A very big thank you to the DWR Community Council for the donation of 9 i-pads and various accessories on long-term loan to the school. This will have a really positive impact on the activities we have planned.
Many thanks to the intrepid team of volunteers both young and younger who came to Rhydri on Wednesday in half-term and worked on clearing our wonderful garden area! This was organized by Ms Lewis. We are now looking to develop this walled garden as an area that can be nurtured and used by children and staff across the school. Any ideas or offers of help will be gratefully received.
We have received reports from two schools in the area that pupils have been followed to school by a small white transit van, with a couple in it. No other details unfortunately. The Police have been informed.
A very big ‘thank you’ to Mrs Eveleigh, Mrs Arnold, Ross John, Carl Burton and Jamie Goddard for the hard work they put into the outside area of Rainbow Class last weekend. We all appreciate this and it has made such a positive difference to this busy part of our school!
Thank you to the staff, pupils and PTA who ran stalls at the Machen Show on Saturday. The day was a huge success with the year 6 raising funds for their annual Leavers’ Trip – Thank you to everyone who donated. Thank you also to the PTA for your commitment to the school; your support is greatly appreciated and your cakes, as always, were amazing!
