The Eisteddfod team listened to the pupil voice and went for a hybrid model this year - a mixture of modern and traditional. On Friday 3rd March all pupils participated in a carousel of activities during lessons one to three. The activities were all linked to Wales, Welsh culture and the Welsh language. The activities were: dawnsio gwerin, Welsh bingo, sialens Gymraeg, lolfa fyw (live lounge) and chwaraeon. All activities were thoroughly enjoyed and they gave all pupils the opportunity to participate.
The afternoon started off with some surprise acts from our Lolfa Fyw. Pupils sang along to “Local boy in a photograph” and year 11 girls did a great Abba tribute. We then moved on to our traditional chairing ceremony and crowning ceremony. The titles for these competitions were taken from this year’s National Eisteddfod: “Esgusodion” (Excuses) Welsh Chair and “Pontydd” (Bridges) for the English crown. Charlotte Town won the Welsh chair and Freya Scully won the English crown. Mr Richards OBE, School Governor awarded the girls with their beautiful daffodil crowns.
The last session of the afternoon saw the four houses competing enthusiastically against each other in the Canu Côr competition. This year pupils sang “Yma o Hyd”.
The day ended with the announcement that Tŷ Dewi won Eisteddfod 2023. The scores were based on the day’s competitions and departmental competitions.
Diolch yn fawr i bawb a gymerodd rhan yn Eisteddfod Glan-y-Môr 2023.
