PTA Fete - big thanks

Congratulations to the PTA committee for organising this year's Summer fete which took place in the school grounds last weekend. The whole village came out to support us and the total amount of money taken on the day was in excess of £1500. Once the expenses had been deducted we raised just over £1100 for the PTA funds. Mr Hughes, the Young Mr. Jones and I took turns to go into the stocks and several pupils took their revenge on us. As it was such a super day weather wise, it was advantageous to be wet on such a hot day. This year the PTA has donated a Smart Board for Year 3 and a superb shed for the Foundation Phase equipment. Thank you to Mrs Sims and the other parents who work so hard in arranging such a great day. If you want to be involved in helping the PTA visit the PTA page on the school website for details.

School Calendar

I have recently added a link to a school calendar which will contain up to date details of school activities. Click on to reach this facility. We will add all dates and times of trips and other information when available.

Mrs Davies

Mrs . Catherine Davies, our Reception Teacher and Foundation Phase Leader has been appointed to a similar post at St David's Church in Wales Primary School, Colwinston in the Vale of Glamorgan. Mrs Davies takes up her appointment in September after being with us at Gelli Primary for over twelve years. Mrs. Davies has been instrumental in managing the preparations for the implementation of the Foundation phase. She and the remainder of the Early Years and Key Stage One staff have worked tirelessly to give our children the best possible start to their education. Mrs Davies will leave us at the end of the term and she goes with our best wishes and we hope that she has every success in her new school.

We're back

Major technical problems have prevented us from updating this site since the beginning of term. But I'm glad to say that we're back.

Please look on the Governing Body pages for electronic copies of the Summary and Full Annual Report to Parents. There is also a letter confirming the details of the meeting on Monday 6th July.
