Dear All,

We have received and accepted a request to raise money for the Velindre Cancer Fund, whilst supporting the Welsh Football team in the Euros at the same time!

We ask that the children bring a small donation to school and wear red clothes, on Thursday the 16th of June 2016, when Wales play England.

We hope that it will be a fun day and a successful one for the Welsh football team!

Support Wales by wearing red!

Thank you very much.

Additionally, we would like the children to create a model of a dinosaur of their choice. The model could be made by using clay, cardboard or any recycling material. Could you send the models in to school by Friday 29th of April. We look forward to seeing them!!
