Dear Parents / Carers,

New Pupils – We have been delighted to welcome many new pupils this term. Lilly, Brandon, Barkley and Stacey have all settled in really well and next week we look forward to welcoming Seren and Llinos. Places are filling up fast as we near the move to Glasdir!

Breakfast Club – Thank you for your co-operation with the new arrangements for dropping off at Breakfast Club. They have worked very well and will now continue until we move to Glasdir.

Eisteddfod Pieces – Poems for respective age groups have been shared with the pupils today. I hope they make every effort to learn them and that many volunteer to compete in the Urdd Eisteddfod, with the first round taking place on Saturday, February 24th at Brynhyfryd.

Glan Llyn – The visit this week was a big success. The pupils had a great ‘have a go’ attitude, their behaviour was exemplary and everybody had lots of fun. I’m sure the tweets reflected this fact. Thank you to Miss Davies and Leanne for taking such good care of them.

Achievers – Students of the Week were Joseph, Isaac, Emi-lee, Matthew, Benjamin, Georgia, Josh and all of Class 3. Welsh awards went to Class 3, William, Thomas, Sophie and Oliver. Emilee received a gym certificate, Georgia one for swimming and Alex received a triathlon award.

Football Festival – A team of footballers will compete in the festival next Thursday morning at Brynhyfryd.

Glasdir Visits – Years 5 and 1 will visit Glasdir next week on Monday and Tuesday respectively. However, for safety reasons and with many workmen on the busy site at the moment, the Nursery and Reception Class visits have been postponed until after half term.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth
