The first round of the Urdd Eisteddfod took place on Saturday 18th March at Ysgol Bryn Tabor, Coedpoeth, with a record number of children entering competitions this year.
Madras were represented in the Solo Recitation, Cerdd Dant, Parti Unsain, Group Recitation, Percussion and Woodwind competitions – a fantastic effort. Da iawn!
The Cerdd Dant Party, Group Recitation, two Parti Unsain, two Solo Recitation, a saxophonist and drummer went on to represent the Maelor, Glyn Valley and some of the Wrexham cluster in the county round on April 1st in Wrexham. What an achievement for a small school on the border!
All the children gave a fantastic performance which resulted in the Cerdd Dant Party and our very own drummer going forward to represent the counties of Wrexham and Flint in the finals of the Urdd Eisteddfod at the end of May in South Wales.
The Urdd Eisteddfod is one of the biggest youth festivals in Europe. This will be a wonderful opportunity for the children not only to take part in such an important welsh cultural event and experience the welsh language first hand, but to have fun and make lasting memories.
Some of the Urdd Club members have been busy with arts and crafts (under the watchful and expert eye of Mrs Moulton) and we eagerly await the results of those competitions.
The last Urdd Club meeting for the year will be on May 16th.
Congratulations to our Cerdd Dant Parti and Rhiannon for qualifying for the finals of the Urdd Eisteddfod 2016.
