❄❄❄Little Ferns Maerdy and Little Ferns Cwmparc closed tomorrow. Apologies for any inconvenience. Hopefully see you all on Tuesday ❄❄❄Prynhawn da,
We have carried out a risk assessment of the school site this afternoon and have reluctantly made the decision that it will not be safe tomorrow. Freezing temperatures overnight will mean that ice and snow on pathways and parking areas will pose a significant hazard, and so the school will be closed to both pupils and staff. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Another busy week here at Little Ferns Cwmparc, following our interests last week with the spiders and hide and seek with the animals, we decided this week to have a bug hunt. Children had lots of fun exploring the school grounds hunting high and low for our large bugs. St Patrick's Day activities have been well underway by printing shamrocks using apples. Finally due to the snow we celebrated World Book Day today. Children enjoyed dressing up as a character from their favourite book and had the choice to chose their own book to draw a portrait on. Well done to all. ...

At Little Ferns Maerdy we had lots of outdoor fun today!The children got to explore digging for bugs in the mud pit, going on the gruffalo trail, fishing and chopping vegetables.

The Generations Together project aims to plan event/activities that will create opportunities for children, young people, and adults to spend time together building relationships, and sharing experiences/skills which will in turn break down barriers throughout the generations. A prime example of this would be our Tuesdays session at Ferndale house, where the wonderful children, and Mrs Shepard attend each week. This week They decided to take along their choir where they sang beautifully to for the residents. As they say a picture speaks a thousand words, everyone looks like they are having so much fun! A BIG thank you to all staff, and pupils from Ygg Llyn Y Forwyn for their continued support. ...
The individuals who attend day centre were still talking about it today; all had a wonderful time and look forward to he next visit.
Mrs Williams also enjoys the opportunity to communicate in Welsh with the children. Your visits bring so much joy to the individuals at Ferndale House each week.

Ferndale Infant School - Community Hub Consultation DayMarch 13, 2018, 10:00amThe Fern PartnershipFollowing the closure of Ferndale Infant School last year and lots of speculation within the community about the plans for the building we are extremely excited and proud to announce that The Fern Partnership have been successful in their business plan and will be developing this centre in partnership with RCT CBC.
The Council is committed to developing Community Hubs where key Council services and third sector partners are co-located to deliver services to local communities. Taking this into account Rhondda Cynon Taf Council therefore proposes to move the library to the former Ferndale Infants building where it will form part of a larger multi-purpose Community Hub, working alongside us the Fern Partnership and other Council services to offer a wide range of cost effective services to the local community.
We would like to take this opportunity to inform the community that we have positive plans to develop this into a centre Ferndale residents and the Valleys can be proud of, offering childcare and community activities for all generations as well as the relocation and improved library facilities.
If all plans run smoothly funding the centre will be open to the public January 2019.
We have been consulting on social media with the community since August 2017 and are looking to compliment the online feedback with drop in sessions and open days in both the former school and library, as well as provide an online questionnaire. Drop in sessions will take place:
* At the school, 13th March between 10am - 12 noon and 4 & 6pm * At the library on 7th March between 9am - 12 noon
The online questionnaire will be available shortly.
Please be careful with the plans to move the library, when they closed Maerdy library they said it would open as a hub with books to lend out but it hasn’t happened, the books are not changed and managed as a library would be, I would be very wary of this move .

The objective and ethos of the trust is to advance the education and opportunities for students as well as the wider community.

Please would all our lovely community members share the questionnaire below:
Please would you be so kind as to spend a few minutes completing this short questionnaire regarding the proposed Community Services and Facilities to be based at Ferndale Infant School which will help us develop a Community Hub the Community want and need.
