Dear Parents & Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
February is here already, with five weeks already ticked off this term! Lots to feedback, most of which is on twitter and a busy final week awaits before half term.

Mae mis Chwefror yma yn barod, gyda phum wythnos eisoes wedi fflio y tymor hwn! Mae llawer i’w rannu, gyda’r rhan fwyaf ar twitter ac mae wythnos olaf brysur i ddod cyn hanner tymor.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth
