Sponsored Read 2018

As a school we are always aiming to raise the awareness of the importance of reading.

Reading regularly is crucial both to help children improve their literacy standards and to give them the skills to be able to engage in reading for pleasure.

We have decided to run a sponsored read to encourage children to read more and hopefully raise some funds to put towards purchasing books for the children to use in school.

The Holy Name School Sponsored Read 2018 sponsorship form which will go home with your child today can be used to choose a target of how many books your child is going to challenge themselves to read during a 3 week period from Mon 30th April until Fri 25th May.

Once they have decided upon their target they can see if friends and family are willing to sponsor them!

Could all sponsorship forms (including any money raised) please be handed into the office by Wednesday 6th June.

Thank you for your support!

The Community Fridge

Amy came to talk to us about the Community Fridge which has now opened outside the Abergwaun Gateweay Club.

This resource is for everyone in the local community and the aim is to make best use of food that would otherwise go to waste.

The space has a fridge and shelving area where a variety of different food products can be stored and made available for anyone to make use of.

For more information you can go to the website or follow their Facebook page to get updates about the food they have in stock.

This project is part of the national CommunityFridgeNetwork which is led by the environmental charity HUBBUB.

In the afternoon they visited the Waterfront Museum and enjoyed exploring forces with a workshop session and finding out about different games consoles from the 1970’s onwards.
