What a week! A huge da iawn to our pili-pala, pengwins and pysgodyns for their wonderful shows. It was an absolute pleasure to see them all so confident and happy on the stage. Diolch to all you grown ups at home, who supported the shows by bringing costumes, props and by buying a cuppa... every pound really does help our school to "be the best it can be". Diolch yn fawr to our wonderful staff for all their brilliant work in helping ensure the pupils shine. It is over to PryCop now who will perform Joseph next week. If you know of anyone who would like a ticket we still have availability for both Tuesday shows and Thursday afternoon. The bigger the audience the better! Our pupils and staff have worked extremely hard and cannot wait to perform!
With budget cuts, and less staff to do the same amount of work, we are asking for your help and support. Unless urgent, please could all communication be made via email rather than phone calls. If you need to speak to a member of staff, please request this in an email and we can get back to you when we can. I hope you understand our plea, as it would really free up staff to do the core workload expected of schools.
Our booking system remains open for our 'Early Bird Craft Club' and 'Clwb Ceirios' for the spring term. Please ensure that the form is filled in and payment is made at least 7 days in advance. Please click here to book your slot. We are currently not making enough next half term to cover staffing costs in either club. With your support this can all change and secure the clubs for another half term.
Here are the Christmas Term headlines:

Mr G's Internet Safety Tip of the Week: Regularly update the software on your child’s device to protect against security vulnerabilities. Cybersecurity is crucial due to the widespread use of technology in modern life. It helps to minimise the risk of cybercrime, which involves stealing money or information through digital technology. Keeping your devices up to date with the latest software and apps is an effective way to improve your security. Please click here for more information.
