Criw Cymraeg

Heddiw, mae siaradwyr yr wythnos yn dosbarth Bedwen ydy Evan, yn Collen ydy Dylan ac yn dosbarth Ysgawen ydy Bradley. Da iawn pawb.

Criw Questionnaire for Parents

Members of the Criw Cymraeg have created a questionnaire for parents, to gain a range of views about what people think is important in Wales / what Wales is famous for. This will add to the work they have been busy doing in preparation of the school's Cymraeg Campus assessment at the end of term. Please support them by completing the short questionnaire below. Diolch

Fundraising concert with Newtown Silver Band

Pupils in all classes are practising to take part in this concert.

Tickets are £10 for the first adult and will be discounted to £5 for subsequent adults with links to school (parents, relatives, etc.)

Tickets can also be reserved through the link below.

West Brom - Money-go-round workshop

Staff from the West Bromwich building society in Welshpool visited dosbarth Ysgawen today to deliver a workshop on money matters. Pupils learned about the vocabulary associated with family finance, the relative cost of essentials and luxuries and the importance of budgeting and saving.

Governor Vacancies

We have two vacancies on our governing body for Community Governors. These can be any member of the community and do not need to have a connection to the school. If you know of someone in Forden who has the skills or experience required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school, and would like this opportunity to help direct the strategic direction of the school, please contact Mrs Fowler.
