Dear Parents and Carers,


What a busy week !  Christmas is always super special in our school - we are very lucky.

As mentioned last week, the tickets are £2 each, and limited to two per family, per performance. Please, please do not attempt to purchase more than your allocation. We are keeping a reserve list for requests for extra tickets. We apologise that we cannot offer more tickets but we are bound by fire and safety restrictions.

Christmas Fayre 2022

Our Christmas Fayre has been scheduled for a 3pm start on Tuesday December 13th . All are welcome, so please spread the word! Our FoP (Friends of Penclawdd)  are working very hard on putting a fantastic event together, but have asked whether families may also able to help run a stall ? Please contact Lynsey Wooliscroft or Rebecca Griffiths, if you can help out.


Thanks for the fab Tombola prizes . The FoP now need clean , in tact  teddies for a teddy stall.

We have a raffle taking place with some great prizes. Tickets will be handed out to children on December 6th . Each family will have one strip of 5 tickets  (for £5 a strip or £1 a ticket). There is no pressure to buy them all and you can return any you don`t want. Alternatively, we will be keeping spares at the school office, should you want extras.



We are delighted to tell you about our next community event when the toddlers from Tabernacle Church Playgroup will visit us , is on Tuesday 13th December at 10am - 11am for some Christmas fun.
