Do you have any unwanted red Rhydywaun jumpers, ties and blazers lying around at home?
Are you willing to donate these items (which will need to be in good condition) to the Ffrindiau Rhydywaun School Uniform shop?
If yes is the answer, then pupils can bring their items to school next week. Year 11 and 13 are welcome to bring their items on results day (10.08.21 and 12.08.21).
We will be setting up a pop-up uniform shop in school during August. Further details of dates, times and stock we have for sale will be sent to you via ClassCharts and will be posted on the school website, Facebook and Twitter.
Diolch yn fawr iawn
