Dear Parents/Carers,


Rights of the child : June 2024 - Article 6 - Right to life and to be healthy


Welcome back after half term. We are excited about the next few weeks and have lots of lovely things planned. We are looking forward to enjoying our last few weeks with our wonderful Y6 pupils, who are now preparing for their transition to Year 7. 


Gowerton School Y5 and Y6 Open Evening - 25th June 6-8pm

Reminder - please see poster below.


School Summer Fayre

The Friends of Penclawdd are busy planning our Summer Fayre which will be held on 4th July 2024.  We desperately need parents / friends / grandparents to help run a stall.  If you could help out please can you contact the school office?  Many thanks


Swansea Grand Theatre Performance

The School Choir are performing next week at 'The Grand Theatre' Swansea on Friday. It would be fantastic to see staff and families at the Grand supporting the Choir who have worked so hard and who will dazzle on that stage with an 'ABBA' performance. Here is the link if you would like to purchase tickets.

James Hook 'Hook's Hike'

James Hook - Former Wales and British Lions Rugby player is raising money for Wales Air Ambulance by hiking 100 miles from Tenby - Mumbles.  To give him a boost on his hike Mrs D tracked him down on the Marsh road and offered him a cheer (and a malt loaf bar for extra energy) from all of us at Penclawdd Primary School.  He was wowed by our community and sent thanks to the children of Penclawdd Primary for thinking of him! Check out his just giving page 'Hooky's Hike' for more information or to donate to this great cause.  Keep an eye on his Instagram page to see Mrs D cheer him on!
