Dear Parents and Carers,
Our Attendance now stands at 92.5% (Down from last week)
Swansea Target 95%
Llanrhidian Target 96%
The pupils are really enjoying our school field with this dry weather. This year we have really targeted collaboration skills through providing pupils with equipment and activities that promote "working together". I am thrilled to say that the results are very evident as the pupils are working and playing so productively. A huge well done to the pupils who are making us very proud.
We still have too many families arriving after 8.55. This is unsettling for the pupils concerned, their classmates, as well as causing additional work for staff who have to run back and for to the gate. Registration and lesson start at 8.55. Please help us to make the most of all the pupils' learning.
Can you help? We do have a number of premises issues that we help with. These include a new fence for the orchard and removing rotten wood from Pili Pala and Pengwin's yard. If you are able to help us with expertise, please let us know. Here are the headlines this week:-
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.
