​Quest Seeker Awards

We were delighted to have around half the school presented with medals for their involvement in the local library’s ‘Quest Seekers’ reading challenge this summer.  It was very encouraging to see the pupils retained an interest in reading over the summer holidays and I very much hope that this enthusiasm continues.

Summer Reading Challenge

Llinos Davies of the Library service attended, to speak to the children about this Summer’s Reading Challenge.  The children seemed very eager to take part and I certainly am hoping that they will do  so too!  Each year, a large amount of Rhos Street pupils are awarded medals in the Autumn for their efforts and I very much hope that this is the case once again this time around.
