CHRISTMAS DINNER

Please remember to send your child with a packed lunch on Thursday if they have not already requested a school Christmas Dinner.  All children will be able to join in the festive atmosphere in the hall on that day.

 

OLIVER! PERFORMERS

Please can the children performing in ‘Oliver!’ on Wednesday evening return to school soon after 5.30pm – they will not be admitted any earlier.  Thank you for your co-operation.

 

LOST FOOTBALL BOOTS

Has your child brought home a pair of Adidas red and black football boots in error?  Please check your child’s kit.

 

Clearly-named lost property is always promptly returned to its owner!

 

SCHOOL CLOSURES

As we approach the period for bad weather, we need to be sure that we can contact every parent by text in the event of a school closure.  Mr Williams has today sent an email explaining how to ensure that your details are up-to-date on ParentPay – please look at this over the weekend.

 

Some parents may encounter a problem registering or verifying their mobile phone number, if this is the case please let the office staff know first thing on Monday morning and we will endeavour to sort the problem out for you.

 

In the event of a school closure we will also send a ParentPay email, tweet any information, update the school website’s ‘Stop Press’ area and inform the Vale of Glamorgan council.

 

CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY

On Friday, December 15th we are inviting pupils to attend Sully Primary wearing a Christmas themed jumper.  Whilst enjoying this Christmas fun, the Sully Senedd have requested that children bring in £1 that will be donated to the local children’s charity Ty Hafan.

 

You will know that we have recently decorated a Snow Pup (named Hector) for Ty Hafan and we will soon be welcoming Hector back to Sully Primary on a permanent basis if we can raise the required donation – PLEASE HELP US!  Thank you from the Sully Senedd.

 

EXTRA ‘OLIVER’ TICKETS

There are still a few tickets remaining for the Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning performances of ‘Oliver’, but Wednesday evening’s performance is sold out.

 

If you would like more Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning tickets, please send your money in a clearly-labelled envelope.
