Success is achieved at the Eisteddfod festival

Lyle Robson achieves 1st place out of 22000 entries

Marist Brothers Linmeyer took part in The Alberton Eisteddfod which ran from July to early September with the Honours Evening and Gala Evening taking place on 8 September 2016 and 13 September 2016 respectively. At the Honours Evening, the various Items winners are announced (this is the person who has achieved the highest mark for their item, but their mark must be above 90%).

At the Gala Evening, the Section winners were announced. To be considered a section winner, a candidate must enter 4 or more items and the candidate with the highest average from their top 4 items, is then considered the Section winner. This year there were more than 22 000 entries and only 22 candidates were crowned Section winners. The Section winners were ranked 1st – 3rd place, with 1st place receiving a Floating trophy, prize money, a certificate and a medal.
