Eisteddfod

The cultural highlight of the school year is our annual Eisteddfod to celebrate St David’s Day. During the build-up to the Eisteddfod our pupils enjoyed taking part in a variety of competitions – writing stories and poems, handwriting, art, recitation, singing and dancing; all of which culminates in the St David’s Day celebrations.

The day traditionally ends with the ‘Crowning of the Bard’, a traditional ceremony performed across Wales over many generations. 

Each year we invite back the previous winner of the Bardd to present and hand over the Bardic wooden chair to the new Bardd. It has become a tradition that each previous winner writes a new poem which is passed on with the chair.

 

Below you can see the previous winners and the short poems which they wrote to attach to the chair.
