Hello and welcome to the Corwen section of the Spring edition of the Pulse magazine. It continues to be a busy year as we (hopefully) say goodbye to the cold weather and there is more planned in the coming weeks when hopefully spring will finally arrive!

It has been another action-packed term with many Inter-College sporting events. The poor weather has been unable to dull the enthusiasm shown by Corwen students and we have seen some really exciting tournaments. Notable performances included wins for the Year 7 & 8 boys handball teams and a victory for the Year 10 girls basketball team.

Presentation Evening was a fantastic night in which we were able to celebrate all of the great things students have achieved over the year.

The quality of the performances was fantastic and it was nice to see so many talented Corwen students involved, these included Adriano C2 starting the evening by leading the Haka and Duc C8 concluding the evening with some impressive Vietnamese Dragon dancing.

Corwen students were well represented in the awards given out throughout the evening, with some of the most notable including;

Kiran C1 8 for gaining the most myPoints in the entire school with over 1750 points. Wow!

Kiran C1 8 featured again alongside Adrianno C2 8 and Hang C11 11. These students were awarded a Governor’s Award for outstanding achievement- a particularly special accolade and presented to them by Mike Jameson the Chair of Governors.

As well as subject awards Corwen students were also recognised for their impact across the school, Shuab C9 10 won an award for his charity work through the Envision program, Mohammed Hadi C1 11, bagged 2 awards, one for Sports Personality and the other for Enrichment.

The evening was hosted by the student leadership team, and some of our best Year 11s were responsible for the smooth running of the show. Despite it being a daunting task presenting to an entire Town Hall of people, our students were confident and did a great job. Well done to Head Boy Sameer, Head Girl Margita, Deputy Head Girl Hang.

To see so many Corwen students being recognised for their achievements and showcasing their talents filled me with pride and it was a magical evening for all involved.
