School background

CARROG SCHOOL

A busy start to the new term! All the junior children enjoyed a concert in the Llangollen International Pavilion by “Mabon”, a group who already have links with Carrog - two of their musicians supported the Manx group who have stayed with us twice in recent months.

As part of their history project the children all walked to the top of Owain Glyndŵr’s Mount and were encouraged to use their imagination to go back over 600 years. This was helped by the appearance of a local re-enactment society member (and parent!) who was waiting to meet them dressed in traditional attire.

World Book Day was celebrated by dressing up as animals and reciting stories and poems about animals and mythical beasts.

The pupils have also collected money for the Macmillan Nurses by having wacky hairstyles.

Pupils and staff are all glad that Auntie Yvonne’s husband, Emyr, is recovering well from his recent accident - he has decided that in future he will keep well away from ladders and fires and so will not be pursuing a career as a fireman.

The PTFA are organising a series of interesting evenings (Free for All!) in school. Further information from Carrog School, dates in “Y Bont” Diary.
