It was standing room only at our Open Evening on Thursday.
This special event in our calendar allows families the opportunity to meet staff, students, and Governors, and to judge first-hand the excellence of the school.
The high level of interest in the school, and all its achievements, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, governors and students, who are very proud of their school.
We work very closely with the local Primary schools to provide excellent transition and induction for Year 6 students. A key highlight of the evening had to be the enthusiastic speeches delivered by four new Year 7 students.
All the parents commented on the enthusiasm of the student volunteers, who took great pride in showcasing their work.
Our Headteacher, Mrs Ferron-Evans, gave a presentation at the start of the evening. As a former student of the school herself, Mrs Ferron-Evans was keen to emphasise the importance of tradition, hard work and community links in ensuring every young person achieves the very best they can. She discussed all the exciting initiatives in the school, which have contributed to the school’s success. Emphasis was also placed on the future, and the opportunities Ysgol Rhiwabon has to offer, both in the school, and its local community.
Speaking later, Mrs Ferron-Evans, said;
“I am really pleased with how our Open Evening went. The level of interest shown in our school has been fantastic and I now look forward to meeting our new intake again.
The school website reflects the historic links we have to the area and I’ve used this to show our strong community focus and how successful our students have been over time.
I was delighted to be able to speak to so many parents, grandparents and friends of the school, face to face during the evening; it was a pleasure, and I would like to thank everyone for their extremely positive comments about the school, and in particular about our students’’.
The Open Evening was extremely well attended by prospective Parents and, reflects the increasing interest in this historic school serving the South Wrexham county area.
