Indoor Athletics

Pupils from Year 5 & 6 travelled with pupils from Llangedwyn school to Llanfyllin on Friday 6th February. They took part in lots of different events and achieved some great results.


All pupils in Key Stage 2 went to Theatr Hafren, Newtown on Wednesday 4th February for the Jambori. They enjoyed it so much that they have chosen one of the songs to sing in their choir in the school eisteddfod.


As this exciting trip is getting nearer we require the balance and the health declaration form in by Friday 13th March, thankyou.

Eisteddfod & Bake for Bobath – IMPORTANT change of date

This will now be held on Wednesday 11th March from 1.30pm. Any donations of cakes would be very much appreciated. Everyone is welcome/Croeso i bawb.

Trip to Pennant

Key Stage 2 pupils and teachers had a very enjoyable and interesting day at Llangynog, on Wednesday 25th February. We visited Pennant Melangell Church in the morning, where the 'Keeper of the shrine', Reverend Lynette Norman, spoke to the pupils about the church and its history. We then went up to the top of the Berwyn mountains for a picnic lunch and a run-around! In the afternoon we looked at the features of the U shaped valley of Cwm Rhiwarth and made field sketches. A big thank you to Mr Dewi Morris for leading the day and sharing his vast knowledge and expertise of the area with us all.

Cross Country

Some pupils in Key Stage 2 will be taking part in the cross country event at Llanfyllin High School on Thursday 5th March. This takes place after school, and parents will be asked to help transport their children. Letter to follow for those interested.

Red Nose Day – Friday March 13th

Pupils can make their faces funny for money (small donation). Ideas can be found at the Red Nose Day website here:

Our resident sheep!

Following concerted efforts from some parents, the sheep that has taken a liking to the school grounds will be leaving us at the weekend. Thank you to Malcolm and Sara Jones and Geoff Williams for all your help.
