*Friday Update – The fallen tree has been speedily cleared by a local tree surgeon, so all yards and gates are now accessible.
SHWMAE SU’MAE DAY
On Monday/Dydd Llun, we are marking Shwmae Su’mae Day by inviting all children to attend school dressed in the colours of the Welsh flag – red, green and white. We will be undertaking activities celebrating Cymraeg – led by our very able Criw Cymraeg posse.
This year’s Harvest Festival celebration will take place on Thursday 18th October. We are once again collecting food for the Vale Foodbank, and this year they have asked Sully School to contribute tinned rice pudding, tinned vegetables and pasta sauce.
Thank you in anticipation of your usual generous donations.
