Ffarwel Miss Mared17.07.15 - Good Bye to Miss Mared

It is with regret and sadness that we have to say 'good-bye' to Miss Mared at the end of this term. She has given us two years of faithful service and is the children's favourite. Thank you for being so willing to help everyone Miss Mared - and always with a smile. The school's loss is someone else's gain!

Diwedd TymorAt the end of term, thank you to all the staff who made the effort to attend this afternoon and made sure that our Blwyddyn 6 pupils ended their time at Ysgol Cwm y Glo with the attention they deserve.

We hope you enjoyed the infants' presentation under theu guidance of Mrs. Morgan and Miss Smith, the original song courtesy of Miss Jones and your friends in Marchlyn class, and the afternoon of fun with Miss Mared, Rebecca, Miss Johnstone, Miss Williams - and of course Anti Janet - in charge!

23.06.15 - School Councilllywodraethwyr

Mrs Oliver wanted the children's ideas on what they considered the school was doing well, and what needed to be improved. As a result the School Council met with the Governors to share ideas. Unfortunately it doesn't seem likely that the children's hopes of a grassed area on the yard is possible - but other matters such as the 'awr aur' and the toilets are being attended to.

27.02.15 - February News

Following the vist of the Guide Dogs to the school recently, we have secured an opportunity to adopt and sponsor a class of new puppies selected for training. As a result, for the next two years, we will be contributing a proportion of any money raised by the school (not the PTA) to this charity, as our contribution towards their training costs. We look forward to receiving regular visits to the school and we will get regular updates on our puppies’ progress.

Thank you to the ‘P.T.A,’ for their contribution of £600 towards maths and science resources and a new ‘Reading Record’ for each pupil.
