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.

Bag2School Collection – Reminder

Tuesday 24th January 2017 will be an opportunity for children to donate any unwanted clothes as part of our termly Bag2School collection.  All donations will be reused by people in developing countries who do not have access to many of the items which we take for granted.  A money donation will also be given to school based on the weight of the entire collection of bags.
