It was an honour to welcome Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Llwyncelyn's very successful school choir to school this week, following their success at the Urdd Eisteddfod and the Songs of Praise 'Choir of the Year' competition. The choir had an opportunity to meet with past Llwyncelyn pupil Chloe Wilson, who was also at the school to talk about her experiences at the New York Academy of Dramatic Arts, and enjoy some refreshments and a chat with Head, Miss Ellis in our café. Llongyfarchiadau blant!

We were very pleased to welcome past pupil Chloe Wilson to school this week. Chloe has recently graduated from the New York Academy of Dramatic Arts. Chloe spoke to our pupils during a special assembly and she also performed a solo. Chloe also met with some of our current Music and Drama students. Listening to Chloe was an inspiration to all, and a reminder to aim high and follow your dreams! We wish Chloe well as she returns to New York next week as a member of the New York Academy Theatre Company. Diolch Chloe!
