May 26th / mai 26ain

Dear Parents / Carers,

Half term is here and I hear rain is forecast! Have a great week all and special good luck wishes to our Urdd competitors next week in Bridgend. Let's hope it's dry there as Eisteddfod fields can get very boggy.  After a week away, hopefully the fidget spinner fad will be starting to burn out!

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Mae hanner tymor yma ac mae'r glaw ar ei ffordd. Mwynhewch yr wythnos a phob lwc i'r plant fydd yn cystadlu yn yr Eisteddfod ym Mhenybont.  Gobeithio y bydd yn sych, gan bod cae Eisteddfod yn gallu bod yn fwdlyd iawn.  Ar ol wythnos i ffwrdd, gobeithio bydd y 'fidget spinners' are eu ffordd allan!

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,


Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth


The events in Manchester have of course been very sobering.  Our non uniform day and minutes silence have given the children a chance to reflect and some pupils have asked questions in school which we have endeavoured to deal with sensitively.  Some of your children may also be asking questions at home and this is completely natural.  This video by Newsround is a good basis for any discussions you may have. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/13865002

Reading Club – Mrs Liddy's Reading Club resumes after half term.

Dodgeball – The next half-term starts with our inaugural dodgeball tournament!

Rotary Spring Festival – There is a cupcake competition for Children in this event.  See the poster on our twitter account for further details

​Family Service - Class 1 gave us a fantastic Family Service on a pirate theme.  Thank you to them all.  I'd also like to thank Mrs Bourne and her team of staff for their efforts.  The hall was full and it's great to see so much parental support.

​Ty Gobaith - Daniel and Nathaniel who won their races in the Pancake Race, passed on the total collected to Ty Gobaith in a ceremony at St. Peter's Church last week.  Eluned spoke to the children in Monday's Assembly about their work and Year 6 have been selling wristbands this week, in aid of this very worthwhile charity.

​Glasdir Presentation - The children were given a presentation last week by Wynne Constriuction about the health and safety issues at the build that have to be considered before the site opens for business after February half term next year.

​Achievers- Students of the week are all of class 1, Ben, Kieran, Alexandros, Tyler, Eszter and Nurten. Sam was awarded a rugby trophy, Alys, Daniel and Gabriella swimming certificates, James scout badges and Flo a triathlon medal.

Glasdir Progress – The new Rhos Street School is taking shape.  Keep an eye on our twitter account for ongoing photographs.  Thank you to those who are sending them to us.

Ruthin Festival – On Monday June 26th, the Ruthin Festival Children's Concert will take place with us singing some rock choir songs.  Hopefully we will have a big representation of pupils.

May 19th / Mai 19fed

Dear Parents / Carers,​

Race for Life – Thank you to the School Council for organising this week's Race for Life and to Miss Davies for co-ordinating it all.  We are raising a significant amount of money and the total is still going up.  We are grateful for the support. We are also grateful for the PTA's efforts, providing refreshments and to Anna for her fundraising also.

Achievers – Students of the Week were Kemal, Dean, Leo, Freya and Oliver.  Welsh awards went to Matthew, Faye and Hannah.  Connie was awarded a certificate for climbing Snowdon.  Kian and Kieron received martial arts belts each.

Wynne Construction – This afternoon, the pupils were given a presentation from the construction company responsible for delivering the new school. 

Ty Gobaith – Nathaniel and Daniel joined me in St. Peter's Church today, as the parish passed on the total collected in this year's Pancake Races. Ty Gobaith will also attend school to deliver an assembly on their work next week.

Social Media Pictures – As a school, we seek parental permission to use images of our pupils.  May I please ask however, if you are taking photographs of school activities and posting to social media, that you ensure you have the permission from parents of any identifiable pupils in the image.  Many thanks.

£5 Notes – Please do not send in any of the old £5 notes as payment from now on, as they are no longer legal tender.  Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,


Bryn D. Jones

Headteacher / Pennaeth                                

May 12th / Mai 12fed

Dear Parents / Carers,

Friday again and the rain arrives just in time for the weekend. Let's hope the sun returns!

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Dydd Gwener ac mae'n glawio. Gobeithio ddaw yr haul yn ol!

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,


Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth

​Brass Presentation - We were treated to a lively brass and percussion presentation by Mr Powell and Mr Neale today.  It was enthusiastically received and we thank them for their time.  Soon it will be time to register interest for next year's music lessons, so the session gave food for thought I'm sure.

eSafety Group – Our eSafety group met this week, to discuss how to promote our forthcoming parental internet safety session.  Watch this space!

Glasdir Presentation – Next Friday, Wynne Constructions will speak to the pupils about health and safety aspects of the new school site.

PTA Quiz – Thank you to those who supported our PTA Quiz. It was a great evening.  The staff team came away with honour intact (once the marks had been added up properly!) Huge thanks to Dan for being a great question master. 

​Race for Life - The School Council spoke to everybody this week about next week's Race for Life event.  Please refer to the letters sent home yesterday. Hopefully lots of money will be raised towards some good causes through this event.

​Monday's Achievers - Students recognised on Monday were Abby for sailing, our mathematicians, Abbie for her walking efforts, as well as the RSS reps on Ruthin's rugby team, who won many games at a festival in Southport and also were recognised for sportsmanship. The impressive trophy was for teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.  

​Today's Achievers - Students of the Week were James, Beau, Mikolaj, Leo, Molly, Alys, Alex and Sam.  Welsh awards went to Nick, Indi and Lily.  Trystan and Georgia received swimming certificates, Jessica and Molly were recognised for Gymnastics, Leo for jujitsu and Mia for Rugby.  Well done to them all.

School Defibrilator – As a school, over the rest of this academic year, we will be looking to raise money to buy a defibrillator for the use of the local community. We wish to do this in the memory of Michael Hartshorne, father of Kaden, who so tragically passed away last year.  The money we hope will be a team effort with the school, PTA, pupils and the local community contributing. A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart to someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and the use of such devices have saved many lives sice becoming available for the public to use.​

​May 5th / Mai 5ed

Dear Parents / Carers,

Play in a Day - Jeff visited again this week and worked with Year 5 in selecting, learning, rehearsing and finally performing an adaptation of Macbeth; all in a single day!.  It was a real achievement and the Year 5 pupils responded brilliantly, giving an entertaining performance to pupils and parents.

Maths Challenge – Our two teams had a lovely day in the annual Maths challenge last week. No winners this time round but a great day and opportunity for all concerned

PTA Quiz – Don't forget the quiz tonight at the Feathers.  7pm.

National Tests – With just Years 4 and 5 left to take their reading paper, the tests are nearly over. I am proud of the way the pupils showed great concentration and effort in a mature way, with little fuss and hopefully as little stress as possible.  I'm sure they'll all be relieved to get them out of the way!

Wrexham FC – The after school sessions resume on Monday the 8th May.​​

Tempest Photography – The orders have now been sent off, but are still available to purchase online if you wish.

Swimming Gala – Good luck to our swimmers on Tuesday in the County Gala.

Ruthin Town Parishes – Please see the Messy Church flyer attached to the newsletter.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,


Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,


Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher, Pennaeth

​Urdd Eisteddfod - We had a successful day at the Urdd Eisteddfod.  We had four items winning through to the national event in Bridgend over Whit week.  Congratulations to all the Rhos Street pupils who competed – they brought us a great amount of pride and all performed to a very high standard.  Thanks also to the supportive parents for their enthusiasm and their patience on what was once again, a very long day indeed! 

Our dialogue group, which involved performing a short sketch were placed first.  Three instrumentalists were also victorious, Jemima won the woodwind solo, with Emma 2nd.  James took 1st prize in the string solo, while brother Xander won the brass competition.  Finally our group recitation were staged for the afternoon, performed fantastically and were placed 3rd.  Next stop – Bridgend, for our winners!

​Class 2 Family Service - Thank you to the Year 1 and 2 pupils of Class 2, who made Mrs Liddy and her team very proud with their Family Service this morning.  Food and Fitness was the topic and they shared a lot of important information to a packed hall.  Thanks also to Mrs Liddy and her team for their hard work.

Achievers - Students of the Week were Emi-Lee, Alana, Casey, Ella, Edan and Faye.  Connie and Emilie had gymnastics certificates and Tyler and Jenson ones for swimming.  Alex received a red karate belt.

Tempest Photography – Your payments for the photos taken this week can be received after the Easter break, so for once, there's no rush!

PTA Disco - A big thank you to everyone who supported the Easter Disco.  Over £600 profit was made which is a great return. Thank you to Jayne and her team and also anybody who helped on the night, donated cakes or supported in any way.

PTA Target – We are relying on the money raised by the PTA to purchase IT equipment for the school.  We are very grateful to have recently been able to order 6 laptops for various classes and are now targeting the purchase of  Chromebooks to be used by the pupils.  This will be a two phase project requiring a total of £10,000.  It's a big amount but the pupils will benefit greatly, bearing in mind the increased focus on IT in schools.  Thank you for your support!
