Music scholar Tegid achieves success at Eisteddfod Chwilog

A Music scholar at Rydal Penrhos claimed another competition milestone to add to his growing list of exceptional achievements.

Tegid Goodman-Jones, a Year 11 pupil at the school, took the stage at the recent Eisteddfod Chwilog on Saturday, January 19, which saw him compete against some of the best singers from across the region.

The talented vocalist produced another stunning effort that saw him come away with the Most Promising Competitor Under 25 Award, which is the latest in a series of outstanding accolades the pupil has attained during what has been a glittering young career to date.

He also scooped the same distinction at the Eisteddfod Treuddyn in November, and the National Eisteddfod winner has a busy few months ahead due to GCSE examinations and a host of co-curricular activities.

Tegid is set to play a huge role in the upcoming Dramatic Society production of Les Misérables in March, and he recently gained further representative honours as part of the North Wales Hockey side at a high-profile indoor competition held at London’s Olympic Park.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “Tegid is an enormously talented singer who really strives to improve on a daily basis.

“This makes him an absolute pleasure to work with, and he is thoroughly deserving of all the success that comes his way.

“Hopefully this is a trend that can continue long into the future and we will strive to ensure that his goals are met.”
