WITH plenty of stiff competition, Leeton Public School managed to excel in several sections and categories at this year's eisteddfod.
During the course of the year the students have been fine tuning their vocal skills, dance performances and rehearsing their instruments in readiness for the 2019 Leeton Eisteddfod.
The kindergarten to year 2 dance group picked up second place for their Fly Like a Bird performance, while the primary group was awarded first place for their high-energy performance Shake a Tail Feather.
When it came to singing, kindergarten picked up a second with their Baby Beluga rendition, while years three and four won their section.
The school's choir also picked up a first place when they sang Wild Mountainside and Firefly. In the primary school choir conducted by a student section, Tom Cooper conducted the group in their rendition of Away From the Roll of the Sea to place second.
In the juvenile choir section, the years 3 and 4 group also finished second.
There were also several other first place performances for the school throughout the music and choir section, with staff impressed by the students' talent and hard work in the lead up.
Assistant principal Catherine Tabain was proud of the students.
"The staff at Leeton Public School recognise the value of a strong creative arts program within the school," she said.
"Another very obvious benefit has been witnessing the pure enjoyment obtained by performing to an audience and the increased confidence."
