A Penarth school finished second in a dance competition at the Urdd National Eisteddfod.

The 25 pupils from Ysgol Pen y Garth took to the stage to represent Cardiff and the Vale, impressing the judging panel with their creative interpretation of a ship named 'Mimosa's voyage to Patagonia in 1865.

The talented dancers, ranging from years 3 to 6, were joined by their families who travelled to Maldwyn, Powys on May 28.

The school has consistently shone in this competition, largely due to the dedicated effort of parent coach, Enfys Emlyn.

Having choreographed the school's dance routines for the past seven years, the pupils' 'Sea' themed performance showed hard work and passion.

Ysgol Pen y Garth’s headteacher, Becca Pugh, shared her pride in the pupils' achievement.

Miss Pugh said: "We're thrilled that our pupils have been recognised on the Urdd's prestigious national stage.

"They thoroughly enjoy dancing and their performance was a joy to behold.

"We're really grateful to Enfys for her commitment and passion, and to the parents for all of their support and encouragement."
