Dear Parents/Carers,


Thank you very much to the school choir and their parents/carers for attending the music service showcase at Whitchurch High School on Tuesday evening.  We look forward to hearing the choir performing at the Summer Fair on Friday.


Thank you to Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 parents/carers for supporting your children’s Sports Day today.  It was a lovely event and very well attended.  I’m grateful to the staff for running everything so smoothly and also to the Year 5 pupils who accompanied the staff and helped a great deal.  Looking forward to the Nursery, Wellbeing Class and Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 Sports Days next week.


A huge thank you to Coed Caerdydd and their volunteers for clearing the raised beds and area around Ty Bronwen.  We’ve found several apple trees so we’re looking forward to a bumper harvest in the autumn!


Thank you so much to all who donated and organised last Friday’s Eid Cakes and Savouries Sale.  It was a lovely and very popular event, and we’re delighted to report that an outstanding £303.07 was raised for the school!


Good luck to the netball team for today’s match against Marlborough which is under way right now!
