All Year 4 – Year 6 pupils are welcome. We will meet every Friday after school from 3.30pm to 4.30pm. Please ensure you have comfortable footwear and a jacket as we will be going up into the woods as well as using the hall and playground. Please see Miss Tomaszewska for further information.
Creation club runs every Monday from 3.30pm to 4.30pm. Any pupils in Year 3 to 6 can join. There will be a variety of activities based on eco activities, gardening, looking after the local community, our school environment and delivering campaigns based on creating a better world. Come along and give it a try! We will be gathering ideas of things the children will like to do.
Our Rosary club runs every May and September, the first being the month of Our Lady and the latter being the month of the Holy Rosary.
The Rosary will be said every lunchtime during these months. We have rosaries in school but if your child wants to bring in their own rosary into school to keep in their tray, they will be very welcome to do so.
We are the Criw Cymraeg of St Padarns school! Each of us was voted by our class to be members of the Criw Cymraeg. Our aim is to get children speaking lots of Welsh through hosting lots of fun activities, assemblies and a club.
As the Criw Cymraeg, we have a responsibility to help improve Welsh in our school. We encourage pupils and staff to use Welsh as often as possible! Recently, we have been holding weekly Welsh assemblies where the ‘patrwm yr wythnos’ (pattern of the week) is taught, changing the Welsh working wall display, running the weekly fruit stall and preparing for an initiative called Welsh Wednesdays whereby each class now has a bag of Welsh resources that go out to the playground and the children can chat, play games and complete Welsh activities during the break times. We have even bought a portable sound system so we will be able to have Welsh music playing this week!
Diolch am ddarllen am ein Criw Cymraeg | Thank you for reading about our Criw Cymraeg.

We are the Mini Vinnies of the St. Vincent de Paul Society! There are currently 20 of us from Dosbarth Rheidol, Ystwyth and Aeron. We come together with the local adult SVP to help tackle poverty in all it’s forms both in our school and local community.
So far, our Mini Vinnies have had weekly meetings to pray and think of ways to help people, have given a school assembly to introduce themselves and have visited Hafan y Waun to chat with the residents and give them hand made cards.
We look forward to continue “Turning concern into action”.
Our Faith Ambassadors are responsible for helping pupils and staff to live out their prayer life. They lead some of our collective worship assemblies, set up and decorate prayer areas in our school, and help to set up for Mass.
We have organised playpods so that we can use them at lunchtimes. We have dustbins which will hold the equipment so we can have the playpods out. We would love some new items for the playpods, such as old handbags, scarves, shirts.
We are also trying to get our children to bring water only as a drink. Since the lockdown we have a lot of children bringing squash which is very bad for our teeth if we are drinking through the day. Our policy is water or milk to drink through the day and fruit or veg sticks for snack. Please also remember we are a nut and sesame free school – this includes no Nutella in a sandwich at lunchtime.
Our Bronze Ambassadors attend training sessions with Ceredigion Actif, and make sure that we all stay fit and healthy! They run Fit in 5 activities during last play on Fridays.
Both councils meet during first play on a Wednesday.
Our Digital Ambassadors are responsible for improving the DCF skills of both pupils and staff in the school. They come in to classes to deliver short lessons on coding, and run a Coding Club at lunchtime on Friday.
Digital Ambassadors meet weekly on Wednesday during lunch play to plan their activities.
