D6's Remembrance Assembly with Royal British Legion friends

Year 6 Leavers' 'RockFest 2019'


Our Year 6 boys and girls had the most fantastic time at their leavers' 'RockFest 2019'. The parents created a mini festival to celebrate the children's time in Graig Y Rhacca Primary and Nursery Community School. At 'RockFest 2019' the children had fun on a rodeo bull, relaxed in tents, ate delicious food, listened to a live band and they even had a glitter tattoo or two!

Thank you to all the parents who made the festival possible, your hard work and support is greatly appreciated. Thank you also to all the parents, carers, grandparents and friends who sponsored our pupils to ensure they had a fun packed festival.

Mini-Police Programme


Well done to the boys and girls who represented our Year 6 Mini-Police squad at an assembly in Bedwas High School this morning. The Mini-Police shared with PC Madley their concerns regarding litter, vandalism, graffiti and anti-social behaviour within the community so we joined the assembly to ask all the pupils in KS3 to support and help our community work. Tnank you to PC Madley for all his help and support.
