The Children of Ysgol Bodfeurig and Ysgol Tregarth spent 8 days each working on a variety of artistic skills: Writing poetry and raps, making and moving puppets, painting and sculpting, drumming and dancing, filming and recording.
See a short documentary video
of the project and a photo-stream
from Ysgol Bodfeurig.
Together we have funnelled the creative process into creating an origin myth of the “Cwtch” Character, the world in which he lives, his friends and his favourite past times.
This launch project has been funded by the Arts Council of Wales through their “Creative Collaborations” scheme. The project Manager – Colin Daimond – is working in partnership with Learning Links International CIC, who have provided the organisational structure needed to deliver the project.
We hope, with further development, Cwtch will go on to other schools to develop stories, performances and other education products.
A magical egg fell from the heavens,
A flash of light comes out from the egg and Cwtch is born,
Hatching from the egg with wings,
but, he falls into the rainbow river.
An old man finds him, feeds him
And carries him to Ysgol Bodfeurig.
The children of Bodfeurig name Cwtch “Cwtch”.
With love and cuddles from Bodfeurig his wings grew bigger,
and he grew up into a strong, friendly, brave and caring dragon.
He flew off to the island of imagination
and visits Ysgol Bodfeurig/Tregarth every year on the 17th of March.
