Pafiliwn Enfawr, Perfformiad Enfawr  Grand Pavilion, Grand Performance

Dancing and drama, hymns and arias, there was something for everyone to enjoy during Brynteg’s Annual Eisteddfod, held for the first time at the Grand Pavilion Porthcawl.

The exciting atmosphere combined with the vibrant Team colours made the event extremely special and has already inspired further students to take part next year.

“I will be on stage next year after watching the Eisteddfod this year” Daisy

Cestyll Coety, Newydd, Ewenni and Ogwr all battled fiercely to become the overall Eisteddod winner under the watchful eye of their Team Captains and Leaders.

It was a thrilling competition to the end with Ogwr really making it difficult for the other teams. However, it was Castell Newydd who were crowned the winners after their superb Team choir performance. Llongyfarchiadau Castell Newydd.

Students were able to demonstrate a broad range of talents by competing off and on stage, with the new arrangements allowing all Key Stage 3 to come together as one. They were encouraged to take part in various ways, sometimes working across year groups. The collaboration between the year groups was truly inspiring, especially for the younger and sometimes nervous students.

“Even though it was scary performing in front of people, we had fun and that’s all that matters. It was a great Eisteddfod” – Layla

The traditional chairing ceremony ‘Seremoni Cadeirio’ was a particularly proud moment with Archdruid Mr Tyler announcing our 2019 Bardd as Jude Williamson. Da iawn Jude!

The student’s behaviour was impeccable, and we are very proud of how respectful and enthusiastic they all were. The Team choirs’ renditions of Calon Lân certainly raised the roof.

A special mention must go to Mr Tyler and his squad who cycled 175KM on February 21st in aid of the Eisteddofod –  Ymdrech  arbennig o dda!
