July 2017:

Dear Parents / Carers

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support during a very busy year for everyone, between ESTYN’s visit at the beginning of February and the preparations for the new building which are now well under way.
I would like to wish all the best to the staff who are leaving the Primary Campus this summer. Mrs Anita Schwartz and Mrs Eleri Lewis are both moving to work for Powys NHS. I would like to thank the two of them for the care and guidance they have provided to the children in the Sunshine room during the past years. Mrs Siân Evans and Mrs Alwena Price are leaving after 18 years of tireless service to the school; Siân is going to work as Welsh language officer for Meirionydd Mudiad Ysgolion Meithrin and Alwena is retiring and taking a well-deserved rest. Miss Mary Griffiths has only been at the school for a year, but in that short time she has made a significant impact and we are very grateful to her for work with the Year 1 children in her care. We wish her all the best in her new post at Ysgol Meifod.
On the Secondary Campus we bid farewell to Mrs Nikki Taylor & Miss Kelly Fleming. Nikki will follow her interests with the Army and Kelly will start her new job at Ysgol Uwchradd Pontypridd
A huge thank you to the two of them and best wishes for the future.
In September we will be welcoming Miss Eleri Wyn to the PE department and Miss Rhiannon Law to the Specialist Unit. Mrs Carol Lewis & Mrs Julie Price have been appointed to share the responsibilities of the post of teaching assistant in the Specialist Centre and we wish them all the best with their new responsibilities.
We look forward to welcoming Finley, Hattie, Cadell and Geraint to the Reception Class in September and the new Year 7 pupils to the Secondary Campus. A large number of students will also be returning to the Sixth Form.
A Level results will be shared on Thursday 17 August; GCSE results on Thursday 24 August and school will reopen on Monday 4 September.
Wishing you a happy summer holiday and a safe return in September.
Yours sincerely

Dafydd MB Jones
