Dear Parents & Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
Half-term arrives, in between the departure of Storm Ciara and the arrival of Storm Dennis! Before we break up though, we have the PTA Valentine’s Disco and it seems that love is in the air, particularly among some of our Year 6 pupils! Maybe a bucket of cold water will be in order later! I hope all our pupils and staff have an enjoyable week and we look forward to welcoming everybody back on Monday, February 24th.

Mae hanner-tymor wedi cyrraedd, rhwng ymadawiad Storm Ciara a dyfodiad Storm Dennis! Cyn i ni dorri i fyny serch hynny, mae gennym ni Disgo Calan CrhA ac mae’n ymddangos bod cariad yn yr awyr, yn enwedig ymhlith rhai o’n disgyblion Blwyddyn 6! Efallai y bydd bwced o ddŵr oer mewn trefn yn nes ymlaen! Rwy’n gobeithio y bydd ein holl ddisgyblion a staff yn cael wythnos ddifyr ac edrychwn ymlaen at groesawu pawb yn ôl ddydd Llun, Chwefror 24ain.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth

Year 5 Family Service – Well done to Year 5 for their Family Service about the Rainforests this morning. They certainly sent a strong message for us all to think about. My thanks go to the pupils and Mrs Davies for their hard work and to parents for their support this morning.

Clothes Recycling – Our recycling has raised over £85 so far this year. If you have a clear out over half-term, then please use our collection point here by the reception.

Vale of Clwyd Football – Our footballers really gave a great account of themselves in a hard fought tournament this morning. They won three games against Pen Barras, Twm o’r Nant B and Esgob Morgan B, drew with Frongoch and lost to Esgob Morgan A and Twm o’r Nant A. Well done to them all!

Achievers – Students of the week were Piper, Jacob, Clare, Sofia, Meredith, Elliott, all of Yr 5, Tyler & Charlie. Welsh awards went to Finley, Chloe, Ffion & James. Da iawn!

Urdd Eisteddfod – Could all competitors do their level best to practice and learn their pieces so we can get them all drilled before the Eisteddfod on February 29th. They can access audio files to help them via their HwB accounts.

Visit to Richard Williams – Thank you to Richard Williams, Builders Merchant for the welcome extended to our Year 2 pupils this week. They had a brilliant time!

Message from Councillor Hilditch-Roberts
Dear Parent / Guardian, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the delay in delivering the additional yard for Rhos Street School, and I share your frustration regarding the recent lack of activity.
Next week, over the half term break, contractors will be on the Rhos Street School field undertaking percolation tests. These tests are necessary to ensure that the proposed drainage system for the new yard is sufficient.
Once the tests are complete we will be nearer to delivering a new yard for Rhos Street School as then we will be ready to tender the work.
Procurement by the Council is governed by detailed UK legislation, and the law requires that all council procurement and contracting is conducted transparently, fairly and in a non-discriminatory manner.
Thank you, Huw
