What a week! On Monday morning I came into school with mixed feelings as it was to be my last week with you all as head teacher before handing over to Mrs Lloyd for 2 years.
However, there was no time to get too sad because, as always in Maesglas, we have so much going on I didn't really get time to think about it.
I start with GWE from the 1st April although I will be based in school up to the Easter holiday.
I know Mrs Lloyd will be a fantastic Head and she will be surrounded and supported by a team of staff, governors, parents and children that are ready to help.
I am very proud of our school and will be spreading the word of all the great work we do.
The school will flourish with Mrs Lloyd as head and a team of hard working and dedicated staff.
All future posts and emails will be from Mrs Lloyd
Have a wonderful Easter.
Signing out as head...Mr Cass
Parking in and around school is continuing to cause concern.
Our number one priority is ensuring that children are safe walking in and out of school.
Could I please ask that all motorists be more cautious and think before they park. Inconsiderate parking is causing congestion and blocking people in.
All motorists should be cautious and think before they park.
We have contacted the Local Authority and they are advising residents to call the police on 101 in the event of any blocked drives.
It is that time of year again already...egg competition.
The rules are simple.
Any designs you like using any materials you like as long as a hard boiled egg or eggs are in there somewhere.
Closing date will be Monday 8th April so judging can take place on Wednesday 10th April.
It will cost £1 per entry. This helps to cover the cost of the Prizes. We have 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each class.

Bringing Kindness To Classrooms
The Kindness Book has arrived in school. It invites children to recall small acts of kindness with each other and document them through drawing and writing.
We hope that through the process of recalling these moments, children will come to learn how kindness is an important aspect of society and carried through a community by its members.
How It Works
The Kindness Book is a way to show how small acts of kindness are carried through our communities by creating a chain of interlinked stories. It's really simple:
1. The first student thinks about a moment of kindness with a friend in class, documents this moment through drawing and writing, and passes the book onto the friend that was mentioned in the story.
2. This friend then writes about another moment of kindness and passes the book onto a third student..
3. The Kindness Book is passed from student to student until the book is full.
You will know if your child is playing in the Liam Simpson football festival tomorrow.
Owing to the grass pitch at Holywell Town FC being waterlogged, the festival venue is now the 3G pitch at Holywell High School. The timing of the festival is now 1:00pm – 2:45pm
Sorry for any inconvenience that this late change may cause.
Please find a link to the 'Healthy Lunchbox' at https://beta.gov.wales/healthy-lunchboxes-leaflet
The new leaflet is based on the Eat Well Guide and is largely aligned to The Healthy Eating in Schools (Nutritional Standards and Requirements) (Wales) Regulations 2013, going further in terms of suggesting maximum portion sizes for fruit juices (150ml).
This is part of our whole school approach to health and wellbeing.
Sorry for the short notice but we can confirm that the Pentre trip is on.
