We asked our pupils for their view when choosing a name for our new school. We were delighted that they chose the name of Waldo Williams Primary School. Waldo Williams was the great visionary poet from Pembrokeshire and he was born in Haverfordwest. He was a kind and generous man that spent many teachers teaching in Pembrokeshire. The children were given a chance to do a lot of research on Waldo. They were inspired by Waldo because of his passion for teaching and learning and love of Pembrokeshire.

A portrait for our school

What greater way to commemorate Waldo Williams than to create our own portrait to proudly display at our school?

Pupils worked alongside the talented artist Nathan Wyburn for four days making unusual art by using a variety of materials to paint with. The final collage of Waldo Williams was created by using images of the children hard at work to create the final portrait.  Waldo’s portrait will be proudly displayed in our new school building.

We also worked with talented artist Rhiannon Roberts to design and create a wonderful mural of our school within the locality. We researched significant and important buildings in Haverfordwest to include in our final design. We also made sure that we included a reference to Waldo Williams to link to our new school name.
