Success for Mostyn at the Junior Eisteddfod / Llwyddiant i Mostyn yn Eisteddfod yr Ysgol Gynradd

On Friday March 7th, our Junior pupils gathered together in the school hall for a day of music, literary performances, celebration and friendly competition as we held our annual Eisteddfod. The pupils eagerly await this time of year when they can celebrate and embrace Welsh culture. Pupils competed in a variety of competitions including Welsh and English recitations, instrumental performances and homework competitions like creating a 3D castle and designing a Celtic Knot. It was a close competition this year, but the winning shield was awarded to the house of Mostyn. Winners included Bute and St David’s for the R8 Welsh Choir Competition, Ella E in R10 for her captivating recitation of a Welsh poem, and R11K for their enchanting performance of a traditional Welsh nursery rhyme.

The highest award of the ceremony goes to Holly C in R11 as she was crowned Bard of the Eisteddfod. Holly said afterwards ‘I really enjoyed the Eisteddfod, as usual. It was filled with music and a lot of nice competitions. I was so surprised when Miss McManus called out my name as bard. It was awesome!’ Runners up in the Bard Competition were Luca A and Ben A.

All teachers would like to thank the pupils for their hard work and efforts leading up to the Eisteddfod, and as Pannu N said ‘Mrs Thompson was shedding a tear when the R11s sang Gary Barlow’s song ‘Sing’.  We are all very proud of our Junior School pupils.

Llongyfarchiadau pawb! Congratulations everyone!

Miss McManus.
