Llanbedr Church in Wales School recently celebrated the approach of the holiday by holding an Easter Extravaganza .  The celebrations kicked off with an Easter bonnet parade where the children had a chance to show their colourful creations.  They displayed scores of beautiful and original bonnets covered in chicks, bunnies and flowers.

The Vale of Grwyney Community Council entered into the Easter fun and set a competition for the pupils to draw or paint a picture of  a building or landmark in the Vale.  Community Councillor John Morris and Councillor Dean Christy who attended the event explained:

The Community Council wanted to encourage the children to carefully think about the area in which they live, to explore the countryside and take time to appreciate the history and beauty of the many dwellings and structures we are lucky enough to have here in The Vale….   We were not disappointed. The winning entry was an impressive drawing of Grwyne Fawr Reservoir, one of the highest dams in Britain, built in the remote heart of the Black Mountains.   We were certainly impressed by all the inspiring young artists.  Congratulations to all! “

Mrs Kathryn Marshall, Acting Head teacher stated, ‘ Our Easter Extravaganza was a huge success and I would like to thank everyone who helped out and supported the event.  The children did a fantastic job at organising and running their stalls and we raised over £800 before match funding from Barclays’
