WREXHAM youngsters have sent a message of peace and goodwill to children across the world.
Secondary schools from across the town came together to record the message for the first time in 83 years as part of the good citizenship and international activities of the Urdd.
Schools have always recorded a message, but never together. They gathered at the Guildhall to make the recording, which was on the theme of Love Thy Neighbour, focussing on Shelter Cymru and the effects of homelessness on families and children.
'For the first time our schools have come together to send the annual message of peace and goodwill,' said chief education officer Merfyn Lloyd Jones.
'It will be transmitted on the worldwide web in 16 languages. It's a noble theme and one which should raise awareness of the plight of other young people.'
This year's has been put on the internet at www.bbc.co.uk
During the 1950's the Urdd took responsibility for publishing the annual message of goodwill.
This year pupils also submitted their reflection and poems on the theme of the message and prizes were awarded for the best ones.
