THEY’RE not short on am­bi­tion at Five Roads School . . .

Which is why they pushed the boat out for a grand con­cert fea­tur­ing the school’s proud his­tory and its am­bi­tions for the fu­ture.

The fu­ture is cer­tainly rosy for the school as a new £4.1 mil­lion school is be­ing con­structed in the vil­lage.

The look back at the past was elo­quently done, per­formed in both Welsh and English by school pupils.

The con­cert was very much a ‘mixed me­dia’ event – fea­tur­ing For up­dates, changes, al­ter­ations — email jour­nal. [email protected]­di­awales.co.uk.

Ffwrnes The­atre was packed for the con­cert, which fea­tured ev­ery avail­able child from the school and plenty of guest stars.

Côr Glan­nau’r Gwen­draeth, The Phil Har­mon­ics and Côr Meibion Porth Ty­wyn Burry Port Male Voice Choir were the spe­cial guests.

The show­stop­per solo per­for­mance came from mezzo so­prano Eil­rys My­fanwy Davies.

One of the video link mes­sages was from Sam Evans, a for­mer pupil of the school who was the win­ner of TV’s Big Brother show in 2013.

The com­pere for the evening was Ra­dio Cymru’s Marc Griffiths.

You couldn’t fault the show for lack­ing am­bi­tion.

The only down­side was the run­ning time. At three and three­quar­ter hours, most adults were ready for bed. The chil­dren, to give them credit, were im­pec­ca­bly be­haved through­out, right up un­til Hen Wlad fy Nhadau.
