Christmas Raffle We have sent raffle tickets home with the children last week. There are cash prizes to be won and the PTA will be looking for donations from local business. If you would like to donate a raffle prize please let the office know so that we can include your details in our social media. Thank you in advance for your support with this.

St. Paul’s Church Craig y Don Christmas Tree Exhibition – we, as a school will be supporting this event by providing our very own specially decorated Christmas tree.  The event will take place from Friday 3rd December to Sunday 6th December – further details to follow.

School Absence Reminder – if your child is absent from school for any reason, please remember to e-mail/text the school before 9.30am – please do not phone if possible, as we try and keep the phone lines free for urgent matters.  Many thanks

Future Christmas Jumper Days Reminder – we will be having a Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 17th December – donations if desired please towards St. David’s Hospice.

The last day of school will also be a Christmas Jumper Day (no need for a donation).

Footballs on Junior Yard reminder – please can junior pupils avoid bringing in any leather and/or heavy segmented footballs to school.  Pupils are welcome to bring lightweight fly-away balls instead.  Many thanks.

Covid Symptoms- ReminderWe do still have Covid measures in place although some have been relaxed and our response to a positive case will not lead to whole contact groups being asked to isolate.  One of the key factors in ensuring the success of the current measures is that we keep the virus out of school.  Therefore, we ask you to ensure that you do not send your child to school with any Covid symptoms or if they are unwell.  An Update on the current isolation guidelines can be found at the end of this letter.

Christmas Plays etc – further information will follow in due course.

LOST PROPERTY – we have a number of cardigans/jumpers/water bottles in school without any names on them.  Please ensure you label all your childrens’ belongings.  Thank you.                 

Packed Lunches reminder – to reduce the risk of choking, please ensure any grapes/cherry tomatoes provided in lunchboxes / for snacks are cut lengthways.

School Meals – please ensure that you pay for any meals in advance via Parent Pay.  Free School Meals – if you feel your child/ren may be eligible for Free School Meals, please apply on-line via the Conwy County Borough website following this link (the application form is at the bottom of the page) –
