Annual Parent Governor Report

Letter 1

Dear Parents

A Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you had an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas. 

We have some exciting initiatives planned this term and we are all looking forward to the term. Last year you may remember that I wrote to you telling you that our inspection was imminent. We are still waiting for ESTYN to call on us. The school has made good progress over the last year and we are never complacent; if you see an area of the school life that you would like to be more involved in eg reading with the children, helping with numeracy, fundraising, farm upkeep (?), sports… please come to see me. Similarly if you think of a way we can further improve please come to see me.

  This letter is labelled Letter 1 and it allows you to keep track of the letters we send out. I also send a tweet to let you know that an email has been sent (the app that we tried is no longer being used) . No paper letters are sent from the office but the classes will send paper letters out that are specific to their classes.

Please can parents be aware of the new speed restriction of 20 mph speed zone outside the school that is likely to be the new legal speed limit soon.

The junior classes are in operation until 3.30 pm.  Please be mindful of this as we have written to you about it before. Please do not let your infant children run and play on the junior patio area and around the ramp as the Junior classes usually have reading sessions at the end of the day and it can be distracting. .  It has also been brought to my attention that small children are climbing on the walls, which could result in nasty bumps.  Please refrain from letting your children do this.

Polite request

If you are unhappy with something at the school please can you see me so I can help resolve your concerns, rather than vent your frustration on social media. I assure you we will do our level best to resolve any issues. We have a common goal and that is the wellbeing of our children . I find it particularly frustrating that the first I hear of an issue is when I hear it has been raised on a site like Facebook. Thank you.

In the last parents survey, 98% of the parents felt comfortable about approaching the school with questions, suggestions or a problem following on from this questionnaire we set up a page on the web site http://www.sansior.co.uk/parents/discipline-bullying/ which details the school’s policy on bullying. Bullying in any of its forms has no place in the school and will not be tolerated and I believe strongly that it is by keeping lines of communication open between school and parents that we can address this effectively. It is sad to say that from time to time bullying does occur at the school. We don’t always get it right and sometimes the issues need to be monitored over a sustained period so that all concerned are confident that it is addressed properly

Thank you to Mrs Emery, Mrs Gill and Mrs Fiona Roberts who supported the school with collecting eggs, feeding the hens over the holidays. Much appreciated

If you feel that you are able to support the school during the holidays please can you let me know. I plan to take a holiday from the school this summer and it would be wonderful if we had a body of parents (and pupils) that could come to support the school. At present Mrs Roberts and I have a rota over the weekend and if you can spare 30mins on a weekend to collect eggs please see me. Thank you. The Egg Enterprise doesn’t make a huge amount of money (currently £3000 in this financial year) but the way our teachers cleverly link the environmental work to raising standards in literacy and numeracy has led to other schools taking notice of what we’re doing. Each year Liverpool Moors pay £275 to send 40 students for a morning at the school led in part by Year 6 students. Year 6 sell pheasant eggs on eBay in April and May which generates £1000, but more importantly teaches the children some valuable entrepreneurial skills. If our rare Monal Pheasants (donated to the school last year) lay eggs, that’s £50 per egg!

Avian Influenza Measures

There is a fair amount of publicity about the Avian Flu at the moment with two outbreaks in Wales to date. We have complied fully with the requirements as laid down by the Welsh Assembly Government with additional mesh placed  to stop wild birds interacting with the flocks we have at the school. We have also limited the movement of birds within the chicken runs so that the hens are enclosed. The measures announced by the government have now been extended to 28th February

Earlier in the week we asked parents of Nursery class to bring wellies to the school. To limit any likely cross infection however we do not need you to do this, and instead the children may use the wellies at the school. Thank you

And last but not least. The doors and gates are locked at 9am and the only access to the school is via the front door. Please be mindful that being late disrupts not only your child’s education but that of others. If you find it difficult to get here between 8.50-9.00am we have the following solutiuons:

*Pre Breakfast Club 8.00-8.30am (cost £1)

Breakfast Club 8.30-8.50am (free)

Children are supervised from 8.50am

*Since we started this in September we have generated enough funds to buy 10 chrome books.

 

Letter 8

FRIDAY 25TH NOVEMBER IS OWN CLOTHES IN EXCHANGE FOR A BOTTLE FOR THE BOTTLE TOMBOLA STALL.

Could we please remind all parents of nursery children to return their application forms for the Reception Class by 9th December at the latest.  If we do not receive your application, we will assume you do not want to apply for a place in the Reception Class. 

Thank you to all the parents and children who donated for Children in Need.  A total of £55.00 was raised!

Over the Summer we commissioned a carpenter to build a storage unit for the children’s musical instruments.  What we are finding is that the children are leaving their instruments at the school and even over the weekend.  This is after several reminders to take them home to practice.  I am afraid that if instruments continue to be left in school, then the school will withdraw the offer of lessons.  A record is now being taken to determine who is taking the instruments home to practice.

Children who normally have packed lunch are invited to join the dinner eaters for a Festive Christmas Lunch.  On the menu will be Roast Turkey Breast, Sage and Onion Stuffing, Chipolata Sausage, Roast and Creamed Potatoes, Carrots, Brussel Sprouts and Gravy or a vegetarian option of Broccoli and Leek Bake.  To follow will be Snowman Log or Christmas Shortbread Biscuit.

The Infants Lunch will be on Thursday 8th December and will cost £2.10 and the Juniors Lunch will be on Thursday 15th December and will cost £2.15. 

The Nursery children are also invited to the Christmas Lunch on the 8th December.  The morning children who will be having lunch will need to be picked up at 12.30pm and the morning children who are not having a lunch will need to be picked up at normal time of 11.30am.  The afternoon children who will be having a lunch will need to come into school at 11.45am and the afternoon children who are not having lunch will need to come into school at their normal time.

Please fill out the slip below and return NO LATER THAN 1ST DECEMBER.  Your co-operation in this matter would be appreciated as the school Cook needs to order food in advance.  Thank you.

Dear Parents

There will be a Eucharist Service led by Father John on Thursday, 17th November, at 10.00 am. 

Children are bringing drinks to school in plastic bottles.  We are finding empty bottles all over the school which haven’t been disposed of properly.  Could we please ask that children bring a drink in a proper drinking bottle rather than the disposable bottles.  Thank you

Bug Club – This is an online resource which tracks the children’s reading progress.  All children will have received a log in to get on to it.  It costs a lot of money to the school and we are noticing that children are not using it at home.  The children read a passage and answer questions which allows us to gauge their understanding of the text.  Could you please encourage your child to use this Resource at home.  Thank you

On Friday 18th November it is own clothes day in exchange for chocolate.  It is also Children in Need so children can dress for the occasion and there will be a bucket in the reception area if you wish to leave a donation.

We use Education City at the school to assist with Numeracy and English. It is possible for pupils to have access to this resource at home for a cost of £2.25.

‘…..we would like to allocate 20 seats, in one of the two land trains participating in the Christmas Parade to pupils from your school.  Any child between the ages of FIVE and ELEVEN years of age is welcome to take part.

They need to arrive at the assembly point at the entrance to the car park at Llandudno Railway Station by 3.15pm for the Parade departure at approximately 4.00pm.  Groups will be met at the station by Council officials who will be wearing identity badges, before being escorted to the land train they have been allocated to.  Children would be welcome to come in some form of Christmas fancy dress, if they wish.

The parade itself will be very carefully marshalled by North Wales Police, Conwy County Borough Council, Llandudno Rotary Club, Llandudno Lions, Town Councillors and other responsible adults who will take care of the children throughout the procession.

Please note there is no seating available for parents on the land trains but they may of course follow the Parade until its arrival in Lloyd Street.  The children will be escorted into the Emmanuel Christian Centre, adjacent to the Town Hall, where they will each receive a gift bag from the Mayor of Llandudno, Cllr Carol Marubbi and Father Christmas.  Parents can meet their children outside the Emmanuel Christian Centre after they have received their gift bag’

Please note that staff from the school will not be supervising at the event, and children will need to be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.  Please let the office know by Wednesday 2nd November if you wish your child to take part.  As there are only 20 places it will be on a first come first served basis.  Please fill out the form below.

LETTER 3

Dear Parents,

 The school council will soon be carrying out an audit on the different modes of transport to the school. I would actively encourage children to walk, scoot or ‘bike it’ to school; in fact children may travel to school using any means of transport at their disposal… If in doubt please ask me.

 The scooters and bikes cannot be used in school so could the children dismount at the steps and walk across the playground. Items may then be stored alongside the mobile if they are in the juniors or if they attend the infants they can be stored next to the boiler house. We would politely ask parents of Nursery / Reception not to leave the bikes / scooters at the school as we have nowhere to store them. Amendment: Please can Nursery / Reception parents lock the bikes to the railings outside the school

 It is also important to note that in common with other schools in Conwy children’s possessions are not insured by the school’s insurance.  We thank you for your cooperation

 Packed Lunches – Could all children take home all their wrappers and cartons and uneaten food.  Could you also provide a spoon or fork if required and a drinking cup as the kitchen will not provide them.  Thank you

 Lost Property – Any lost property will be placed in a new bin outside the Juniors or in a bin placed in the Infants. The children are encouraged to look through these bins and I assure you they will not be emptied until half term. No items are placed in the Salvation Army Bin until you have been notified. If you need to look through the bin please come to the main office and we will get it for you

 Year 6 – we have two residential trips planned. One to Rhyd Ddu in November and another to London in March. I appreciate the cost of these trips is high. In booking the Kew Garden London trip now we were able to save £400 on the cost of transport. More details will follow and you will have the option to pay for the London trips in instalments. Feedback from last year was that the London trip was the children’s most memorable experience while in Year 6 and contributed significantly to the children’s understanding of the Rainforest work. A slight change this year is that we may visit the War Museum instead of the Natural History Museum .  We have booked the whole floor in the Hostel for 2-3 March, 2017.  Having visited the centre last year we were satisfied that the hostel was secure and the children will be in separate rooms to the adults. We will arrange an opportunity for parents to speak to us about the trip in due course to allay any concern that they may have.

Mobile Phones – Children may bring a phone to the school on the understanding that it is surrendered to the secretary’s office at the start of each day

 Admission – Application forms for September 2017 have been distributed to prospective parents this week. The school is currently oversubscribed with no vacancies in any year group.

 Wales in Bloom – The school reached second place this year.

 Wyau San Sior – Please support the school by buying our eggs, jams and chutneys. If the eggs do not reach the eggsellent standard that you eggspect of the school we will always replace for free.  Honey production this year paid for the bees.  Any future honey harvests will be pure profit. The children enjoyed attending the Honey Fair and are currently challenged with calculating profit margins as part of their numeracy. Keeping bees at the school is and continues to be an interesting challenge, with the children involved in all aspects of their maintenance. The main disadvantage is that they poop on the cars in the staff car park!

 Thank you for all your support today for the ‘Wear it Yellow’ Day.

 Keira Brennan has lost a pair of heart diamond earrings after netball this week.  If anybody has seen them, could you please contact the office. Thank you

 

Letter 2

9th September

We are really sorry but there has been a mix up with the school menu due to the children returning back to school on the Monday instead of the Friday.  As Mrs Bassett has to order food in advance, the menu will have to stay as it is for the moment.  Therefore, the menu next week will be Week 1 but as of 19th September the menu will go back to the correct week which will be week 3.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

On Thursday 29th September there will be a Harvest Lunch.  The harvested school apples will be made into a crumble by Mrs Basset and served for pudding with a roast dinner.  If your child normally has a packed lunch and would like to join the dinner eaters for a school lunch, please complete the slip below and return no later than Friday 23rd September.

Are you available the Monday 26th September to help peel and prepare the apples please. Bring your own peelers and please let us know if you can help. Much appreciated if you can. Thank you Those that help can join us for a free slice of the apple crumble

Signed:………………………………………parent/guardian

 

I can help with the peeling of the apples on the Monday YES / NO

 

Could we please have the consent forms returned to school by Monday 12th September for the Year 3 Roman Trip on Wednesday.  If you wish your child to have a school packed lunch for this trip, could you please contact the office asap.

Re:  Dinner Money Payments – As of September 2016 NO dinner money arrears are being allowed to accrue.  If dinner money is not received by 3pm Friday of each week, your child will not be served dinner on the following Monday.  Your child will therefore have to be provided with a packed lunch. The kitchen will be provided with a list of accounts in arrears on the Monday morning.  Payment on the Monday morning will not be accepted as the the Black Box will not be sorted until later in the day.  Dinners can be paid weekly, monthly or by the term.  If your child has dinners on different days, please state which days on the envelope.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Our School Summer Fair is on Saturday. We have 6 parents that have volunteered and would be very grateful if more parents could help support the school in this vital school fund raiser. Please can you email the school or speak to the class teacher if you can help. I’ve also put a poll out on twitter to try and gauge how many are attending. The school staff are giving up their Saturday to organise the event and it would be disappointing if the event wasn’t well attended

Many thanks as always

Letter 27

Dear Parents

Just to confirm that Purple Day where the children wear a purple item of clothing in aid of Cancer Relief is this THURSDAY. I managed to correct my mistake on the Parent App (which I feel is the best way of receiving letters from school) and on twitter with a link to the Parents page on the school web site.  We believe we have everyone’s correct email addresses. Our last paper letter asked you to contact us if no email was received. A handful of parents contacted us so I’m hopeful that my letters are getting to you.

For the Parent App  – it’s free and is called Parent Hub (white background to the icon) and the Channel code you need is Channel code: 28117686 (51 parents are currently subscribed)

 

I’m afraid we won’t be able to have the planned Eucharist this Thursday as Father John is elsewhere

 

It’s another busy week with Year 6 making their annual pilgrimage to Ynys Enlli. You should already have the details. We plan to leave at 8.00 am and hope to return to the school by 5.30pm. All the other details remain the same, see previous letter. If we are running late it is difficult to inform you but as soon as we are back in reception I will send out a message on twitter. Please can you ensure payment reaches us this week

 

Summer Fair is on 2nd July, 11am – 3pm. Please do support this event. Mrs Jones (Reception) and Miss Jones (Year 1) work really hard to coordinate this and it is a vital school fund raiser. No uniform this Friday as it is Cake Day and they will be used in the Summer Fair

David Morgan in Year 5 has organised for Thursday 30th June to be Purple Day in aid of Cancer Research.
All are encouraged to wear a purple item of clothing and to make a donation to this most worthy charity
Thank you

Dear Parents of Year 6

23rd June 2016

Dear Parents of Year 6 pupils

Money due on Monday please for this trip.  Every year we try and take all Year 6 children on a Pilgrimage visit to Bardsey Island off the Lleyn Peninsula, weather permitting.  The cost would be £25.00 per child, and the children would need to bring two bags (very important!) In one bag they will need a spare set of dry clothes to stay on the bus and in the other bag they will need sun cream and a packed lunch. A sun hat would also be advisable. Life jackets will, of course, be provided for each child.

It is important to remember that if the weather is unfavourable then the decision not to cross may be taken on the morning and the trip will be cancelled. In this event we will take the children to another area for a walk and will return £10.

Could you please return the reply slip in the black box as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely

IAN KEITH JONES

Dear Parents of Year 6,

At Ysgol San Siôr the Board of Governors have decided that Sex Education should be a part of the school curriculum. The science topic this term will review much of the work carried out during the previous terms including the human body topic and puberty. The School Nurse will also visit the school on Monday to talk to the children

The teaching materials used will be of a very high quality and that they, and the aspects of the topics covered, will be appropriate to the needs and ages of the pupils at Ysgol San Siôr, within the context of moral considerations and the value of family life.

If a parent feels it necessary to withdraw their child it is important that the parent arranges to come to school and discuss their concerns with the Headteacher. All lessons will be taught in mixed gender classes. Children will know that they are free to question further and discuss issues with their own or another teacher. It is also possible that the children may come home with further questions.

In the event of a child being withdrawn from a lesson that child must stay in school and will be assigned to another class until the lesson is over.

Should you have any queries or would like a copy of the school’s policy for Personal and Social Education please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

 

Ian Keith Jones

Dear Parents,

We have secured places for Year 3 now too …….

On Wednesday Year 4, 5 and 6 will be going to Venue Cymru to take part in CânSing for the day. We need to be there by 9.30am so we shall be leaving school promptly at 9.05am.

If your child requires a packed lunch can we please have confirmation of this by Tuesday morning so Mrs Basset can prepare the packed lunches. Can all other pupils bring their lunch in a bag that can then be used to keep their coats in please.

At the time of writing this letter the weather looks to be favourable but please ensure that your child has a coat.

Diolch

Dear parents

I have organised a mini cello performance at school on TUESDAY JULY 12th at 9.30am-10.15am (ish!) If they would like to take part the children have the opportunity to perform what they are currently learning and also some group work.

Parents/family are invited to come to school and listen to them if you wish.

I hope you can make it!

Please may I also take this opportunity to remind those who haven’t paid (and for last 1/2 term where applicable!) to please make payment for lessons by this coming Friday  24th June. If you have any queries with this then please do contact me.

Thank you for continuing to support your child’s cello playing.

Best wishes

Nicki Pearce

Breakfast in the morning and a hot meal is provided at teatime for afternoon sessions. However, you will need to provide your child with a packed lunch as we have lunch for 12.00pm.

Nightjar Evening Adventure – Year 2-6 only

I hope to take 12 children above Llanrwst looking for nightjars on Friday evening, 17th June, leaving San Sior at 9.45pm and returning to San Sior at 11.30pm. It is unlikely the children will actually see the birds but we should hear their churring song and might see them hawking for food. We will use the bat detector to listen for bats.

The place is awash with midges and the children will need to cover legs, arms and head. Insect replant applied will make the visit more enjoyable for them.

The highest scores from the following quiz will determine who goes. In the event of similar scores then names will be drawn from hats or on the basis of the sentence written

In order to decide who can go the children need to identify the birds found on the last page of this bulletin:

http://www.llennatur.com/files/u1/Cylchgrawn100.pdf

And then translate each name to Welsh by using this page, replace the word orchid with the bird’s name:

http://www.llennatur.com/Drupal7/llennatur/?q=node/6#Orchid

A sentence then needs writing about one of the birds in Welsh. The class teacher will help them with this if necessary.

I’m afraid our Sports Day has been moved to 21st due to an event out of our control. Year 6 are expected to attend Bangor Cathedral all day on the 20th June. Apologies for this change of date.

Thank you to Empire Hotel, Imperial Hotel, Deganwy Quay and Edwards of Conwy for donating to our Summer Raffle. If you have any business contacts that you think might be able to support our raffle please do get in touch. Thank you

Letter 24

Normally we have a Parent / Teacher session on the last Thursday of each month. This will not take place this week as we will be having a meeting to discuss a new South African link for the school. For the last 6 weeks of the term a teacher from Lesotho will work at the school and I hope the children will learn a lot from this experience.

The school Holiday Club is filling up so please contact us if you require a place next week

Remember 8.00-8.30pm will now be charged while the free breakfast club is only available from 8.30am. If you missed the letter a copy is available below

The Pre-Breakfast Club crèche will be run in a similar fashion to the After School Club.

On a Monday you will be required to book your child in and include payment for each day.

The Crèche runs from 8am to 8.30am and then the children remain for the Breakfast Club, which is free and runs from 8.30am. You are effectively paying £1 for the supervision and activities between 8-8.30am

These changes are effective from 6th June

Iau / Thursday                         □

Please note that it is imperative that a slip similar to the above is handed in each Monday or your child can not attend

 After half term we will be making some changes to the Breakfast Club and I apologize to you in advance, but I have had to look at every aspect of the school day in order to maximize funds.

Free breakfast in primary schools is a Government initiative and is a commitment to improve food and nutrition in schools maintained by local authorities.

“Breakfast should normally be delivered as a short period before the start of the school day (e.g. 30 minutes) to achieve the primary purpose of providing sufficient time to enable those children who attend, to choose their breakfast, eat it without rushing and start normal school activities.”

Welsh Assembly Guidance document 145/2014

 However it is fair to say that in essence it is mainly used as a crèche in many areas, enabling parents to get to work on time. In fact many parents ask if their child can stay without having a breakfast as they have already eaten. I know that from my own experience, without this facility I would have found it difficult to get to work on time.

Breakfast Clubs usually start at 8.15am allowing the staff to prepare for the club. This is true in most local schools that I have contacted. However many years ago we decided that we would open our Breakfast Club doors earlier, from 8am, and parents welcomed this as it allowed them to get to work in plenty of time. Children are then supervised until the start of the school day. The Breakfast Club doors close at 8.30am

The changes we will make to our Breakfast Club will take place from 6th June. The Breakfast Club will continue to be free, but from 8.30am only. A charge of £1 will be made to attend earlier than this. The doors to the Breakfast Club are open between 8.30-8.40am

“There may be scope for a low ratio, play-based, fee-charging childcare club to precede the free breakfast session.” Welsh Assembly Guidance document 145/2014

In summary we will continue to offer a free Breakfast Club service similar to the other primary schools in the area, but we will also offer a pre-Breakfast Club crèche between from 8-8.30am.

I can only apologise that I am having to pass these costs on to you as our parents and hope that you can appreciate the school’s predicament.

School Letter 23

Closing date for designing an A4 poster to celebrate Conwy Year of Adventure.  All activities within Conwy

At the end of the day may we respectfully ask parents not to allow the children to renter the school. The use of scooters is encouraged as a mode of transport to and from school. I think some parents are under the impression that they are used during the day and are driving their child to school with a scooter in the boot to be stored at the school. The scooter is then collected at the end of the day.

Access to the school is via the front door. Please do not gain entry via the cloakroom doors at the back of the school. From a safeguarding perspective I believe this is a sensible precaution as we need to be aware of all adults on site at all time.

Thank you to all parents who support the school with reading initiatives. If you would like to join the team and can spare a few hours each week please do get in touch.

I hope my messages are getting to you. The parent hub app seems to be a very effective way of communicating with you

Outdoor Climbing Sessions

 Saturday 25th June 2016

All money raised goes to Ysgol San Sior

 Andy Pearce (father of Thomas and Oliver Pearce) is offering outdoor climbing sessions on Conwy Mountain Slabs (20 minutes walk from Conwy) to raise money for Ysgol San Sior.

Andy is a fully qualified climbing instructor and is fully insured for this activity.

Andy is a freelance instructor but also runs his own business llandudnoadventures.co.uk which you might want to look at if you would like to know more about him!

The sessions will be for 1.5 hours each at a cost of £10 per child with a maximum of 8 children in a session. Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian and the minimum age is 8 years.

 The sessions are all on Saturday 25th June and will be 1) 10am – 11.30am, 2) 12pm-1.30pm and 3)  2pm-3.30pm.

 For each session you will need to meet one of our helpers 30 minutes before your session start time.

Meeting place :  At the end of MOUNTAIN ROAD, CONWY. You will then be escorted up to the crag to then start the climbing session.

Please note that this is a residential area so we would encourage people to please use the public car parks in Conwy. The nearest public car park is on Mount Pleasant which is only 5 minutes walk from our meeting place on Mountain Road.

All climbing and safety equipment is supplied and your child will need to come dressed for the weather with training shoes or walking boots and of course climbing shoes if they have them – but not necessary! They also might like to have a drink/snack with them.

On confirmation of your booking (when you have handed in the booking slip below and £10) Andy will contact you to fill in his medical forms etc.

If you have any questions please contact Andy at llandudnoadventures@gmail.com

 In the event of adverse weather the sessions will be rearranged.

 First come first served!!!!

I sent a letter out last week indicating that the school will no longer be sending paper letters out. Each time we did this the cost was £14

How we will communicate information to you. You have a few options:

  1. E-MAIL – we will email each school letter to you. If you did not receive Letter 22 by email you need to give us your email address
  2. TWITTER – we will tweet a link to the ‘Letter Page’ on our web site
  3. WEB SITE – you can access the letters page on the school web site http://www.sansior.co.uk/parents/letters/
  4. PARENTHUB APP – download the Parent Hub app for FREE, register and enter the channel code: 28117686. DON’T download ‘parenthub connect’. If you have ‘push notifications’ enabled then you will get a notification each time a letter is added to the app
  5. A paper copy of each numbered letter will be posted on the noticeboard outside the school

Dear Parents

Every year we try and take all Year 6 children on a Pilgrimage visit to Bardsey Island off the Lleyn Peninsula, weather permitting.  The cost would be £25.00 per child, and the children would need to bring two bags (very important!) In one bag they will need a spare set of dry clothes to stay on the bus and in the other bag they will need sun cream and a packed lunch. A sun hat would also be advisable. Life jackets will, of course, be provided for each child.

At this stage I am writing to find out what the interest would be, and I would be grateful if you would complete the pro-forma below and return by Friday, 14th May, indicating whether or not your child would like to go.  Year 5 children will be offered places the following week instead of any Year 6  children who will not be going, so it is very important that the children take the responsibility to return the forms and place them in the black box.

If many of the children return the slips we will aim to go. I am very aware that there have been several trips this year and the expense involved. The class still have their Snowdon walk and Abergwyngregyn science event. However the trip has traditionally been a fitting end to their time at San Sior.

It is important to remember that if the weather is unfavourable then the decision not to cross may be taken on the morning and the trip will not be rescheduled to another day. In this event we will take the children to another area for a walk and will return £10.

Should you have any questions please contact me

Yours sincerely

Dear Parents

We have attempted to go paperless in the past, whereby school letters, etc, are sent by e-mail, but many parents have requested paper copies also.  It is necessary now, however, to stop paper copies, and we ask that parents who do not have e-mail to check regularly on the notice boards outside school for up-to-date school letters and other information.  We will post a message on Twitter when a letter is available.  We have had a problem with our e-mail system over the last few months, but this is now resolved.  If, you do, however, find that you are NOT receiving e-mails from the school, +please let us know.  The onus will be now on parents to ensure that they check notice boards, e-mails and twitter for school letters and information.  Thank you,

Sponsored Snowdon Moonlit Walk

 Keiran Weir (Year 6) mum, Sue, has decided to embark on a big adventure (or crazy idea!!)  On the 18th June she will be climbing Snowdon in the dark with a group of fellow walkers, aiming to reach the summit by sunrise.  Hopefully, it will be a gloriously clear, beautiful morning.  Sue has decided to complete this challenge to raise funds for both Ysgol San Sior and St David’s Methodist Church.

If you would like to sponsor her, there is a sponsor form in the foyer/reception area here at school, or to sponsor on line, visit http/mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/sueweir1 (The online site only lists church as a recipient, but ALL money will be split between the two causes)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE EGG BOXES CAN BE RECYCLED AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF THEY COULD BE RETURNED AFTER USE.  THANK YOU!

Don’t forget that places are limited for the Salsa Evening on Thursday, 19th May.  Please book your tickets now!

 Please note that cheques to pay for music or lunches must be made payable to Conwy County Council

A huge thank you to all who raised a staggering £3063 in our Sponsored Walk!!!!!

Thank you to Mrs Hay for her Smartie Challenge initiative.

Our budget is finally, almost balanced, and regrettably means staff hours reduced/redundancy.  We will inform parents at the end of this process.
