Friday September 9th
On behalf of all the staff at Waunarlwydd Primary School, we want to express our sadness on hearing the news of the death of Her Majesty The Queen. The children should be commended for the respect they showed as we marked the occasion today!
The funeral is expected to be held at Westminster Abbey in about ten or 11 days time, with the date to be confirmed by Buckingham Palace. It may be declared a bank holiday, but this will be confirmed by the palace and government. If a bank holiday is declared, schools will be closed and we will keep you updated.
It has been wonderful to welcome our pupils back this week. The smiles and laughter around the school, as staff and children got to know their new classes, has been a pleasure to see! We are sure that we can look forward to a great year together as a whole school community!
Meet the teachers
During the week beginning the 19th September you will have the opportunity to hear more about Curriculum reform in Wales and what that means in Waunarlwydd, meet you child’s teacher and find out about topics, routines and plans for the year. These meetings will take place at 14.50 in the school hall and will end in time for pick up. If you cannot make a meeting we will post information on the website or send it home. We will send out plans for a Nursery event later in the term!
