Eisteddfod

 In recent years, we have held an annual High Down Junior School Eisteddfod. Children from each year group are encouraged to enter and represent their House - singing, playing instruments, reciting poetry and dancing. We will also have Eisteddfod competitions for poetry, handwriting  and artwork.

The week before the final each Year Group will select the children to represent each house. The Eisteddfod is a lovely opportunity for children to share and showcase their talents and creativity. Unfortunately, we are unable to invite parents to attend as the hall is pretty full with 400 children and staff!

House points are awarded to all who take part and the winning house will be presented with our Dragon Trophy

Children can enter as many competitions as they wish and every entry will earn house points towards winning the Dragon Trophy.

 

Please see below for results of the competition.
