Congratulations to LFPR with 99% attendance and to Y3/4N with 98.5% attendance this week. Llongyfarchiadau!

Lost Property – We have sorted through the lost property, and all labelled items have been reunited to their owners. However there are still 33 school jumpers, 50 pieces of other clothing, 9 lunchboxes, 15 coats, and 2 superhero capes left. If your child has lost anything please claim it within the next two weeks. Anything left will be reused or recycled.

Sports Day – Our sports day is next Tuesday, and letters have gone home with more information. Parents are invited to join us at St Helen’s Rugby Ground from 9.30 until 12ish. If the weather is bad we have a reserve date of Wednesday 26th June.

School Dinners – Please remember, if your child has school dinners it is your responsibility to ensure there is enough credit on your sQuid account. Please ensure that  sQuid is topped up regularly, and consider setting up the auto top up feature, which means that you will never run out of funds. The council has a No Debt Policy letter. If there is no money on your account then unfortunately you will have to provide a packed lunch.

Health & Wellbeing Fortnight – We are off to a flying start with this whole school project, with healthy eating workshops, mindfulness, and extra fitness sessions. We also have football sessions and food demos coming up in due course.
