The new term has brought about many exciting changes in Corwen College. Not only do we welcome a fresh set of Year 7 students, who have made a really positive start to the year, there are also quite a few new staff who have joined our college as new Form Tutors. I would like to extend a warm Corwen welcome to Ms Khanam, Ms Louis, Mr Dahir, Mr Doha and Ms Wilkinson. They are already working hard to get to know their form members and I know students are benefiting from their energy and enthusiasm.

Already this term there has been a lot of sport taking place with inter-college competitions in netball, football and rugby. Some hard fought tournaments have seen good results for Year 7&11 girls netball and Year 7&8 boys football and with a packed calendar of further events I am sure that more exciting games will take place.

It is tradition that Corwen raise money for Children in Need each year and this year was not different. On Friday 17th November Corwen Forms gathered to launch this year’s event with a large variety of goodies on sale. In the previous Corwen assembly we had watched some videos of young people facing a variety challenges and seen how vital the support, paid for by Children in Need, was to them. Energised Tutor groups set to work deciding on the type of stall they would set up, purchasing their stock, advertising their goods and then staffing their stall during the event. It was well supported by the whole school keen to donate money and buy some tasty treats, at one point we had a queue reaching all the way across the playground! 

C4 and C1 were the stars of the show, managing to raise over £70 each, selling pizza and cupcakes. This fantastic team effort from all the Corwen Tutor groups managed to secure £500.05 for Children in Need and this money will now be spent helping disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

 

College Captain

The process of application for those competing for the role comprised of a written letter and a presentation on their vision for Corwen in the future. Mr Wright and Mrs Williams watched all the presentations and were greatly impressed with the confidence show by students and also the depth of great ideas that many of them had on ways in which to improve the college further.

I am delighted to introduce to you Corwen’s College Captain for this year, Amrit.  We were impressed with the contribution he had already made to the college and also his ideas for further development, we look forward to working with him in the future.

His Deputy will be Abdul. We were impressed with Abdul confidence and determination skills and definitely can see him contributing to assemblies in the future.

I was clear that all the students had spent lots of time and effort on this process and I would like to thank those that applied for their hard work.

Head of Corwen College
