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!
Monday 4th June, message from Miss Brown, Deputy Headteacher
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our staff and students back after a lovely week off. We are also excited to welcome Mr Andrew Brant our new headteacher who is looking forward to meeting all of our students and continuing the schools successful journey forward.
For Parents of Year 6 students joining us in September, you will have received your welcome letter with the arrangements for the transition days and the parent welcome evening being held on Wednesday 27th June in the school hall. The evening will be hosted by our new Headteacher Mr Andrew Brant and further transition information will be added to our Transition Page once finalised.
Our Y11 students have been working very hard and attending sessions after school revision sessions. A letter is being issued to Y11 students today outlining important information regarding the school Prom and home study arrangements. The GCSE Examinations commence on Tuesday 8th May and there are a number of pre exam briefings available to support your child. A copy of the letter is available under the Parents section of the school website.
Finally, on behalf of all staff I would like to wish all of our Y10 and Y11 students the best of luck in their exams.
