A full array of activities had been arranged for them such as scripting and simultaneous translation as well as presentations by representatives from S4C, Afanti, and former pupils that are now part of the team at Yr Egin. It was an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the different types of careers that can be done through the medium of Welsh here in Carmarthen.鈥
