Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 15th December

Friday 15th December is Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day. We would like pupils and staff in Rhydri Primary School to join in with thousands of people from all over the country for this great event and wear their wonderful woollies to school!

All donations will be given to Save the Children. If you do not wish to donate, we would still love to see all children in their festive jumpers.

Children in Need

This Friday is ‘Children in Need’ day. With all the effort that will be going in to the preparations for Rhydri Book Day next week, we thought we would keep things simple and have a ‘Pyjama Day’ on Friday with a suggested donation of £1 to go to the charity.


Thank you for all the contributions that were made to support our Harvest Festival. The children were brilliant and it was great to see both schools together sharing this event. All food donated will be distributed by the Bridging the Gap food bank.

Harvest Festival

Rhydri Primary and Bedwas Juniors will be sharing their Harvest Festival together at Rhydri Village Hall with Pastor Edwards on Tuesday 10th October. If the children could bring in a small food donation on the day, we will pass this on to ‘Bridging the Gap’, a Caerphilly based food bank.

Non-uniform – Rainbow Day

Along with many other schools in Caerphilly, Rhydri Primary School will be taking part in a “Rainbow Day” this Thursday where we will be inviting all pupils and staff to dress in brightly coloured clothing, in order to raise money for Mia “Rainbows Warrior Princess”.

Mia Chambers, from Merthyr Tydfil is just 5 years old and last year she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma. She has already gone through chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy here in the UK, but now she needs further treatment in America.

We are asking children to donate £1 to wear their bright clothing on Thursday to help the family get a little closer to their target. This is optional and children are welcome to wear their bright clothing regardless.
