St Gabriel’s Newsletter: March 2024

or such a short term it certainly has been a busy one! We can’t believe it’s time for the Easter break already and wish you a happy and holy time this Easter season. We look forward to seeing you back in school on Monday 8th April.

Over the course of this week, classes have collaborated to lead our school through Holy week with very thoughtful and meaningful liturgies representing the key events that took place. We are very proud of each class for the contributions that they have made.

Please follow this link Palm-Sunday-24-03-24-v1.1.pdf ( for the Mass times at this very special time of year. The timetable for Holy Week and Easter Sunday Masses can be found on page 3. The regular mass timings across the All Saints Parish and wider are on page 4.

Farewell and Thank you

As Mr Reed’s time with us draws to an end, I am sure you will join us in wishing him all the very best for the future. In his time with us, he has worked with every class though the most part being in Year 1 and Year 6. He has been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to hearing about his next adventure.

Friends of St. Gabriel’s: Easter Gift

Thank you to the Friends of St Gabriel’s who provided us with the means for each class to have their very own Easter egg hunt in the hall today.

What a lovely way for us to end this term plus a small chocolate egg prize gift for every child to take home – hopefully next year we will have better weather and we can try this outside on the field!

Chocolate Raffle

Diolch yn fawr to all who bought tickets for our chocolate raffle. We are so pleased to have raised £363 for our school fund that directly supports pupil experiences and resources.

Thank you for your generosity in donating the prizes – this couldn’t be done without your support.

New Waste Regulations

From the beginning of April, the Welsh Government has introduced new recycling legislation for businesses including schools. We will need to make some changes to ensure we meet our legal duty. If we don’t adhere to this there is a possibility the school could be fined. The bigger the bin the more it will cost school. Therefore we want to make sure that we minimise our costs to focus our money on what our school really needs to support our pupils.

While we are also working on reinforcing recycling with the children, much of it is what we already do but we need to be better in following the systems set up – to do this we need your support.

We need to remind you that snacks at break times must be fruit or vegetables. Any waste from these will go into our food waste bins. We will also be reminding children that any rubbish from home packed lunches will be sent home in lunch boxes – this will also ensure that you are aware of what your child is eating from their packed lunch.
