Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Rights of the child : July 2024 - Article 31 - Right to relax and play

 

☀️We have had a very busy week in which we had two Sharing the Learning events, Athletics, plus our Summer Fayre.☀️

 

The fayre was very well attended. Many thanks to everyone who supported us and of course to “The Friends of Penclawdd”  who organised the event. The children really enjoyed and were very excited.
