Croeso Nol!

Welcome back to the new term. We hope you have had an enjoyable Summer, despite the varied weather conditions. Summer holidays are the time that we recharge our batteries and should all now be ready to face the challenges ahead. We welcome all of the children who are returning to Tonysguboriau, those who are new to the school and our new Nursery starters. We look forward to working with you as parents and guardians. Our aim is to provide the best for all of our children and with your help we know that we can do this.
Good luck to our leavers who start the next phase of their education. I am sure they will continue to excell in everything they put their minds to do.
Enjoy the term, which is without doubt, always the busiest!
Signing out!
Mrs Bailey and team.

PTA News

Just a note to say a HUGE thanks to ALL those who have baked cakes, manned stalls, helped clear up, helped at a disco or whatever your contribution may have been. We couldn't do any of the events without the help and goodwill of so many parents / staff / grandparents etc.

This school year we managed to raise just over £3,500 which for a small school is something to be proud of and we hope to do even better next year. 

As the school year is drawing to a close, I thought you would like to know what your fundraising efforts have helped the school to buy. So, together with some of the money we raised last year we have purchased: 

Cross Country Kit - We made a contribution of £87.50 to purchase cross country kit with the school emblem on them. The children now look like a 'proper team' when representing the school at cross country events;

Junior Yard - We were able to contribute £1,500 towards the cost of the repainting of the junior yard. The yard now has a football pitch and lots of other games which the children seem to be really enjoying;

Easter Hunt - The PTA organised and funded an Easter Egg hunt for all the children;

Clean Up Day - We spent just over £700 on all the costs associated with the clean up day, from paint, brushes, bark, plants, pots, bacon rolls, tea and coffee and skip hire;

Year 6 Prom - Each year the PTA pay for the Bus and Disco and from the pictures, it looks like they really enjoyed themselves;

Gazebos - We bought 5 gazebos to provide shade for the children on sports days. 

Playground Equipment - We have just handed over £4,000 to Mrs Bailey. This will go towards a new piece of play equipment for the junior yard. This will be ordered over the summer.

Don't forget to check out the PTA page of this blog or join the 'Tonysguboriau Parents' page on facebook for details of upcoming events. 

Enjoy the summer, 

Amanda, Sharon and Yas

Thank you to everyone for taking part in our diversity day today. It was a great chance for us to celebrate the diverse nature of our school with many children from different backgrounds, religions and cultures coming together to learn at Tonysguboriau.
A HUGE thank you to Mrs. Richards and Mrs. Raison who produced this amazing diversity cake for us all to enjoy. The detail in the different people is amazing and you have really captured the diversity in Tonysguboriau.

Year 2 bakery

Attention all Foundation Phase Parents!
On Friday 26th June, Year 2 will be selling baked goods during the morning for Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children to buy. This is all part of their Supermarket topic where the children have: researched into different bakery items, carried out surveys making tables and graphs, costed ingredients and worked out profits, designed posters and letters, baked the products themselves and will sell the food on Friday. All of the products are between 20p and 50p and include welshcakes, chocolate rice crispy cakes, pizzas slices and cupcakes.
If you could please send your child in with some money on this day to help the year two children with their entrepreneurial activity this would really benefit them.
Thank you for your continued support.

Mr. Hussey.

Sports day

A huge well done to all of the children for taking part in two great sports days.
A very big thank you as well to all the parents who turned up, took part and helped to tidy away the chairs and other equipment.
It was so great to see so many children getting active out in the sunshine!

Harp Ensemble

Today we were treated to a beautiful harp ensemble from the music service.  They performed many modern and classic songs, which the children sang along too.  Mrs Stokes and some of the children were brave enough to have a go infront of the whole school!
