A big thank you to our Eco Club who did a litter pick in and around school this week, assisted by Cllr. Irene Mann. They collected 3 bags of litter, and are so enthused that they want to do a Beach Litter Pick next!

School Dinners – The price of a school dinner is increasing to £2.30 from September. Please remember we will be going cashless for school dinner payments from September, so please sign up for sQuid, or ask at the office for a payment card.

Attendance – Congratulations to Y1/2H with 96.2% and to Y3/4N with 98% attendance this week.

Congratulations to the children who achieved 100% attendance this year, they have been treated with a trip to Brynmill Coffee House, and had cake and  milkshakes, smoothies or hot chocolate. They have all promised to get 100% next year, so we can have more cake!

Open afternoon – we have our open afternoon on Monday, where parents are invited to come and have a look at their child’s work. Entry is from 2.00pm to 3.10pm, and if you are attending you can take your child home after 2.30pm (( please remember to sign them out at the school office).

Last Day of Term – On Tuesday it is Toy Day, and non school uniform day. Children are invited to dress up or dress down, and bring in £1.00 which will go towards much needed school resources.

Advance Notice – Y5 & Y6 will be going to Theatr Na Nog’s performance of The White Feather on the 19th September. The cost will be approximately £10.00, but we have applied for a grant, and if successful it will be less, we will let you know as soon as we have the price confirmed.

Leaver’s Mugs – Please can the Y6 children return the misprinted Leaver’s Mugs. Replacements are on their way, and we will arrange to get them to you in September.

Goodbye – A few goodbyes

– to Miss Pardoe and Miss John who will be leaving us for pastures new, good luck in your new jobs.

– to our wonderful Year 6’s, we will miss you, good luck in secondary school.

– to the children leaving to go back to their home country, we hope you have enjoyed your time in Wales.

– to the children moving to new schools, thank you for being a part of our school, we hope you settle in well.

Mrs Nicholas causes a storm!

Good luck to Mrs Nicholas in her cricket endeavours. For those that don’t know, Mrs Nicholas  was the first Welsh player to appear in the Kia Super League , and she was a key contributor to Western Storm’s 2017 success.

On the back of that, the children in Year 3/4 had a taster session with Cricket Wales this afternoon, which they really enjoyed!

Good luck Mrs Nicholas in this years tournament – would you like a leaf on the achievement tree??!
