School Council and Eco-committee trip to the Senedd

Today the School Council and the Eco-committee went to the Senedd building in Cardiff Bay to learn all about the Welsh assembly government and the decisions they make.

We were given a tour of the building and a chance to talk to Mick Antoniw AM our local representative at the Welsh assembly.


 The children had lots of excellent questions and asked about the role of the assembly, laws that had been passed and even asked about cuts to the music service.


 We were then given a tour of the committee rooms.


Our guide Gareth explained how the Senedd building is one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in Wales with energy saving lights, rain water collection for the toilets and even ground source heated water to heat the whole building. Lots of ideas for our Eco-committee to use back in School!



A huge thank you to the staff at the Senedd for making us feel welcome, to Mick Antoniw AM for giving up his time to come to speak to us and especially to our guide Gareth who was knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic and explained everything brilliantly for all the different aged children to understand clearly.
Last of all a big thank you to all the children who were polite, well-mannered, full of good questions and really represented Tonysguboriau Primary School excellently today. Mr. Hurford and I were very pleased with all of you. Well done!

Mr. Hussey

Attendance Alert!

Our pupil attendance target for 2014-2015 is 95.6%. Attendance is currently around 93%. 
Please help us to achieve our target by sending your child in to school every day. Please follow our policy of reporting absences to school either by telephone, letter or in person. 
We are here to help. If your child is a little unwell but able to come to school, we can administer prescribed or over the counter medication that you bring in providing you complete a very simple form.

Your child's attendance in school is vital! If they are not in school they are missing out on important parts of their education that they will never get back.

Our revised policy for attendance will be available on HWB+ .

I will be sending your child's attendance percentage from September to now home shortly.

Please continue to work with us to achieve or exceed our challenging target of 95.6%.

Many thanks for your support. Have an enjoyable weekend.

Eco-committee success!


Today our Eco-committee learnt that due to their hard work and especially the hard work of the last two Eco-committees, we have retained our Platinum Green Flag award status, making this our SIXTH Green flag award.
For the last 12 years we have had a successful Eco-committee as part of our School working hard to improve the environment, our school grounds, local area and working hard to improve understanding about environmental issues.
Pictured are: (left to right) Keiron, Eleri, Agatha, Owen, Jason, Emily, Niamh, Evan, Ellie and Ryan.
Eleri has also been chosen as our Eco-committee chairperson for the year and we are looking forward to our joint trip with the School Council to the Senydd in Cardiff Bay.
