Notes from the Head 13th December 2019

The Christmas magic and sparkle has arrived. The Foundation Phase pupils told the story of the Nativity delightfully; ‘Shine Star Shine’ which gave us the Christmas message in a wonderfully enjoyable way. By the end of the production we didn’t have one ‘Shining Star’, we had 25 others too! They remembered all their lines – with a few nudges from Mrs John, which only added to the performance. They sang their songs beautifully. A big well done to the wardrobe department who managed to rival the wardrobe department on Strictly Come Dancing!! The cast all looked fabulous. Thank you Mrs John and the Foundation Phase team for supporting the children in achieving this. The audience were smiling and clapping throughout, and the babies and toddlers looked very keen to join in.

‘Are we nearly there yet’ performed by Key Stage 2 was absolutely brilliant. I did think I had wandered into Theatre Clwyd by mistake. The children were word perfect and very professional. I was really impressed with all the songs that the children sang so well. I was also impressed with all the solos and duets. It was wonderful watching the audience smiling and seeing very proud faces among the parents.

The afternoon performance was brilliant but there was even more excitement among the children for the evening’s performance. The children managed to raise their performance even further. I think everyone was so impressed including the members of the Governors who attended the concert.

Many thanks to the PTA who provided everyone with refreshments to start the concert. No one minded being kept waiting for 5 to 10 minutes when they had the delight of mulled wine, chocolate and mince pies to enjoy.

What a busy week! It’s Thursday and it is the Christmas Fayre. I was short staffed as a member of staff was off in Nercwys and I had to stay in After School Club for a while. I was panicking that I needed to get to Nannerch to help. There was no need to worry, as it was Nannerch and the PTA had organised everything beautifully as always. The school looked wonderfully festive and once again we had the lovely scent of mulled wine and inviting goodies to eat. There was such a lovely atmosphere with everyone helping, socialising whilst raising money for the school. The raffle prizes were fantastic and numerous. A big thank you to everyone - Parents, Staff, Grandparents, Parents of past pupils and members of the Community.

I won’t be writing a blog next week, but we are looking forward to Peter Pan at the Storyhouse, Christmas Lunch and all the festivities.

Can I take the opportunity to wish everyone an enjoyable and restful Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.

Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.
