May I thank you all for your understanding on Friday when the disruptive weather meant that we were unable to safely open the school for our Pupils. The closing of the school is never a decision that we take lightly and your child's safety is always paramount when such decisions were made.
With the snow and ice that was present around Trelewis, and on the school site, both myself and the Chair of Governors both felt that, due to the conditions, it was not worth risking the safety of our pupils - therefore the school was closed. All schools in Merthyr Tydfil were closed on Friday.
Our aim was to communicate this closure to you as soon as possible so that arrangements could be made for your children. Hopefully this message came through to you via the Merthyr Tydfil website, school twitter and Text service.
Thankfully this snow only lasted for a short spell and we were able to reopen the school and get back to normal running today.
Thank you for your continued support,
