Dear Parents and Carers,

Snow – The snow is flirting with us once again! A wintry period lies ahead it seems and while we always strive to keep the doors of our school open, if there is a threat of closure, you are best visiting twitter and the website to find out.

Governor Visit – A delegation of Governors visited the school this morning.  Mr Hubble, Mrs Feeley, Mrs Mayers, Mrs Debicka and Mr Ryder all took a full and active role in service, before being conducted on a tour of the classes. It was great to welcome them.

Welsh Water – The Juniors will be presented with an assembly next Friday from Arfona Evans from the Brenig Reservoir Centre and following this, Years 3 and 4 will take part in workshops.

Art Club – The first session of Elfin Bow's art club, was much enjoyed by all.

Achievers – Students of the Week were Trystan, Cormack, James, William, Xander, Edan and Lucy.  James received a certificate for achieving a Grade 2 Distinction on the violin and Ieuan was awarded a trophy for Inspirational Athlete 2016 by Ruthin Trisports. 

Giggles – Giggles' CSSIW Quality of Care Report has been updated this week. Parents, carers and friends are all invited to read it on request. It is available in Giggles Pre-School. It is an annual review of their provision, for the inspecting body.

CSI Transition Project – On January 20th, Year 5 have been invited to a special CSI project in Brynhyfryd. They will need a packed lunch.

Glan Llyn – Could we have all consent and health forms returned as a matter of urgency please?

Dear Parents & Carers, Annwyl Rieni a Gwrarchodwyr,​​

Happy New Year to you all.  The new term is quickly up and running and I trust everybody had a lovely break and enjoyed the festivities.  Eyes now turn to the new challenges of 2017 and everybody here is focused on making it a successful year for the Rhos Street community.

Achievers – Starting the year in style are the following Students of the Week. Joseph, Connie, Emilie, Katie, Lottie, Kai and our new pupil Eszter who has joined us from Hungary.  A big, big welcome to her and the family to the school community. Leo received his Ju Jitsu green belt and Alex his Tae Kwon-Do yellow belt.  Well done to them all.

Contact Information – If you have had a new mobile phone for Christmas or indeed if there have been any changes to your contact information, please inform the office, so that we can update our records.

Personal Effects – At the start of the New Year, could pupils be reminded on how important it is to make sure they have a warm coat to wear at playtimes and remember their PE kit on the right day.

PTA Meeting – There will be a PTA meeting on Tuesday 10th at 3.30pm here at the school.  All welcome.

Music Tuition – Please ensure that you are up to date with music tuition payments.  There are some payments from last term due and it is also time to settle this term's fees.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Dear Parents / Carers,

It's the end of another term, another year and I don't think anybody would argue that 2016 hasn't been a year full of momentous events.  We as a school, reflect positively however, on a year in which we have achieved much and are very proud of our pupils on many levels.  We all want the very best for Rhos Street and I'm sure everybody will continue to pull together in 2017 and beyond, with the aim of achieving exactly that.  Have a fantastic Christmas and New Year.  Enjoy the festivities, the food and of course the liquid refreshment.  While I look forward to seeing you all in January, I'm sure you'll forgive me in hoping the next fortnight doesn't go too quickly! Many thanks for your support, feedback and encouragement.  It is ever so much appreciated. Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i chi gyd!

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

​Juniors' Concert - This week it was the Juniors' turn to entertain the masses and they did so in style.  Their concert was well received and I was very proud of them and grateful for the efforts of the staff in preparing them.  Thanks also to Mrs Parr for accompanying, Ruthin School for hosting and the PTA for providing refreshments.  Thanks also to for all the donations given by parents and relatives.

​Pantomime - The school travelled en masse to the great town of Mold and visited Theatre Clwyd to see the pantomime.  The performance of Aladdin was enjoyed by all and we thank the PTA again for their help in funding this trip.  Typically, the delayed return was unfortunately compounded by the rain. I hope you all dried off quickly!

​Cycling Proficiency - Year 6 were awarded their cycling proficiency certificates following their recent course.  I hope they remember the valuable lessons they learned when they ride their bikes from now on.

​Achievers - Oliver, a keen cricketer has been honoured by being selected for the North East Wales squad. Congratulations to him.  Holly also received certificates and a badge for her achievements in swimming. Da iawn ti!

​PTA Polar Express Day - The PTA's fantastic commitment to the school once again gave the pupils a lovely experience on Wednesday, as Infants and Juniors enjoyed a film in the hall, with popcorn and hot chocolate served in the interval.  Thank you for your time once again, ladies.

​Xmas Singalong - We all assembled in the hall today for our annual Christmas singalong. The pupils sang with enthusiasm, the staff played percussion terribly and the mistakes I made on guitar were cleverly hidden by all the noise.  It was great fun!

​PE Young Ambassadors - Congratulation to James, Hannah, Faye and Sam who were selected as the school's PE Bronze Ambassadors following recent interviews.

Glasdir – I hope you have had the chance to digest the newsletter, outlining the delay to the new build and the school's subsequent response.  Any questions or concerns, please get in touch.

Goodbye to our students – Thanks to Miss. Sivill and Mr. Ellis-Williams for their contributions as students over the last few weeks.  We wish them well with their training and subsequent careers.

INSET Day – Tues. Jan 3rd  is a training day, so we will welcome everybody back on the Wednesday.

Snow – Let's hope any snow is restricted to the holidays, but remember if you are in any doubt regarding school closures, then the website and twitter account is the place to go in the New Year.

Rugby – Keep an eye out in Tesco for our pupils who will be bag packing for the Rugby Club on Sat.

Glan Llyn (Year 3) – Could the remaining balance of £50 for the Year 3 Glan Llyn trip please be settled at the beginning of the new term.

PTA – You will see the PTA has sent a note thanking you all for your contributions .  I would like to thank Jayne and her team for their hard work and support. They've been fantastic.

It's mad but good here at this time of year.  There's lots going on, but the excitement is building and the last week should prove to be very special. Friday definitely will be!

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Mae'n wallgof yma yr adeg hon o'r flwyddyn. Mae llawer yn digwydd, ond mae'r cyffro yn adeiladu a bydd yr wythnos olaf yn profi i fod yn arbennig iawn. 

Your sincerely,

​Infants' Concert - The Infants' performances went down a treat and we are all very proud of the pupils.  Thank you to Mrs Liddy and her team, to Anna and her Giggles staff and to our volunteers for the part they all played in making it such a successful concert.

School Choir Arrangements – We're getting lovely feedback on the performances of our Rock Choir and look forward to seeing them sing in the PTA Fair tomorrow and at St. Peter's Church on Sunday in the service which starts at 6pm.  Could we all meet again outside church at 5.45pm please.

Junior Concerts Next Week – The children have been told the nature of the Xmassy costume they've been asked to wear in each class.  We are not selling tickets in advance of Tuesday's concerts at 1.30pm and 6pm.  However, we do request donations towards school funds on the night.  For the evening concert we ask pupils to arrive for 5.30pm.

​Share Appeal - Many thanks to those of you who have donated to our SHARE appeal, which supports refugees.  The large pile of boxes and bags have been taken off to the collection point in Mold and we thank Emma Taylor for organising this.

​Last week's Achievers - Students of the Week were Joseph, Connie, Gabby, Alexandros, Deiniol, Georgia, Wil and Hannah.  Swimming and Gymnastics certificates were shared with James and Georgia respectively.

Rock Choir - Our Rock Choir gave their first performances this week.  First of all they sang in St. Peter's on Saturday and also sang at the Cross Keys on Sunday.  On Monday they sang for the residents at Awelon and on all three occasions charmed the audience.  Thanks to all participants.

PTA Fair – The PTA Fair is of course tomorrow night from 5.30-7.30pm. Any cake donations would be gratefully appreciated.

Polar Express Day – On Wednesday, the PTA will run a special Polar Express film event with Infants in the morning and Juniors in the afternoon. Please see the special tickets sent home!

Pantomime – On Thursday, the school attends the pantomime in Mold.  The estimated time of their return to school will be around 4.50pm.  Could we ask that for refreshments that you restrict the children to bringing a small drink and a small bag of sweets.  Your co-operation here would be much appreciated.

Art Club – Please see letters sent home regarding the new Art Club being held in the New Year.  It looks very exciting!

Dear Parents / Carers,

School Choir Events – Saturday's Xmas Lights Performance: The lights are being switched on at 5.30pm and this will be followed by a parade of trucks.  We then all adjourn to St. Peter's Church and ask that all pupils meet with school staff outside the church at 5.45pm. We have also been asked to sing on Sunday at 4.30pm in the Cross Keys Llanfwrog as part of the Christmas Market being held there. Please refer to the letter sent and emailed home.

Cycle Experience – I'm pleased many pupils have taken advantage of the opportunity to take the Cycling Proficiency course this week.  It is certainly a very worthwhile activity.

Achievers – Last week's achievers were Kaden, Isaac, Dean, Jack and all of Year 5.  Faye, Jocelyn, Fletcher and Kian had certificates and belts for karate.

Mock Trial – The mock trial last week was a resounding success.  The pupils benefitted greatly from the experience and their behaviour was exemplary. Thanks to Pat Astbury for organising, to North Wales Police for their involvement and to the Rotary for sponsoring bus costs.

​Family Service – Many thanks to Year 5 for their Family Service.  Their presentations on Australia were very well received.  Thanks to Mrs. Davies for her work preparing the children.​

Christmas Dinner – Christmas Dinner was served today. What a fantastic way to greet December!

PTA – Remember it is the PTA Own Clothes day tomorrow.  The PTA ask that donations be brought in for the chocolate tombola instead of a fee.  Next Friday, December 9th, the PTA Fair will be held. Please refer to the posters sent home and posted to the school twitter page and PTA Facebook page for further details. Many thanks.
