Here is wishing you all a very happy and peaceful Easter break at the end of what has been a term full of achievement and activities. We are so proud of all our pupils and grateful for all the time, energy and efforts of our staff. On your behalf, I thank all those involved in all the trips and visits including Cardiff, Aber Falls, the local park, RSPB, STEM event in Venue Cymru and so on and so on. Huge congratulations also to the pupils who took part so successfully once again in the Urdd Eisteddfod and good luck to them in the National round in Bridgend in May. If you can help us in any way with fund-raising or sponsorship for this event, please get in touch. Thank you to everyone.
