Parent Volunteers

The school is very interested in inviting parents into school on a regular basis to volunteer and support pupils’ learning.  Regular support for individual pupils can make a huge difference to the level of progress a child would make over the year.  If you are interested, please contact our Acting Deputy Head Teacher, Miss Slater.  It doesn’t matter if you do not have experience of working in a school. Teachers will offer friendly, helpful advice to help you get started!

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.
