Cape Town Eisteddfod Drama Results

It was one of the Drama Society’s goals for 2016 to participate in the Cape Town Eisteddfods to show the girls talent and skill and to use it as a learning experience to help enrich the girls who participated in the competition.

We had several girls ranging from Grades Eight to Matrics competing and they all worked extremely hard. The Eisteddfod took place during the exams, but the girls did not falter in their commitment. The girls grew close as a group and offered support and encouragement to each other, which was wonderful to see. The seniors and juniors worked well together and bonded over their love of theatre. The girls chose the categories they wished to enter as well as the pieces they wished to perform. Expert direction, support, guidance and encouragement were offered by Mrs Glover throughout the whole process.

These results are an excellent reflection of hard work and dedication:

  • Shakeerah Meyer received high honours for her monologue
  • Bella Draper received high honours for her monologue
  • Lesley Bredekamp received a diploma for her monologue
  • Zoë van Reenen received high honours for her monologue
  • Daniella Alves , Megan Mulholland  and Savannah Steyn received honours for our group dramatic extract

Two of the girls who do drama outside of school with Spotlight Drama Studio also did Wynberg proud.  Ollie Jenkins received a diploma for both her creative advert and monologue and Rachelle Issa received a diploma for her work as well. Claire van Tonder performed a Duologue with a student from outside of Wynberg and who is a student at Mrs Glover’s Studio. They were awarded High Honours for their performance.

It has been a few years since Wynberg Girls’ High School was represented at the Cape Town Eisteddfod and though the aim was to use the competition as a learning experience , it is clear that the girls lived up to the Wynberg standard and did remarkably well. We hope this will encourage more students to participate next year.
