Harvest Festival

Our Harvest Festival took place in St. Silin’s Church on Wednesday 25th October at 2pm. We raised over £50 towards the Anaphylaxis Campaign. Thankyou very much/ Diolch yn fawr iawn.


Fondest Farewell

As many of you are aware Mrs Ann Edwards has now left her position after many happy years working at Ysgol Bro Cynllaith! We miss her already but wish her all the very best in her new endeavours. Don’t worry, we now have a new Mrs Edwards, (Lesley) to take over the baton. I would like to thank Ann and Lesley for helping to ensure that this transition has been as painless as possible!


Impact Schools

Darren Mayor came into school on the last day before half term. The theme for his assembly this time was to ‘try your best’ and ‘not give up’.


Cycling Proficiency

Pupils in Year 6 all successfully completed their cycling proficiency training on Wednesday 8th November. Luckily the weather was kind and they did so well that they completed it in one morning! Da iawn chi.


Severn Trent

Mrs Claire Dare came into school on Friday 10th November to give an assembly on saving water. She also held a water workshop with members of the school council.
