Summer Fair 2024


Our Young Performers - We're so proud of Matilda and Aria. Here they are in Fantastic Mr. Fox AND Frozen

Bishop Childs and Lisvane Primary schools played an incredible game of NFL Flag Football on Thursday evening. It was amazing to see the teamwork on display from both sides, as well as a really high skill level. Llysfaen is an outstanding NFL Flag Football school and their first team have recently returned from the national championships. We're looking forward to many more quality matches with them in the future.

Look carefully at Caleb’s route. Then watch Ethan track him before launching the perfect pass. Incredible.
