Dear Parents and Carers,

Swansea Target 95%
Llanrhidian Target 96%
We have ended the Spring term with a bang! Huge well done to our choir and drummers who performed at the Brangwen Hall on Monday. It really was a memory that will last for many years.
Thank you also for supporting our traditional Easter Eggstravaganza event yesterday, which is a perfect way to end the school term. Our Caffi staff have never worked so hard, and I am sure you agree that they did an amazing job. This is such a great example of pupils in the "real world of work" developing life long skills. We raised over £260 in donations yesterday and all funds raised will be used for pupil resources, and to enhance our learning environment.
We will be saying farewell to our marquee this month, and what a way to end its time with our choir and drummers. I am sure you will agree that their performance yesterday was absolutely amazing. A huge thank you and well done to our three amazing teachers who have pulled this together.
The Summer term is when our wonderful grounds really shine. Please support us with plants for our planting day (April 18th) so we can, once again, develop our jubilee gardens that we built last year. We have booked our wild flower seeds to replace our marquee for the next 6 months, which will provide our pupils with a huge learning resource, as well as supporting our local bee population.
Please remember that there is an additional Bank holiday on May 8th for the Coronation of King Charles III. This will follow the usual bank holiday on May 1st. (See below for other key calendar dates). Here are the other headlines this week.
Planting Day Tuesday April 18th We will be holding our annual planting day. We would be grateful if you could donate any plants, pots or compost ready for this fun event. We take so much pride in our grounds during the summer term, and with your help we can make it look amazing after the horrid last few months.
Premises Plea We are always looking to make our environment welcoming, interesting and stimulating. So if you are having a spring clean and have any spare artificial plants, real house plants, interesting ornaments (not too delicate) then please could we have them. It really makes such a difference to our working spaces. We are also still in need of good quality board games, packs of cards and puzzles for wet play times.
