Rotary Club

OVER the past few years the Rotary Club of Mawddach have arranged for every Year 6 pupil in the Mawddach and Barmouth catchment areas to receive an Osborne Dictionary before leaving their primary school.

This is because the Mawddach Club together with many Rotary Clubs around the country support the aim of encouraging literacy throughout the world.

In many overseas areas this may take the form of supplying classroom materials and such basics as exercise books and writing materials. In the UK the provision of dictionaries encourages pupils to find more ways of expressing their thoughts.

The dictionaries were given to pupils in Ysgol y Traeth, Barmouth and satellite primary schools of Bro Idris in Llanelltyd, Dolgellau, and Dinas Mawddwy.

As well as looking forward to using their dictionaries in their new schools, some of the pupils were also getting all their classmates to sign them so that they would have a permanent reminder of their primary school friends.
