Tonypandy Community College celebrated St David’s Day by holding a traditional Eisteddfod for Key Stage 3 Students. The Eisteddfod took place all day and a variety of acts were seen including, Drama, Musical Instruments, Dancing and Singing.

Each student that took part was competing to gain points for their house. The winners were as follows:

Dancing: Tŷ Porffor – Katie Crichton and Aylish Simmonds
Singing: Tŷ Melyn – Eve Tudbull and Stephanie Morgan
Acting: Tŷ Coch – Dewi Harris, Brandon Tudbull, Zoe Arundell, Lauren James and Mitchel Richards
Musical Item: Tŷ Llwyd – Ryan Jones and Thomas Miles

Students were also spoken to by the Fire Service who came along to promote their new project on preventing Grass Fires. More information can be found at

A big ‘Da Iawn’ to all students that took part on the day and also students who took part in the subject specific competitions that took place on the run up to the Eisteddfod, who also earned points for their relevant houses.

The day ended in an exciting finale which included the announcement of the results and the National Anthem. The final winning house was Tŷ Coch, followed closely by Tŷ Oren in 2nd place and Tŷ Llwyd in 3rd place!

A huge thanks to all staff that took part in organising an extremely successful Eisteddfod 2010. Diolch!
