisition to ignore.

The aim is to make each child master and use Welsh both in writing and speaking as far as ability and circumstances will allow , providing awareness of the literary and cultural richness of the language and a feeling of the heritage inherent in it.
