Indoor Athletics

Pupils in Years 5 & 6 attended the Indoor Athletics event at Llanfyllin High School on Friday 23rd February. The all had a great time, competing in over ten events. Thankyou to Mrs Evans and Mrs Sarah Evans for transporting them.

Fairtrade afternoon

A big thankyou to Mrs Eyres and the school council for an excellent afternoon showcasing everything Fairtrade. There were presentations, competitions, various activities and a raffle. This great prize consisted of a delicious box of Fairtrade Products, which was won by Jack Thompson (Year 4).

Thankyou also to the parents who came along to support. Diolch yn fawr iawn.


Unfortunately we had to close the school for 2 days at the end of last week due to the extreme weather. Thankyou to Mrs Wendy Jones for maintaining the paths around the school and generally ‘keeping an eye’ and Mr Huw Evans for clearing the car park once again. Let’s hope that is the last of it!

School Eisteddfod

This has now been rescheduled for Wednesday 21st March at 2pm. Family and friends are all invited.

Parents’ evening

As you are aware Mrs Eyres will be leaving at the end of the term to begin her maternity leave. We would like to fit in a Parent’s evening before she leaves! This will be held on Thursday 15th March – for both classes. Please fill in the attached form with your time of preference and we will accommodate on a first come, first served basis.

Severe Allergy Reminder

Just a gentle but very important reminder not to send any nut-related products into school – thankyou for your continued cooperation.

World Book Day Tokens

All pupils received their token for a free book this week.

Cross Country

Unfortunately this event had to be cancelled and no new date has been arranged as yet. However it is hoped that the Llanfair Caereinion event will go ahead next Thursday 15th March, after school.

Swimming gala
