Standing room only!
It was standing room only at Ysgol Rhiwabon’s Open Evening on Thursday October 6th. This special event in Ysgol Rhiwabon’s 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 staff, governors and the Ysgol Rhiwabon students who are very proud of their school.
Ysgol Rhiwabon and the local Primary schools work very closely together providing 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.
The 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 values of tradition, hard work and community links and to ensure every young person achieves the very best they can be.
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 in the schools and its local community.
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 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 the historic school serving the South Wrexham county area.
