School Blog Friday 23rd September 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,


As we head towards the last week in September we are all getting excited for our marquee.  This will be up for 6 months and be a huge asset to our learning as well as our community events.  This year we have been very fortunate as Cllr. Richard Lewis has kindly paid for this from the community budget.  This generosity will help us greatly during the financial pressures, and will benefit our pupils, their families and the wider community.  Thank you Mr Lewis! 


It is going to be a very busy term, so please share our blog with family members so you can all keep up to date and attend our community events.  Here are the headlines this week:-


School Uniform - Thank you so much for the donations of good quality uniform, we are circulating these as requests come in.  Please keep them coming!  We no longer hold any new uniform in the office, and this needs to be purchased from Bergoni or Wipeout Ordering online is the quickest way to receive your goods. 


Marchnad Mis (Monthly Market)  - We will be introducing our pupils to the world of business and work by holding a community market in our marquee each month.  Our first event will be on Thursday October 20th and we have had a number of local stall holders interested in attending.  To launch the first "Marchnad Mis" we are combining it with our very own Harvest Market.  (Remember these before Covid?) Each pod will be promoting and running their own stalls to sell something homegrown, homemade or free trade.  Look out for more information from your pod soon! The marchnad will run from 1.30 til the end of the school day.  If you do visit the market and wish to collect your child early so they can attend with you, we will accommodate.  There will be tea and coffee available.    Please bring your own bags.  This will be a cash only event as there is no wifi signal in the field.  

Caffi Cynefin - Our first caffi morning was a fantastic event.  We had amazing feedback from our customers, and it promises to be even busier next time.  Thank you to those who donated cakes, or turned up to support.  Well done to our amazing pupils who were absolutely excellent.   We will be open again next Thursday at 10am-12pm at Llanrhidian Community Hall.  Please send in any cake donations to school or bring along to the hall.   We hope to see you there!

Monster Ball Wednesday October 26th (After School)  -   There will be a disco in the marquee (run by Mr G); refreshments (hot  dogs and cakes); fancy dress (pupils and adults) and lots of fun! Thank you to those who have volunteered to help, we will finalise times very soon.  If you can support the event with donations of cakes to sell, we would be most grateful.  Weather permitting - this will be an outside event.  


Curriculum Design Day 24th October 1.30-3.30 in School Hall - Again this is another event we held annually before covid.  Asking parents to come in, talk to the pupils and see what our school offers has been such a vital part of our curriculum design.  Many of the changes we have made over the years have come from the pupils themselves, as well as you, the parents and carers.  Your views really do matter to us, and it is important that we know what you think is going well, and what you think we can improve.  Our older pupils will be running the event, so please come along and join in the discussions. 


Have a wonderful weekend,

Mrs Caswell
