Our seasonal programme continued on December 12th with a carols and mince pies concert for all members of the local community. The event also raised money for Hope House Childrens Hospice.
An overflowing Library, where even standing room was non-existent, saw the students of Ysgol Rhiwabon, under the musical direction of Mrs Sandra Tarver, give a rendition of Christmas items ranging from the new to the old. There were performances from over 25 students ranging from solo singing, choral recitation, to piano and ukulele playing.
Mrs Sandra Tarver, Curriculum Leader Music said:-
“The students’ performances were a credit to them with every performance of the highest quality and showed the level of preparation and dedication from our young people”.
Mrs Melanie Ferron-Evans, Headteacher, in her closing address, said,
‘Credit must be given to the students’ performances today; they were of the highest order and also reflect the work that our Music Department, under Sandra Tarver, undertakes.
As a school steeped in the tradition of the local area for song; we should all be very proud of what we witnessed here. Many performances were of concert hall standard and I have no doubt that many of these students will go on to great things’
