Welsh Phrase of the Fortnight
We continue to encourage everyone to use Welsh throughout the week. We are trying to use simple familiar phrases to help develop our speaking skills. Please encourage your child to speak Welsh as much as they can out of school.
Our Welsh phrase of the week for this coming week will be:
Sut mae tywydd heddiw? – What is the weather today?
Maendy is a ‘Rights Respecting School’. The United Nation Article 28 states ‘every child has the right to have a primary education’. We are linking our attendance performance to this article.
Absences and Lates All absences must be reported to our school office by 9:00am by leaving a message either at the office or by telephone. We thank you again for your co-operation with this matter. Any children arriving late to school must be taken directly to the school office by the parent. We must respectfully request that children are not lifted over the fence into the outdoor classrooms as this is a health and safety issue.
