June 15th / Mehefin 15fed

Dear Parents and Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
There are lots of activities to fit in between between now and the school year. As you’ll have seen from the list in last week’s newsletter, it’s very busy – so hopefully we can fit everything in before the days run out! World Cup fever is here and everybody has their groups to support over the next month or so.

Mae llawer o weithgareddau i’w cwblhau cyn diwedd tymor. Fel a restrwyd yn y cylchlythyr diwethaf, mae’n gyfnod prysur, felly gobeithio y gallwn gwblhau popeth! Mae pawb yn gyffrous bod Cwpan y Byd wedi cychwyn ac mae gan bawb eu timau a’u grwpiau I gefnogi dros y mis nesaf.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth
