The last week of the spring term is almost here, and everyone is feeling excited for our fashion show later today. The pupils have worked extremely hard on repurposing recyclable items to express themselves! Be sure to have a look on Instagram later to see their fabulous creations.  With Easter just around the corner, we look forward to finishing the end of the term next week with our annual Easter Extravaganza! See below for more details. 


A huge diolch yn fawr for supporting our 'Red Nose Day' event and Matthew's House by sending in non perishable items, this really will help others across Swansea to have a better Easter. Diolch! 


If you are out shopping over the weekend, please could you support us with a small prize for our Easter hampers.  A huge thank you to those who have sent in their prizes already.  If you know anyone who is willing to provide a larger "stand alone" prize, please let us know.  We have a great following on Instagram now, and can use this to say thank you to local businesses. We will be drawing the Easter raffle on March 22nd in our special Easter assembly.


We have secured a £3000 grant to help develop a fully functioning kitchen for our pupils to learn life skills.  Obviously this is not enough so we will be putting any money raised from "North Gower Knees Up" at Oldwalls towards this venture.  Our Caffi is thriving, but we are ready to take the pupils' learning to the next step.  Budgeting, designing and preparing food is an essential life skill, so we are extremely excited about this venture. To book a table for this spectacular event, click here.

Here are the headlines this term:  


Easter Eggstravaganza Event - We are very excited to be holding our  Easter Eggstravaganza  on Thursday 21st March and  are  praying for a dry day.  If you are able to help out with any Easter cakes, cookies, soft drinks etc, please send them in. 


We are excited to announce that our pod Pili-Pala will also be showcasing their creative Easter bonnets in a festive parade starting at 11am on Thursday 21st March. Parents are invited to come and cheer on their little ones as they proudly present their adorable and imaginative creations. Don't miss this special event!


Due to the Easter Bonnet parade there will be no Plant Bach next Thursday 21st March. The next Plant Bach will be on April 18th which is the second week back after the holidays! Looking forward to seeing you then!


Here are the details for the day:-

  • 1.30pm gates and Caffi Cynefin will open. There will also be take out drinks  sold from Siop Cierios.  (Please note only the front gate by bus bay will be opened for safeguarding reasons)
  • 2.00 - Easter Bonnet Parade begins  - The route for this will be dependent on the weather, but don't worry you will all get to see your child parade in their lovey bonnet. 

After the parade the pupils will return to their pods.  If you would like to collect them at this point just stand in the usual pick up place and the teachers will see you.   This is an opportunity for parents and community to come together for a chat and a catch up, so please feel free to use our outside benches or our caffi and enjoy the occasion.    


Mr G's Internet Safety Tip of the Week: Make sure your child only downloads age-appropriate apps and games.  We know how important it is to keep children safe online. That's why Hwb have made helpful guides, giving you a detailed overview of apps and games, including their age rating and key terminology. They also point out any potential risks that each app may pose and provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to enable parental controls and safety settings. The guides can help start conversations with your kids about sensitive issues.  Please click here for the guides.
