Great News! – We have been chosen as one of the Coop’s local causes for this year (starting this Sunday). Please pick up a membership card next time you are in a Coop branch, nominate us, and we receive a small donation every time you spend on Coop own brand products. If you are already a member, please log on to your account to change who you would like to support this year. This could potentially raise over £1,000 for the school to improve the playground facilities. A big thank you to Cat Davies and Leanne Clulee for applying on our behalf.
Attendance – Congratulations to Y1/2B with 99.3% and Y3/4J with 96.2% attendance this week. Llongyfarchiadau!
Staffing Update – We are pleased to inform parents that Mrs L. Davies will be returning to support pupils in Foundation Phase after half term.
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond the school’s control, Mrs Howard’s absence will be continuing after half term; for continuity, the class will again be covered by Mrs Timeaus. We do not yet know when Mrs Howard will be returning but we will keep you informed. If you have any concerns, please either contact the class teacher or Mrs Lewis, Foundation Phase Leader directly.
Mrs Davey’s Y3/4D class will continue to be covered by Mr McCoy for the foreseeable future.
Fundraising – Thank you to those who have signed up to Easy Fundraising, the donations have started to come through. If you haven’t signed up, please go to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/brynmillps. Before you do your internet shopping with places such as Amazon, ebay, Argos and hundreds of other shops, click through the app, and the school will get a donation at no extra cost to you.
Eco Club – Some members of our Eco Club had a trip to the Baling Plant this week. Here is what they thought about it :- Poppy – the best bit was seeing Jess the hawk, who kept the seagulls away from the food waste bags. Lilias – I learnt that everyone needs to recycle more. Mrs Morgans – I learnt the difference between stretchy plastic, such as carrier bags, which are recyclable, and crinkly plastics such as salad bags, which are not! Miss Rees – I found out that black plastic food trays can be recycled by Swansea Council.
Y5/6 Residential – Letters have been sent home, please can we have deposits of £20.00 as soon as possible.
Proposed Y3/4 Trip to Cardiff – Please return the slip as soon as possible so we can gauge interest for a Y3/4 Overnight Trip to the Urdd, Cardiff.
Christmas Concerts – Please refer to our events page for details of the Christmas Concerts.
