As we draw to the end of the second week of term, it has been my pleasure to see the school community working together and settling down to work.
The new season of college courses have started and both Year 11 and the new Year 10 students starting for the first time embarked upon their courses this week at Coleg Cambria and St.Christopher’s.
Every student at Ysgol Rhosnesni has started a new year with new teachers in many cases and new experiences have started. Many classes are working hard in the new Flexible Learning Rooms and the new Library and Learning Centre has been popular this week.
It was my pleasure to visit four of our feeder Primary Schools this week – Borras Park, Wat’s Dyke, Barkers Lane and Acton Park Primary Schools. We have received such a warm welcome and it was wonderful to take along Peer Mentors and Year 7 students as Ambassadors of Rhosnesni. My thanks go to all of the students who attended the visits to the Primary Schools for the mature and responsible manner in which they conducted themesleves. Congratulations to the students who were successful in their summer examinations from our cluster of Primary Schools.
We look forward to working together throughout the year on a number of transition programmes with our cluster of schools.
It has been a pleasure to read the aplications from our Year 11 students who have applied for a position in our Student Leadership Team. The interviews will be taking place over the next few weeks for the Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Girl and Senior Student Leaders. The applications reflect the quality of students that we are so proud of at Ysgol Rhosnesni.
Our congratulations go to Laura Turnbull who left in 2012, started her studies at LJMU (Liverpool John Moores University), this September. She has received a letter today informing her that she has been awarded the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for the duration of her time at University. She is studying Sport and Exercise Science. An outstanding achievement!
Welcome to Ysgol Rhosnesni. It has been a very busy term with lots of activities and projects taking place across the school. We have welcomed students from our cluster primary schools to English Master Classes, launched the Arts Council Lead Creative Schools programme, held Mock Interview Day for Year 11 students, welcomed many visitors to our school and students have visited Berlin in February and our trip to Iceland takes place in April was a great success.
After a very busy start to the summer half term we will be closing for the May half term holidays on Friday 26th May at 3.00pm and re-opening on Monday June 5th. A whole school newsletter from the Headteacher will be issued on 24th May.
