Lateral Flow Tests  |   Programme

All parents/carers are encouraged to include their child in the LFT programme. Regular testing, twice a week, is a key tool to help contain and control the spread of the Covid infection; this is even more important with the more transmittable Delta variant. Full details on gaining consent and including your child in the LFT programme are on the school website. The next issue of test kits will be issued last lesson Mon 21 Jun or can be collected from Reception.

Friends of Ysgol Harri Tudur  |   Fundraising Event

Marathon in June Fundraising Event

The Friends of the school are holding a fundraising event throughout June – Marathon in June.

There is a growing body of evidence which is showing the detrimental effect of Covid-19 and lockdowns on children’s education and wellbeing. The purpose of this charity event is to raise funds for a wellbeing garden which will hopefully benefit pupils/students and staff alike. The project has already started; an area has been set aside and fenced off, some outdoor furniture has been provided along with kind donations of plants and other items. The National Park and Tir Coed are also contributing to support this project. But there is much that still needs completing.

The Marathon in June can be completed by running, walking, swimming, cycling, rowing or any other appropriate means; the distance is a marathon and it could be completed all at once or in stages; there is no set course or route to follow. It is open to all ages and all abilities. The only requirement is to complete the distance by the end of June.
