A regional daily is publishing five supplements this week to mark St David’s Day.
The day is celebrated in Wales each 1 March, and the Echo photographed hundreds of classes of children at schools throughout Cardiff over the past month to prepare for the event.
The first of the 16-page supplements appeared in Monday’s edition with the last due to appear today.
Editor Tryst Williams said: “St David’s Day is always a great occasion on which to celebrate our shared identity – and this year now has even more reason to cheer thanks to this great new initiative.
“It’s fantastic to see how much children, parents and teachers have got behind this scheme in its first year and I hope the results will bring a smile to the faces of readers everywhere.”
