Ysgol Rhiwabon was the place to be on September 21st for the Open Evening.
The level of primary school age parents who were present to experience the Rhiwabon atmosphere was very high & reflects the leading transition activities carried out by the school, and all its local primary colleagues.
However, the highlights of the evening were the numerous Grandparents who were being shown around the school by new Year 6 pupils eager to show what they had done, and where they had been, during their transition days.
The Headteacher, Mrs Ferron-Evans, gave a presentation during the evening. As a former pupil of the school herself, Mrs Ferron-Evans was keen to emphasise the values of tradition, hard work, and community links that drive the work within the school to continue to deliver improvements. These improvements have led to record GCSE results again this summer.
Speaking later, Mrs Ferron-Evans, Headteacher, 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 website and app. reflect 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 and grandparents face to face during the evening; it really was a pleasure and I would like to thank everyone for their extremely positive comments on the school.”
The Open Evening was extremely well attended by prospective Parents and reflects the increasing interest in the historic school serving the South Wrexham county area.
