Non-Uniform Day for Evan – 2nd March 2018

Category : Events

“Evan was a pupil at Ysgol Clywedog, who passed away peacefully in his sleep in 2012.  He was just 12 years old.  There were no warning signs, he was just taken away from us much too early.  Hope House Hospice have been a great support and comfort to us, helping us to manage and cope with our bereavement.  By way of a thank you to Hope House and to help them continue with the great work they do, I try to do as much fundraising for them as I can.  Each year I organise a ‘big’ fundraiser and so far have raised over £11,000.”   – Jane, Evan’s mum

This year a number of Jane’s closest friends along with Evan’s sister Katie, and some of her friends’, are all helping her to organise an event in memory of Evan,who would have been 18 on 19th August, 2018.  It will be a celebration of Evan’s birthday which will take place on Friday 17th August 2018.  A number of fundraising events have been planned before August including the Non Uniform Day at Ysgol Clywedog.   All money raised will be donated to Hope House.

Drama students ‘Set The Bar’ high

Category : Events

By Heidi Morgan-Rowlands (Year 10 Drama Student)

Myself, Caitlin Jones, Harry Bostwick and Joshua Jones recently performed a one-act-play about two homeless ladies looking for something to eat and somewhere warm to stay.
Caitlin and I first performed this play at All Saints Church, during a service, last month, so that people would think about the plight of the homeless during the cold winter months.
On the 3rd of this month, we performed the play again on a Saturday afternoon in the town centre at Set The Bar.
This was at an all-day event for poets, musicians and singers, and we were the youngest performers there. We may have been the youngest performers but we were the best supported, as parents and Clywedog students past and present turned out to support us.
The Set The Bar version was noticeably
longer than the All Saints Church version because we introduced two new mime characters brilliantly portrayed by Josh and Harry.
Our play was really well received and was even reported on by The Wrexham Leader’s Schools In Focus section.
We had thought that the final time we would perform this play would be at the school Drama Showcase on 22nd March. However, Mr. Witherden has now told us that we have been invited to perform our play again by both Brymbo Heritage Centre and by Theatr Clwyd.
