On behalf of all the staff we would like to thank you for all of the cards and kind gifts.
We hope that you all have a great Christmas.
Remember school opens again on the 4th January.
Do keep checking twitter over the holidays.
As we near the end of the Autumn Term and Christmas draws closer I know that many of us are thinking about other things (I haven't started my shopping yet!).
I just wanted to thank you all for your support throughout 2016. Being prepared to think of others is a particular strength of Maesglas. Raising money for charity is something that our children, staff and friends do readily and willingly. This sense of community is something very special about our school.
We are here to help and listen to all of our families. If you do have any issues please do get in touch and we will always do our best to resolve any problems.
We do have 1 staffing change in January. Miss Coppack will be out on a Welsh training for the term. This will be a real assest to school and help us to further improve standards in Welsh as a Second Language. Mr Sayers will be teaching the class for the spring term. He has worked with the children before and knows our school well. I am sure you will all give him a warm welcome.
I would like to say a massive thank you to all of the Maesglas staff and the pupils for their hard work throughout the term.
We also appreciate all the support we receive from parents and carers in making a difference to so many young lives.
Finally, I would like to wish all pupils and parents, from all the staff and governors of Maesglas, a very Happy Christmas and a Great New Year.
See you in 2017!!!
In an effort to include more new families in Fun Club Friday we will be running a new rota system next term. Each year group will be invited for a half term session. There is a letter on the way to all children in Year 5 and Year 6 who will be starting off in January.

Many thanks for your understanding.

We are thrilled to announce that we are working in partnership with Roughcuts to be able to offer you the school videos. If you visit the website below you are able to buy and own the school videos.
Currently you can purchase the Reception, Yr 1 and Yr 2 videos from the Christmas Concert. There is also the 'it's a Knockout' video from July.
This offer is a trail. If it goes well we will possibly offer further videos in the future.

We are so proud of all the children right from Nursery To Year 6. They all did so well performing in the concerts. I am sure there will be a lot of tired children this weekend but the Christmas adrenaline will keep them going.
Many thanks to everyone that could make it to support the concerts. Through your very kind donations and ticket sales we have raised £1305.32. This money will pay for the panto and parties for all the children.
My sincere thanks once again.
