This year, those who successfully passed their examinations were able to celebrate their success by collecting their certificates at a special ceremony, held in Lys Kernow. More than 70 students and guests attended the afternoon, which was organised by Kesva an Taves Kernewek. The ceremony was not only the first of its kind in Cornwall, but also, in addition to the exams run by the Kesva itself, celebrated the first group of successes in the new Asset examinations, a nationally accredited scheme now available to Cornish.
The afternoon was introduced by Chair of the Kesva Polin Prys. MAGA manager Jenefer Lowe spoke of the importance of celebrating achievement in Cornish, while Education Officer Mike Tresidder explained the new Asset system. Certificates were presented by the Grand Bard, Mick Paynter, who thanked all the candidates for their work and support for the language.
