We are a dedicated group of Classics teachers at all levels of education who share the gratitude we feel for the opportunities we had to study Classics. We want to ensure that the next generation get the opportunity to have the same experience and enjoyment.
The choice of the name CWCH directly links to our main aim of navigating the ocean of education and connecting schools throughout Wales to promote the study of Classical culture, history, and language in schools.
The impact that Latin has on literacy is apparent. In the light of the Welsh Government's ambitious idea for a "bilingual plus one" nation, we aim to encourage Latin in primary schools, to then be extended into secondary schools and the Welsh Baccalaureate; aided by the creation of school hubs.
We wish to create a forum for Classics teachers, to encourage them, support their work, and create a united team of dedicated Classics teachers across Wales.
If you would like to join our team, please contact Evelien Bracke for information about how you can get involved.
We also collaborate with the Wales Classical Association branches, which offer Classics-related events in their respective areas.
