Clothes Bank

Dear Parents,

We have organised a clothes recycling drop off point at the school with a  locally-based textile recycling company Dragon Bags in order to raise funds.

Dragon Bags works only with schools across Wales and by getting involved in our clothes recycling scheme, you will be able to help raise funds for our school, help the environment by diverting items from landfill and also help our local firefighters gain much-needed support.

Our School will receive £300 for every ton collected (30p/kg).

To get involved simply place all your unwanted clothes, paired shoes, bags, belts, etc, in a plastic bag and place in the bin. The more we fill, the more money will be raised and spent on the pupils.

All items must be in good reusable condition (so please nothing ripped or stained). The collection will start today and will be for a limited time.

Let’s all get involved and have a great collection, thank you in advance.

Please tell other members of the community too!

Many Thanks

RACE FOR LIFE

 

Dear Parents / Carers,

 

As part of our ‘Book of the Term and Health and Well-being weeks’ we are setting the pupils a challenge ‘ Our Race for Life’ . On Friday May 21st the pupils will have the opportunity to take part in running/ walking laps of the school. Could you make sure they have a P.E. kit on this day.

We will not be sending out sponsor forms but if you would like to make a donation for cancer research UK, we have set a parent pay account for you to pay in your donations or you can donate on the day as we will have pupils collecting at the gate. All proceeds collected will be donated to cancer research UK and all pupils who take part will receive a Race for Life medal.

 

Many thanks for your support.

With access to libraries, classrooms and bookshops limited for many,  we’ve been busy finding some of the best online storytimes for children to access freely at home. The QR codes and links in the document link to story readings on Youtube and all of the books we’ve chosen are read aloud by their fabulous authors and illustrators.

Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine  Reception – Year 6

Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine  Reception – Year 6

This year, if a child was absent on the day the school nursing team had visited to offer the nasal spray flu vaccine, we will not be sending letters to parents/guardians advising you to hand it in at your GP practice when you arrange for your child to receive the vaccination. This is due to current IP&C advice on handling of paper.

If your child was absent when their ‘class bubble’ was vaccinated, but you consented to the vaccination, you need to arrange with your GP practice for your child to be vaccinated.

Your help is greatly appreciated

Kind Regards,

Clare Donoghue
