Urdd Eisteddfod, Cardiff Bay

Good luck to all the Melin Gruffydd children who are competing and performing at the Eisteddfod this week down in the Bay. Come and support them and experience lots of activities in Welsh. It is possible to follow all the performances live on S4C and we will also be posting photos of Melin Gruffydd competitors on our social media sites.

Our first performers are in the opening ceremony tonight (Sunday) live on S4C at 7.25pm


Good luck Miss Walker

It was a sad day for the school today as we said our goodbyes to Miss Lisa Walker. We are very thankful for her dedication and all her hard work over a number of years.

Best wishes to you Miss Walker in your new job!


Online payments for school lunches

During the week after half term, we will be issuing guidelines for booking and paying for school dinners online.

It is our intention that the new system will be in place for the second Monday after half term, June 10th. You will need to choose and pay for your child’s lunch in advance on the Parentpay website. You have already received Parentpay passwords but we will re-distribute these after half term.

The school will not receive cash or checks for paying for school dinners from June 10th.

You will still be able to pay with cash but this will need to be done at the nearest Pay Point centre. You will also be able to order school lunches or sandwiches for a single day, a week, half term or season.

This new system will be a big change for you as parents and for us as a school but I am sure it will be much more convenient for us all in no time. Full details to follow.

Social media – photos

Dear parents,

The school makes extensive use of social media, particularly Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. To ensure consistency in what is shared, starting next week, the school will publish images on Instagram and then they will be linked to Twitter and Facebook. I urge you to join Instagram to see the pictures in their original form, not as links.

I would also like to remind you that the school publishes news and information on our website – and dates are published on our calendar.

Yn gywir,

Mr Illtud James
