Newsletter 9th October

Dear Parents/Carers                                                           

WHEELS FOR A WEEK! A huge thank you to everyone who made the effort to travel to school using wheels last week. It was wonderful to see the bike shed full of bikes, scooters and skateboards. We appreciate it might have taken extra effort and organisation but the children clearly enjoyed it and no doubt it did their health and wellbeing the world of good. We hope it will have inspired some of them to travel to school using their own pedal power more often!

Overall, a grand total of 604 journeys were made to school on wheels (infants and juniors included) and 397 by foot. Well done to you all! 

A raffle was made on Friday afternoon, whereby £290 was raised for Ty Llywelyn and the school PE fund. Tilly Alford Lane was the lucky winner of the bike. Thank you to all those who contributed and helped make the week a success.
