Tuesday 6th March – Sport Relief ‘Step Challenge’

As part of this year’s Sport Relief celebrations, Sport Caerphilly will be delivering a road show linked to this year’s Sport Relief ‘Step Challenge’. The national target set by the organisers of this year’s event is 1 billion steps and with the support of Rhydri Primary School, the pupils will contribute to the nation achieving this goal.

The roadshow will be delivered by Sport Caerphilly coaches and staff and will consist of a variety of sports for years 3 to 6. The sessions will last 30 minutes per class. The sessions will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday 6th March. Please ensure children have their PE kits in school to enable them to take part.

This is a great opportunity for the pupils in Rhydri Primary School to showcase their contribution to such an important cause and have a lot of fun while doing it.

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.
