Here are this week's headlines:-
The North Gower Partnership are requesting that from Monday all parents, carers and visitors wear masks when entering the school grounds or premises. This includes when dropping off and collecting pupils. As the wearing of face masks becomes normalised in society, the Swansea Education Directorate supports all schools in this matter. Many thanks for your co-operation as we strive to ensure the health and safety of our whole school community. Please ensure you pass this message on to any relevant members of your family or network.
