Dear Parent/Carer,


While it was a great pleasure to welcome staff and children back to school after the summer break our first week ended sadly, with the news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II.  Children shared an assembly looking back at her life and achievements.  Lakeside and the Governing Body send condolences to the Royal Family at this sad time.


A big thank you to the PTA for organising and setting up this afternoon’s Uniform Sale, the proceeds of which they wish to donate to the Pakistan Floods DEC Appeal.  Thanks to all of you for your support.

Cardiff Catering is offering a full menu of hot meals as we begin to roll out provision of Universal Free School Meals to Reception children in the first instance.  Please see the attached for UFSM information.

We will be celebrating Shwmae Day on Friday October 14th.  Pupils and staff are invited to wear something red and there will be activities and competitions where we enjoy speaking Welsh to each other.
