All Welsh education backed for Ysgol Llangennech

Plans to remove English stream education at a Carmarthenshire school have been backed.

Carmarthenshire council voted in favour making Ysgol Llangennech, near Llanelli, a Welsh medium primary from September.

The move will not affect current pupils who can continue to learn in English.

A bitter debate took place in County Hall on Wednesday, with 38 councillors voting in favour of the proposal and 20 against.

Ysgol Llangennech parents Manon Williams and Michaela Beddows were for and against the move.
