CogUrdd Penygloddfa 2022

The first round of the CogUrdd took place at Ysgol Penygloddfa this week, with an impressive 34 Key Stage 2 pupils entering to see who could construct Penygloddfa’s finest fruit kebab. The level of competition was extremely high, with pupils being judged on categories such as their attention to cleanliness and hygiene, the organisation of their workspace, time-keeping and the overall presentation of their dish. It was a very difficult final decision for our guest judge Mrs Latham, in fact, the standard of the entries was so high that deliberation over the overall winner went on for some time – leaving our budding chefs with a tense wait to see who came out on top.

Finally though, the candidates were narrowed down to a top three.

In 3rd place was Faye Evans of Dosbarth Y Don with her immaculately presented effort, which featured a raspberry and blueberry dip.

A close 2nd was Hollie Davies from Dosbarth Seren with her impressive ‘Rainbow Peacock’ design.

But in 1st place, with his amazing ‘Cebabs Enfys Ffrwythau Ioan efo dip iogwrt ffrwythau trofannol’ was Ioan Rees of Dosbarth Afallen.

Llongyfarchiadau Ioan, who now has the opportunity to move forward into Round 2 of the competition, where contestants will repeat their fruit kebab recipe whilst also cooking a stir-fry. Pob lwc!

As you can see from the pictures, we had a great deal of fun but we would also like to thank all pupils who took part for the huge amount effort they put into their entries and for creating such a wonderfully positive atmosphere in the hall on the night. Da iawn pawb!
