Kris Jones is going to be climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland, and Snowdon in North Wales, and was hoping to raise funds for Ysgol Cedewain in the process. Kris said he would like to raise money for our school because special education needs is a large part in his life, as his brother has autism.
He hopes to earn money for classroom supplies. Every little helps.

A priority for Powys County Council’s new 21st century school building scheme is an innovative and state-of-the-art build to replace the outdated school in Plantation Lane, Newtown.
Approximately £40million has been included in the project for Ysgol Cedewain, ensuring that the most vulnerable pupils in Powys get the high level of care and facilities required.
Mr Graham Owen, Chair of Governors at Ysgol Cedewain added: “The Governing Body is very pleased that, after many years of campaigning for a new school in view of the dilapidated condition of the current buildings, Powys County Council is intending to provide a new school and much improved facilities for some of the most vulnerable pupils in Powys. The Governing Body hopes that building of the new school will commence at the earliest possible opportunity to alleviate the very difficult situation with the current school’s infrastructure. The Governing Body would also like to pay tribute to the high standard of care and education provided by the staff at Ysgol Cedewain in very difficult circumstances.”
The site of the new build has not yet been decided but more updates will be on the way.
On Friday the 29th of September, we here at Cedewain showed our support for the Macmillan charity once again by participating in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. We had a brilliant turn out and an ever better variety of cakes. The senior pupils did a great job with the help of staff at setting everything up in the top school.
We here at Ysgol Cedewain raised in the region of £200.
The team behind the Cedewain Times, has had a busy couple of weeks and has published their first edition of the school’s newspaper. The newspaper is filled with information of what has been happening in the school in the previous half term. They look forward to your continued support.
