STAFF CHANGES @ SULLY PS
Mr Williams writes:
‘It is with a great deal of sadness that I inform you of the retirement of Mrs Clare T. Williams (Nursery) at the end of this academic year. Mrs Williams has been a stalwart of Sully Primary School for the past 23 years and has touched the lives of many individuals and families through her dedication to the school. Although we will miss her greatly, we hope that Mrs Williams enjoys the next exciting chapter of her life.

Miss Eaton will also be leaving us next year, albeit for just one academic year, as she embarks on a sabbatical at Cardiff University to develop her Welsh language skills. Miss Eaton will not be a stranger to us as she will join us during the spring and summer term for one day a week where she will put her newly acquired skills to good use.

As a result of the above changes, the school is undertaking a recruitment drive. When we have completed this process, we will inform pupils and parents/carers.’

ROYAL WEDDING CELEBRATIONS
We have had a great day celebrating tomorrow’s wedding! Photos will be put on the website soon, so keep an eye out for them.

MUSIC AUDITIONS
Please find attached details of the upcoming auditions for the CCAVC ensembles. We hope that some of our budding musicians will try out !

CLASS PHOTOS NEXT WEDNESDAY
The school photographer will be coming in on Wednesday, 23rd May, to take class photos from Nursery to Y6 and also individual photos of Y6 children. Please ensure that your child is in school uniform that day, including a jumper or cardigan, without which they may not show up against the backdrop!
