Dear Parents/Carers,

 

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

 

This week some of our children took part in the Athletic tournament heats at Ashleigh Road.  The weather was typically Welsh but our enthusiasm and the performance of the children and the team was awesome! Well done all. Huge well done to Sienna and Gethin in Y5 who have now qualified for the County Championship where they will compete against all the other schools. Sienna in the 800m and Gethin in the long jump.

 

Roz and Kirsty Class Photos

This will take place on 26th June. Children will need to wear their school uniform. The class photo is very popular as many children and parents treasure this as they fondly remember what their class looked like.
