Ysgol Rhiwabon is celebrating Welsh history and culture by holding yearly Eisteddfod competitions for its students.
A Celebration of Culture
Ysgol Rhiwabon has held numerous student Eisteddfod events over the past years, which are a celebration of Welsh culture through music, song, poetry and language. Ysgol Rhiwabon’s most recent Eisteddfod was in July.
The historic ceremony was with the school’s sword and chair, which date back well over 100 years, keeping the tradition alive. The four competing houses Wynnstay, Madoc, Offa and Glyndwr, entered offstage and onstage competitions to win points to secure the house cup.
Competing students are grouped into diverse categories, from Welsh poetry and script recital, drama, challenge solo, piano solo to even designing their own castles and recital of mathematics Pi!
The school’s Curriculum Leader for Welsh, Miss R Williams said: “The Eisteddfod is a fantastic experience for younger learners at the school who really embraced the Welsh language and the long standing Eisteddfodd traditions”. “It’s important that we grow these school cultural events and we look forward to building on the success of this year’s Eisteddfod”.
