Parent/Carer Newsletter 22nd November 2019

KS2 cinema trip

All pupils in KS2 enjoyed a trip to the cinema in Newport this week. We are only asking parents/carers for transport costs for our Autumn term ‘treat’ trips.  Pupils in Foundation Phase (FP) will be going to Treasure Island in Pontypool Active Living Centre before the end of term. We are awaiting confirmation of dates for the FP trip.


PTA raffle

To help with prizes for the PTA raffle, next Friday (29th November) is a mufti day. Instead of bringing £1, we are asking for the children to bring a donation for the raffle. The PTA hope to make up hampers with these donations, and have assigned a colour to each class (see below). If you are donating food or drink items, please ensure these have a long best before date (at least January 2020), but you can also donate non-food items, for example Christmas decorations, small toys etc. 

Dosbarth Pebble Red Dosbarth Pwll Ddu Purple
Dosbarth Poppit Sands Orange Dosbarth Aberdovey Gold
Dosbarth Ogmore Yellow Dosbarth Abersoch  Silver
Dosbarth Barafundle  Green Dosbarth Rhosilli Pink
Dosbarth Tresaith Blue    


Weekly Attendance Award

Each week in Celebration Assembly, the class with the best attendance are rewarded with a mufty day the following Friday. Dosbarth Barafundle are the winners again this week but as next Friday 29th November is a non-uniform day for the whole school, Dosbarth Barafundle can wear mufty on Thursday 28th December.


CPR training for all parents/carers

Donna from Welsh Hearts who previously provided CPR training to all pupils last year will return to work with our reception pupils as well as providing training for parents/carers between 2pm and 3pm on Friday 6th December.

Please come along for this life-saving training.
