It has been another fantastic year for the children at Rhydri Primary School.  Miss Slater and I would like to thank the parents and the wider community for supporting the school over the Summer term and helping the pupils continue to be well behaved, polite and hard working; it has been greatly appreciated.  We wish the very best for the Year 6 pupils who are moving on to secondary school.  They have acted as role models for everyone in school and should feel very proud of all their achievements.  Thank you also to the teaching and support staff.  Their ongoing commitment to their respective roles ensures that they have played a major role in the success of the school.

Most of all, however, we would like to thank the children across the school for their continued positive attitude to their learning and their overall contribution to the school.  It is an absolute pleasure and a privilege to be part of Rhydri Primary School.

Children’s last day in school will be Thursday 20th July and they will return to school on Wednesday 6th September. Nursery pupils will return to school on Monday 11th September.

Have a wonderful Summer break and we look forward to welcoming our new Head Teacher, Mr Richard Cook in the Autumn term.

Lost property

There are a number of items of clothing currently in lost property.  These will be on display at the end of each school day on the playground until the end of the school year.  Any clothing left after the end of this school year will be given to Rudry Rascals to be recycled.   Everyone is very welcome to come into the playground to see if any items belong to their child.

Outstanding Fees

If your child attends one of our After School Clubs, the fee of £15.00 is now due for the Summer Term. Any cheques should be made payable to Rhydri Primary School.

If your child receives tuition for a musical instrument in school, the fee of £25.00 is now also due for this Term.  Any cheques should be made payable to Caerphilly County Borough Council. Thank you in advance.

Foundation Phase Art Open-Morning – Thank you

Thank you to all the parents/carers who joined us for our Art open-morning last Friday. The morning was a huge success and it was a fantastic opportunity for us to share with you the wonderful work the children have been completing in class. As always, your support it greatly appreciated.

Thank you to Rachel MacManus for taking videos and photographs throughout the morning and creating the following films:

(The first film is longer and includes the talks given by Miss Bodenham and the teaching staff and the second film just has shots of the day and the song)

Lost property

There are a number of items of clothing currently in lost property.  These will be on display at the end of each school day on the playground between Wednesday 12th – Thursday 20th July.  Any clothing left after the end of this school year will be given to Rudry Rascals to be recycled.   Everyone is very welcome to come into the playground to see if any items belong to their child.

We kindly ask that all pieces of school uniform, including PE kits are clearly marked with children’s names to greatly reduce the amount of unclaimed uniform.

Year 6 Leavers’ Assembly and Instrumental Concert – Monday 17th July at 1:30pm

On Monday 17th July at 1:30pm, we will be hosting our termly instrumental concert. In addition to the usual performances, year six children will also be participating in order to celebrate their time here in Rhydri Primary School and mark their transition to the High School. This promises to be a lovely event for the children before they move up to year seven. Parents and carers are very welcome to join us for the assembly, which will be held in Rudry Village Hall.
