We have had a great "Read to Relax" week and the pupils loved the book sale. Thank you for supporting this! It makes so much sense to recycle books rather than buy new. Whilst we are all finding money doesn't go quite so far, it is important that we use the school community as a way to support each other. Re-using school uniform is a great way of helping other families. Please send in your used uniform, and we will distribute. Like wise if you ever need any items just email the office. If we have it we will pass it on to you. Please be assured that your child can wear non branded polo-shirts and school jumpers which can be purchased from many supermarkets, if you prefer. Here are the headlines this week:-
Y6 Parent Workshop - (Transition to year 7) Wednesday May 17th 3:30pm in school. This workshop will be run by Amy Glass, our "In Reach" worker. The workshop will help support parents and pupils through the transition process to comprehensive school.
NEW DATE! Parent Workshop (all ages) - Resilience; Wednesday 28th June 3:30pm in school. This workshop will be run by Amy Glass, our "In Reach" worker. This workshop will talk about how to support your child develop their resilience skills. Please let the office know if you would like to attend. Pupils can attend Clwb Hwyl.
Gower Cycling Festival Sunday June 25th (morning) @School Field. All welcome from 9.30 am. We have been asked to be a "pit stop" again for this traditional event. White Rock Events have already sponsored us a wonderful football kit and are also sourcing us some free portaloos for our sports day. We desperately need help to run a BBQ to sell bacon rolls to the riders. Please let us know if you can help. We are expecting 600 cyclist to ride past the school so come along to cheer them on! Hopefully lots will stop for breakfast. We expect the first of the cyclists to arrive around 9.45 am.
Sports Day June 21st 2pm til 4pm - We are hoping to have another great event like last year. Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy a few hours of community time. More details to follow. Big thank you to Gower events who are lending us portaloos for the event.
Mr G's Internet Safety Tip of the Week - With more than 700 million users worldwide, Telegram is a popular alternative to the likes of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger; indeed, in some countries, it’s overtaken that pair to become the most-used instant messaging app. Telegram’s no stranger to controversy, however, and has occasionally been made unavailable for download in some nations (including the UK). For more information to help you have more informed discussions with your children please click here.
Premises Plea - We are always looking to make our environment welcoming, interesting and stimulating. We need:-
- Artificial plants,
- Real house plants
- Interesting ornaments (not too delicate)
- Fake Grass
- Cut logs for seats
- Slices of log for displays
