Dear Parents/Carers,


Rights of the child : October - Article 25

Right to meet with friends and join groups


Our Harvest Festival Service in Tabernacle was delightful. We’d like to thank our Tabernacle friends for such a warm welcome and all our families/carers who were able to attend. We hope you enjoyed the service. 

Many thanks to parents/carers who donated items to the North Gower Food Hub for Harvest. I'm sure they will be very grateful.

Tom Francis from the Roma Fish Bar, came to visit our school and judged all the entries. He was overwhelmed by the standard and enthusiasm, and said it was a very difficult decision to choose a winner!   Morgan's Awesome Salad is shown below and will be on the menu as a special in Cafe Carid - how AWESOME is that!

Shoe Box Appeal

Polite reminder that the decorated and filled shoeboxes will be collected from the school on 8th November.  Perhaps this could be a project for children over the half term holidays.

I will be decorating mine and filling with useful items for a small child. Remember items can be inexpensive. We are always grateful for your support towards this incredible charity. 

Inconsiderate/dangerous parking around the school 

A few parents have brought it to my attention that some parents/carers are parking illegally and /or obstructing the pavements. Please park responsibly and take notice of the letter below from South Wales Police.  The children`s safety is paramount!
