"WELL, we don't care what mama don't allow, gonna' play that music anyhow," was the chorus ringing from the South Grafton Public School choir and play that music they did.

In fact all primary schools across the Valley from Harwood to Nymboida rocked the stage in this year's Grafton Eisteddfod held at the South Grafton High School hall.

Grafton Eisteddfod schools day coordinator Diana Welch said that both days of performances had been a great success for the schools involved.

"This has been a really great experience once again," she said. "All the kids seem to enjoy themselves and the performances have been great."

Troy Castle, who was filling the adjudicating shoes of Katie Rutledge on day two, said the eisteddfod was a fantastic event.

"I had a great time," he said. "The kids were great."
