Eisteddfod Ysgol Iau / Junior Eisteddfod
On Monday March 2nd, our Junior pupils gathered together in the school hall for our annual celebration of Welsh culture. I would like to take this time to commend both pupils and teachers for their continuous hard work over many months in preparation of our much loved day 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. It was a close competition, but this year, the winning house was De La Salle!
Winners include Namitha P (R11K) for her wonderfully accurate Maths competition entry and Kavin D (R11T) for his impressive musical performance.
The main award of the ceremony goes to Christina L (R11T) as she was crowned Bard of the Eisteddfod, alongside her runners up Ella E and Eleri R, both of R11T. Christina took to her grand chair on the stage, where she was draped in our national Welsh flag and presented with her certificate and prize before the formal ceremony closed with all of the Juniors proudly singing our Welsh national anthem!
Llongyfarchiadau Christina! Congratulations Christina!
