Cannons Creek sweeps Eisteddfod awards

On Friday 24 November, the Cape Town International Eisteddfod Awards Ceremony was held at the Waves Theatre. Cannons Creek Independent Primary School won overall GOLD this year in the Cape Town Eisteddfod in the Junior and Senior group performance categories. Additionally Grade 6 pupil, Leah Kooyman won GOLD for the 12-14-year-old Best Solo Poem Performance. Grade 6 pupil Quinn Baker also received GOLD for coming first in the U12 Poetry Creative Writing category (received his official award at an earlier Prize-giving). The Grade 5 and Grade 6 groups were invited to perform their winning pieces, as well as receive the awards. The poem which Leah chose to recite at the Eisteddfod competition held earlier this year was “WHY ME”. Leah captured the audience’s hearts as she recited it with passion and feeling.

“After a year of hard work and dedication it feels extremely rewarding to end the year on such a high note. To all the pupils we say a big congratulations on this big achievement.” – Ms Annique Bester, Drama Teacher (and script-writer).
