SCHOOL-CHILDREN from west Wales were among those taking part in a flash mob who gathered to sing the Welsh National Anthem in New York City recently.

Pupils from Ysgol Bro Myrddin and Ysgol Bro Dinefwr in Carmarthenshire, Llanishen High School in Cardiff, Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni, Lampeter, and Aberaeron took part.

The video was originally uploaded to the Visit Wales Facebook page, and has proved popular gaining thousands of hits.

According to local news media, the invitation was also extended on social media to Welsh people living in the city and the spectacle started at about 00:00 GMT Tuesday.

It was arranged by Dr Huw Griffiths, a teacher at Ysgol Bro Myrddin, who said he wanted to do “something crazy” after realising so many school pupils would be in New York at the same time.

We thought this video was too good not to share!
