Thank you to everyone who donated to our Rags2Riches appeal for clean old clothes, we raised over £200 for Eco resources for the school. Diolch!

On Monday  the Y5/6 children will be going to the LC for a sports session run by the UWTSD students. Children are asked to wear sports clothes, bring a water bottle and a packed lunch. We are asking for £2.50 voluntary contributions towards the cost of the transport to and from the event ( at the time of writing we do not have enough money to cover transport, and unfortunately if we are unable to cover costs this may jeopardise future trips, if you are able to contribute this would be greatly appreciated).

On Tuesday we are celebrating Harvest in School, we are asking for donations of tinned or dry food which will be passed onto a local organisation to distribute to those in need.

On Wednesday parents are invited in to watch the following classes in the Harvest Festival Y1/2B, Y3/4T, Y3/4N, LFPR. Unfortunately Mrs Evans is still unwell so we have decide to not include her class in the Harvest Festival, they will perform later in the school year.

On Wednesday the Friends of Brynmill Primary are putting on a school disco, Foundation Phase Disco ( Nursery to Year 2) is from 5pm to 6pm and children must be accompanied by a parent, KS2 children are from 6pm to 7pm. Entry is £1.00 and there will be refreshments etc on sale.

On Friday the school nurses will be to give out the Flu Vaccine to those who have consent. There are a lot of forms outstanding, reminders have been sent home. Please complete the form with either a Yes or No and return as soon as possible.

Becky Lowe (Stephanie’s mum, Y5/6E) has produced a children’s storybook, The King of Broken Things. A tale of being lost, being found, and the search for real meaning in life, it’s suitable for all ages, 0 to 100. Price is £3 and, if bought through school, £1 of every copy sold will go towards the school. They make great stockingfillers! Copies are available from Becky or from the office.

Calpol –  We have a small amount of Calpol available in school for children who become ill during the school day (after we have had confirmation from a parent). If your child comes in to school, slightly under the weather, and you would like them to have Calpol at lunchtime, please provide some from home, and complete the medicine form available in the foyer.
