Dear Parents and Carers,


Last week we were super busy and had a wonderful week with St David`s Day and World Book Day. We have been told all our classes will be in the Evening Post Little Saints supplement this week  , on either Tuesday 8th or Wednesday 9th March. Thanks for your support with both events. 


This week we will be making reference to International Women`s Day, which is held on Tuesday March 8th and we will be celebrating the successes of three women ,who have strong links to Penclawdd Primary. We`d like to thank them for allowing us to share and celebrate their journey to success!
