St David's Day 2023
We had a fantastic day on March 1st celebrating St David's Day. Our eisteddfod was a celebration of our Welsh language and Culture and all the children's performances made everyone really proud. Our special guest judges, Mrs Walker and Mrs James, were blown away by the whole school and their enthusiasm. The competition entries were of an exceptional standard and as always we are grateful for the support from home for the craft, art, history research and home cooking entries. Mr Jones arranged a special guest visitor, Wales and Dragon's rugby player, Will Reed who gave us an inspirational talk and we asked him lots of questions about how he got to play at the level he is today. We finished the day off with Gwyl Plant dancing on the yard (until it rained) and a rousing rendition of our National Anthem.
