Dear Parents & Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
The days are getting longer, the daffodils are appearing and we’re seeing a bit more of that yellow thing that can appear in the sky, so I think we can say that Spring has reluctantly arrived! It’s a busy time in school with national events like the Urdd, St. David’s Day, World Book Day and Sport Relief all falling within a few days of one another. They are always great fun, even though they need co-ordination and support from staff, pupils and parents alike. The diary is no less busy in the lead up to Easter and I have provided you with provisional dates overleaf.

Mae’r dyddiau’n mynd yn hirach, mae’r cennin Pedr yn ymddangos, felly dwi’n meddwl y gallwn ni ddweud bod y Gwanwyn wedi cyrraedd! Mae’n amser prysur yn yr ysgol gyda digwyddiadau cenedlaethol fel yr Urdd, Dydd Gwyl Dewi, Diwrnod y Llyfr a Sport Relief i gyd yn disgyn o fewn ychydig ddyddiau i’w gilydd. Maent bob amser yn llawer o hwyl, er bod angen cydlynu a chefnogaeth gan staff, disgyblion a rhieni fel ei gilydd.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth
