The library has been given a new name ‘Y Copa’ meaning The Summit. The concept behind the name is that learning to read can be a challenge and hard work, but it will take you on a magical journey and if you persevere, you can reach the top and enjoy all the wonders that books can offer, exploring worlds, opening minds and expanding imaginations.
To celebrate the new name and to encourage students to come to Y Copa to browse through books and find a story, local artist Ffion Roberts-Drakley has created a mural for the library wall. The painting depicts a climber reaching a summit and includes a rhyme written especially for Y Copa by Mrs Luned Davies Parry, (Welsh teacher and Bilingualism Co-ordinator), that reads:
Tyrd ar daith hudol i’r Copa,
I bori drwy stori a chwilota,
I ryfeddu at y trysor rhwng y cloriau
Ac i agor dy feddwl i’r rhyfeddodau.
Artist Ffion Roberts-Drakley recently visited the school to present Y Copa’s new mural to Mrs Stella Edwards, the Literacy Mentor and School Librarian.
