Dear Parents and Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,

Anti-Bullying Week – There have been some lovely, worthwhile activities taking place this week as the school supported Anti-Bullying Week. Odd socks were de rigeur on Monday, while various discussions have been taking place in classes throughout the week. This morning, our online assembly drew all the themes together, making the whole initiative a very positive one with a strong message.

Children in Need – A huge thank you to the school community for its fantastic support of our Children in Need activities once again this year. A total of £570 was raised.

Snack – From Monday, we will revert to buying, preparing and sharing snack ourselves for the pupils across the school. Food will of course be prepared safely. We will return to the old system of requesting a £1 contribution per week.

Training Day – The additional training day carried over from the beginning of the Autumn Term has now been allocated. It will now take place on January 5th. The updated date list is attached to the email.

Punctuality – I would be grateful if everybody could ensure that all pupils are inside the building by 9am. There has been an increase in late arrivals over the last couple of weeks and your cooperation would be appreciated.

Christmas – Plans for Xmas are afoot. Each class will perform and record a short item which will be shared. The PTA also have some lovely ideas for Christmas activities. Despite the circumstances of 2020, we want to try and have a special Rhos Street Christmas!

PTA Chocolate – Huge thanks for your chocolate donations. Your support is appreciated so much!

Students of the Week – Students of the Week were Emily, Evan, Ayla, Isla, Jacob, Hannah, Ruben, Amelia, Mia-Rose, Merry, Cadie, Finley, Cayden and Leo. Alys also received a Welsh Award. Well done to them all.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth
