Caring School


Thanksgiving collection.

Dear Parents and Friends,

Homelessness has been a prominent feature in the news of late, and has inspired many of our pupils to ask members of the School council to focus on supporting less fortunate people within our community. 

As a result, and as part of our Thanksgiving assembly, we will be donating a variety of toiletries to help the Huggard centre in Cardiff, with their work in supporting homeless people in our city.

Following a conversation with the centre, please be aware that they are in desperate need of toiletries at the centre. Please find the details below

: toothbrushes, razors, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, and deodorant especially.

We kindly ask that you donate an item by Friday the 4th of November. Should you prefer, a financial donation would also be warmly accepted.

For more information about the centre and its work, please visit the website below.

Thank you for your support

Parkinson’s Use Your Head




School Council – explaining a fundraising challenge


Annwyl Rieni / Dear parents,

Rydym wedi bod yn trafod codi arian i elusen ar ôl derbyn 3 cais gwahanol.

Rydym wedi cynnal trafodaeth a phleidlais ac rydym wedi penderfynu cefnogi elusen

Parkinson’s. Os am fwy o wybodaeth, edrychwch ar y wefan isod.

We have been disguising raising money for charities after receiving 3 letters of requests from different charities.

We’ve held a discussion and vote, and have decided to support the charity for Parkinson’s disease. For more information go to the following link.

Byddwn yn gwisgo penwisg am y dydd – het ddoniol/wig liwgar, a gofynnwn i bawb fydd yn cymryd rhan i ddod â chyfraniad ariannol i’r elusen.

We will be wearing a head dress for the day – a funny hat/colourful wig, and we ask       everyone who takes part to bring a sum of money for the charity.

Mae 476 o blant yn yr ysgol. There are 476 children in the school.

Os byddai pawb yn dod a 50c =£238 If everyone brings 50p.

Os byddai pawb yn dod a £1 = £476 If everyone brings £1.

Os byddai pawb yn dod a £2 = £952 If everyone brings £2.

Bydd hyn yn digwydd ar Ddydd Gwener 22/4/16 a bydd gwobr i’r het orau!

It will take place on Friday 22/04/16 – there will be a prize for the best hat or wig!

Diolch yn fawr!
