TEACHING WELSH HISTORY: A MISSED OPPORTUNITY

Dyfodol i’r Iaith has expressed its disappointment that the Government has rejected one of the recommendations of the the Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committe regarding the teaching of Welsh history within the new curriculum.

On behalf of Dyfodol, Wyn Thomas said:

“Dyfodol i’r Iaith regrets the Government’s decision to reject the Committee’s recommendation that all pupils who study history in Wales receive consistent, standard information. A cost-free opportunity to emphasise the importance of the Welsh language to the nation’s history has been lost

“Ensuring an awareness of the language’s importance would, of course, have been a valuable contribution to Government’s aim of ensuring a million Welsh speakers by 2050.”
