Dear Parent/Carer

 

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your support and understanding during some recent difficult times following severe weather and industrial action. Hopefully we will have more stability next term.

 Staffing

At the end of this term Miss Erin Good will officially be finishing with us and will start her new role as head of the Science faculty at Ysgol Penweddig. Fortunately, she will continue to teach Science to Year 10 and 11 until the Whitsun half term. I would like to thank her for her contribution to the school; to congratulate her on her promotion and wish her well with her new challenge.

I would also like to send my good wishes to Bethan Edwards as she starts her maternity leave.

 Eisteddfod Activities

It’s been a very busy term with many activities being provided for the children including opportunities to compete at the Urdd Eisteddfod.  I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the best to those competing in the National Eisteddfod in Builth Wells in May and to thank those staff who have given of their time in order to arrange practices.

 Welsh Sinfonia

I would like to thank Mark Eager and the Welsh Sinfonia musicians for providing valuable opportunities for the children to perform in public under the wing of the Welsh Sinfonia. I would also like to thank the peripatetic staff for their untiring support and Mrs James for coordniating the  project.

 The Welsh Language Charter

One of the school’s priorities is to achieve the Welsh Language Charter Bronze Award. It is our aim to promote the value of bilingualism and the concept of multiculturalism. Many interesting and diverse experiences have already been provided to the children, such as In Character shows, the Candelas gig, Welsh nursery rhyme workshops with the singer Siân James – read all about these events in this edition of Ein Bro. We look forward to welcoming the singer Elin Fflur to the school in the near future. We will also try our best to inform you of opportunities to learn Welsh in the community; see the advert for ‘An Innovative and Speedy Way to Learn Welsh: Say Something in Welsh’.

Finally, I would like to wish every success to all the children who are undertaking statutory tests and external exams in May. I encourage everyone to make the most of the time that they have between now and then, to revise thoroughly so that they reach their full potential and avoid disappointment come results day.

 Wishing you a happy Easter,

Yours sincerely

Dafydd MB Jones
