Julie Sullivan, Head Teacher of the London Welsh School, said: “Living in London but still feeling part of Wales is an important cultural feature of the London Welsh School.
“In Wales it’s a child’s rite of passage to compete in this traditional competition and it’s amazing to see how the children in our school develop their confidence, language and performing skills as a result. The children look forward to competing each year and have lots of fun doing so.”
