Swansea Foodbank Donations

At this Harvest season we are once again appealing for your generous donations of non-perishable foods to donate to the Swansea Foodbank. The appeal was introduced to the children in this week’s junior assembly. The appeal will be open for the next two weeks until Thursday 12th October. Below is a list of urgently needed food items from the Swansea Foodbank website. Thank you in anticipation for your generosity.

Year 5 Netball News

Netball tues 17

The Year 5 netball team had a fantastic end to the school year playing an excellent match against Parklands Primary. They showed how much they’ve improved and worked brilliantly as a team to earn an 8-4 win. Well done girls!!

Thanks again to Alison Brown for the huge effort and commitment she puts in every week.


Congratulations to Sketty School Chess Team for winning the West Wales Junior Chess League for the 3rd year running.

In a nail-biting final match with St Josephs Tristan Xuan drew his game after an hour of tense play and this meant a 2 1/2 – 1 1/2 victory.

Thank you to all the squad who have played on a Wednesday night since October.
