Success for Mostyn at the Middle School Eisteddfod / Llwyddiant i Mostyn yn Eisteddfod yr Ysgol Ganol

On Wednesday 5 March, our Middle School pupils gathered together in the school hall for our annual Middle School Eisteddfod. The pupils eagerly await this time of year when they can celebrate and embrace Welsh culture; both pupils and teachers have been working hard for months in preparation of our much loved afternoon of music, literary performances, celebration and friendly competition. Pupils competed in numerous competitions, ranging from stage competitions including Welsh and English recitation and solo instrumental competitions to homework competitions across the subject range. Homework competitions included designing a poster on a Welsh scientist and a French poster about their family, to name only a couple. It was a close competition, but this year, the winning shield moves from the house of St Davids, our winners for the past 2 years to our new winners; Mostyn!

Winners include Emily H in R13C for her captivating recitation of a Welsh poem ‘Pitsa’ and Harry and Holly J (both in R12E) for their equally impressive Art pieces. Harry created a mesmerising 2 foot dragon from papier maché, while Holly decided to bake a dragon-shaped cake for the competition!

The main award of the ceremony goes to Morgan R in R12L as he was crowned Bard of the Eisteddfod. Morgan was accompanied by Mrs Emms and Miss McManus to his chair on the stage, where he was draped in our national Welsh flag and presented with his certificate and prize before the formal ceremony closed with Morgan walking around his audience, as they congratulated and praised him for his exceptional achievement!

Llongyfarchiadau Morgan! Congratulations Morgan!

Miss McManus.
