Shwmae awards night at Pembrokeshire College


It was an exciting night at Pembrokeshire College last night as they held the annual Shwmae awards. The award night, which is held every year on Shwmae day is a night to celebrate Welsh in the county is in it’s fifth year.

During the night, 11 prizes were awarded to individuals across the county from schools, staff, parents, businesses and other organisations. The top entrants from each category each made a video clip which can be viewed on the Shwmae Sir Benfro twitter and facebook pages.

A new award was awarded by Pembrokeshire College for the staff member who made the most effort to learn Welsh under the Work Welsh project. It’s fantastic to see how much of an affect the Work Welsh project has made during it’s pilot year as we work towards ensuring another successful year.

The three who were shortlisted for the prize were Roger Phillips, Susan Whisby and the Teaching Assistants team. Look at the video clips below to decide on your winner!
