SIXTH form pupils at a school on Anglesey are set to help commemorate an important part of their Town's history through the power of the internet.

Students from Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones in Amlwch have been taking part in the WiciMôn Project, joining forces with the Town's Copper Kingdom museum to share historical information on online encyclopaedia, y Wicipedia Cymraeg.

This year marks the 250th anniversary of when copper was discovered by Roland Puw on Amlwch's Mynydd Parys and pupils at the Syr Thomas Jones are keen to help mark the special occasion.

Pupils have been learning the skills needed to create articles for the open website, and they intend to work with the museum to produce stories about one of the most prosperous eras in the Town's history.

The project, which is led by Menter Iaith Môn, in partnership with Wici Cymru, will run workshops on the Island with young people and members of the wider community.

The sixth form pupils will use the information available at the museum as well as their own research work to create articles which will enrich the Wikipedia pages.

Copper Kingdom manager Elfed Rowlands said: "It's absolutely important that we keep this huge story in our blood forever.

"Through a source like Wikipedia, and working with the young people of the area, the history should will become more accessible to everyone."
