The story, which was reported locally, caused some strong feelings at the time amongst some friends of mine (teachers and parents, but I don't think of that particular school). I didn't post it on here, as I don't have a strong view, for or against. I can sympathise with both view points.
I think that the problem might arise from the small population of the area, which in effect is a village, hence only one senior school?. Some friends said that although they supported the growth of the Welsh Language and loved it, they thought that in their words "legislating" (making Welsh compulsory) wouldn't be the best way to encourage the use of Welsh amongst the wider range of children. I appreciate that was an exaggeration.
I hope I've got it right. In fairness, I wasn't able to fully understand the story as it was on one of those internet news papers whose adverts slow down my computer to a crawl. So I only had my friends comments to go on.
