Eirias music and drama visit to London for Matilda experience Featured

By Head Girl of 6th form, Lauren Tansley

With it being my last year in Ysgol Eirias, I was certain that I would go on the London trip one last time and all I can say is that I had an amazing time.

Matilda had some of the best choreography I have ever seen.

It was quirky, fast and daring and I believe that it added to the atmosphere of being in the theatre.

The stage design and the constant use of blocks and squares was extremely effective and allowed us as an audience to be pulled into the performance. The use of props such as the swings and the gates to exaggerate body movements, and create different levels, fascinated me as it must have the other members of the audience.

The ‘Magic’ of the musical really came to life throughout the night and as an audience, I think we all forgot that we were watching something that was on a stage, as we were totally engrossed within the action and fantasy of the story.

We attended a workshop led by a brilliant Musical Director which was challenging, but so much fun.

The range of vocal ability throughout the room no longer mattered, as we became a group that pretty much aced the given song ’Revolting Children’. With nothing but positive feedback from Mike, Tom and the teachers, it’s pretty easy to say we felt quite proud of ourselves.

The Q&A with cast member Tom Muggeridge allowed us to ask questions we may not ask others.  It was extremely beneficial to hear his responses, especially for me as I am planning to study drama next year in University.

All in all I thoroughly enjoyed myself over this weekend, it really was a magical experience.

  • Eisteddfod Ysgol Eirias 2018

    Roedd Mawrth y 7fed yn ddiwrnod cyffrous iawn yn Ysgol Eirias- diwrnod Eisteddfod 2018!

    March the 7th was an exciting day here at Ysgol Eirias- it was the day of our annual Eisteddfod.

    Roedd llawer o gyffro yn y neuadd wrth i flwyddyn 8 a blwyddyn 7 gystadlu i fod y Llys buddugol. Roedden ni’n lwcus iawn i gael grŵp roc Blwyddyn 10 “Laugh Till We Cry” i berfformio. Cawson ni gystadlaethau llwyfan fel meimio i gân roc Gymraeg, sgetsys Caffi Carlo a Dougie Diog a chystadlaethau sgwigl. Sôn am ddoniol! Roedd llu o gystadlaethau Gwaith Cartref hefyd. Yn olaf roedd y gystadleuaeth bwysig- cystadleuaeth Y Côr. Canodd pawb Calon Lân yn angerddol. Llongyfarchiadau i Lys Glyndŵr am ennill Eisteddfod blwyddyn 7 a blwyddyn 8 am 2018. Da iawn i bawb am gystadlu.

    There was a lot of excitement in the hall as year 7 and 8 battled to win this year’s Eisteddfod. We were very lucky that “Laugh Till We Cry” came to perform for us. We had several competitions on stage such as the mime to a Welsh rock song, Caffi Carlo and Dougie Diog sketches and the ever popular squiggle competition. There were also plenty of Gwaith Cartref competitions also. The final and most important competition of the Eisteddfod was the choir competition. Everyone sang Calon Lân with passion. Congratulations to Glyndŵr for winning the year 7 and year 8 Eisteddfod for 2018. Well done to all competitors.

  • Oxbridge Success!

    We were delighted to hear that two of our Year 13 students have received conditional offers from Oxford and Cambridge Universities this year. 

    Nye Michael has been offered a place at St Catherine's College, Oxford to read History and Economics and Daisy Coombs has been offered a place at Newnham College, Cambridge to read Modern and Medieval Languages. 

     Both students have worked incredibly hard to prepare for their applications, including many hours practicing for admissions tests and reading up on relevant materials. 

    They are both clearly deserving of their offers.  Daisy says that she was "very excited to receive her offer and would definitely encourage other students to apply to Oxford and Cambridge even if they are unsure". 

    If successful, Daisy should be following in the footsteps of famous Newnham alumni such as Emma Thompson, Mary Beard and Clare Balding. 

    Nye also said that he was "delighted to get the offer and that students should consider applying even if the admissions papers initially appear terrifying or if their GCSE grades are a little below the usual Oxbridge profile." 

    Nye was one of only 18 students offered a place for History and Economics at St Catherine's this year from 122 applicants ( an offer rate of just 14.8%). 

    Nye should be following in the footsteps of notable alumni such as John Paul Getty, Benazir Bhutto and Matthew Pinsent. 

    Both students have benefitted from the school's involvement in the Conwy and Denbighshire Seren programme, designed to help students in Wales to apply for competitive university courses. 

    Nye attended a Seren summer school at Jesus College, Oxford whilst Daisy was encouraged to enter a Modern Languages Essay competition with Newnham College, which was 'Highly Commended'.  Congratulations to both students on their well-deserved success.
