Green Flag Award

Hooray! We have achieved Green Flag status, which is fantastic! This is in recognition of the many steps we have taken towards making the school increasingly eco-friendly. We are very proud of all the hard work and commitment the pupils and staff have put in to achieving this award. As soon as the flag arrives we will be holding a flag raising ceremony!

Tag Rugby

All pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 will be taking part in the Tag Rugby tournament at Cobra, Meifod on Wednesday 16th September. They will be sharing a coach to and from the event with both Llangedwyn and Llanrhaeadr pupils. It is an all day event, so they will need a packed lunch, drinks, PE kit, tracksuit bottoms and a warm waterproof jacket. They will be accompanied by Mrs Evans and Mrs Morris.

Rotary Club ‘Lifeline’ event

Year 5 pupils attended Park Hall on Thursday 10th September. They experienced a range of ‘real life’ scenarios, which hopefully they will have learnt some lessons from, (such as the age required to ride a quad bike!)
