Dear Families,

Thank you for attending the St David’s Day Concerts on Wednesday during our ‘Welsh Week’, and please call in to see examples of children’s learning on display in Dosbarth Heulog for all to see. This year we have been amazed by the enthusiasm and effort for all class and home learning Welsh activities, and look forward to seeing our pupils represent our school at the Pembrokeshire Schools Urdd Eisteddfod in Ysgol Hafan Y Mor, Tenby on Monday 18th March.

On the eve of the Wales v England 6 Nations Rugby Match, our school choir have performed and entertained shoppers at Tesco, Haverfordwest with Welsh and English songs and raised £221.87 for the FOHS, and all children have joined in with Dawnsio Gwerin Dances to end the Welsh Week.

The non-school uniform day was a hit with the children and raised £52.00 for the School Council and FOHS raised £200.00 from the selling of daffodils and donations at the concerts. We are extremely grateful to the FOHS and Hook Community Council for enabling the purchase of 15 computers for the school.

This term colleagues Mrs Evans, Miss Oriel and Mrs Teevan have been awarded certificates for areas of professional learning and we are all very proud of them. Mrs Holton will be joining UWTSD, Carmarthen, for a 5 week Welsh Sabbatical next half term and we wish her well and look forward to her return in time for the Urdd Residential in Cardiff.

We welcomed the Director, Kate Evan-Hughes to school this week, where she had the opportunity to see the school at work, and meet with children, parents, staff and governors.

In response to a safeguarding concern and also following advice from the Director, we ask that all families and visitors use the main gate in front of the school building at the start of the school day, to enable the double gates to be closed for safeguarding purposes. Mrs Jones will still operate the road crossing patrol at the double gates, and all children know to only cross the road with adult supervision. Only children will be on the yard at the start of the day with staff supervising from 8:40 a.m. Breakfast Club is available, with breakfast being served 8 – 8:20 a.m. and can be accessed by the rear gate, and Mrs Griffiths supervises all children in the hall until 8:40 a.m. This practice will start from Monday 4th March and we ask for your support.

I wish you all a wonderful half-term holiday,

Ms  L. John
