On Thursday the 14th of July 2016, Theatr na nÓg took part at Ysgol Bryngwyn’s annual Iaith ar Waith event. The event was organised by the Welsh department for the students of Year 9 and aimed to inform the pupils on how Welsh is used in the workplace and the importance of bilingualism. Our Production Manager, Geraint Chinnock, represented the Company at the event.
“As someone who was brought up in a non Welsh speaking family but was fortunate to be educated through the medium of Welsh, it was a great to have the opportunity to share, with the next generation, my personal experiences of working for a bilingual company like Theatr na nÓg and to highlight the potential career opportunities available to those who can communicate in both languages”
As well as other prominent Welsh/ Bilingual organisations at the event - The National Assembly of Wales, Coleg Sir Gar, Urdd, Telesgop…, contributions were also given by a familiar face to the company, the wonderful actor/director - Ioan Hefin.
