Llangrannog Residential, Wednesday 10th - Friday 12th April 2019

We are all very excited and looking forward to our visit to Llangrannog this week!  


On Wednesday morning, staff will open the doors of the Juniors' Gym at 8.40AM for the children to leave their luggage. It is advisable to pack long sleeved tops and trousers as many activities require arms and legs to be covered. Please also allow for all weathers!


We will arrive in Llangrannog in time for lunch - no packed lunch needed.  You may bring a couple of small packets of sweets or snacks with you.  Llangrannog have advised that there is a child from another school with a very serious nut allergy, please therefore ensure that any snacks have no nut content or trace, thank you.


Could you also please pack a plastic bag for wet clothes and towels, also a small bag in case they are travel sick. Could any travel tablets be taken before pupils arrive at school and any for the return trip should be clearly labelled and handed to the class teacher with the relevant medical forms completed.


Please follow us on Twitter for regular updates!
