Mold schoolchildren celebrate Owain Glyndwr

Mold schoolchildren celebrate Owain GlyndwrYoungsters at a Mold school explored their heritage with a medieval-themed day to celebrate the man who first united Wales as a nation.

Pupils of Ysgol Glanrafon spent the day learning about Owain Glyndwr on Thursday, September 16 – 610 years after he was proclaimed Prince of Wales.

“For the last four or five years we’ve been celebrating the day and trying to teach the children about their heritage,” said headteacher Llinos Mary Jones.

One of the parents, Michael Roberts, took his own collection of historic artefacts from The Age of Welsh Princes into the school for the day, and all 289 pupils got the chance to inspect them.

Miss Jones said: “It was a very good day, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

“Some of the children made banners and we also had a medieval banquet – it was great fun.”
