Another School Year Come and Gone!


Well, we can’t believe that another school year has come and gone!

We would like to say a very big thank you to our PFTA who have raised over £4000 this year. We really do appreciate all their tireless work in raising funds to enhance the children’s learning experiences.

The children have enjoyed super school trips this past year; Years 1 and 2 visited Green Meadow Farm where they saw Dipsy the Cow being milked, rode on a tractor and enjoyed a lemonade ice lolly. Reception children visited Porthkerry Park; they went bug hunting in the woods, ran through the meadows with butterfly nets and built dens in the woods; the den ranger tested to see if they were waterproof by throwing a bucket of water over them! Great fun was had by all.

Year 6 had their Leavers Assembly last Friday. It was super occasion, with the children sharing memories of their time in Wenvoe. There was a lovely slide show of baby photos and the staff and children alike all enjoyed guessing who was who! Following the Leavers Service, they then went to Cosmeston Lakes for a barbecue. We wish them every happiness and success as they move onto the next stage of their education.

Our musicians and choristers gave a wonderful musical soiree on Wednesday when they entertained family and friends with their wonderful recitals. Thanks must also go to our music teacher, Mrs Jones, for her excellent work and dedication.

Councillor Penrose (Vale of Glamorgan) and Alun Cairns, MP, visited school this morning to present certificates for the runners up and winner of the Vale of Glamorgan 500 Word Writing Competition: Highly Commended was awarded to Sienna Kelly, Amelia Rees, Poppy Davies, Taryn Tyson and Oliver Fulthorpe; In third place was Tori Bellamy; second place went to Rhys Hill; the winner was Milly Jorna. A very big well done to all who took part and of course to the winners.

We are very sad to say goodbye to Miss Kerry Williams, our reception teacher, who leaves us today to return to Pembrokeshire. Mrs Woodiwiss, our dinner supervisor and LSA support is also leaving today. Mrs Maunder is beginning her maternity leave today. We wish them all every happiness for the future.

We wish you all a very happy summer – fingers crossed that this beautiful weather continues.

WE look forward to seeing you again in September!

The Gwenfo Team.
