Dear Parents and Carers,
As you may already be aware we work very closely with Ty Hafan who provide family hospice care and support for young people suffering from serious and sometimes terminal illness. Over many years Ty Hafan have supported a number of families and students from Crickhowell and our Student Council has decided to nominate our next Non Uniform Day to support this worthy cause. Our receptionist, Mrs. Mutlow, is also entering The Three Peaks Challenge this year as part of our fundraising for Ty Hafan and students and staff are running a number of coffee mornings to raise additional funds.
Therefore, on Friday, 24th May 2013 we will be holding a Non Uniform Day and asking students to bring in at least £1 as a donation to Ty Hafan. As this is the last day of the half term and for Year 11 their last full day in school before their examinations, they have opted to wear uniform on this their last day and to hold their Non Uniform Day on the 21st May 2013: students have already been notified of this.
We appreciate parents reminding students that a Non Uniform Day does require dress to be appropriate for school and therefore not too short or too revealing, particularly in warmer weather.
If you wish to send in a donation or support Mrs. Mutlow by sponsoring her in her Three Peaks Challenge we would be delighted to hear from you.
