Ysgol Brynrefail Friends

"Y Byd i'n Disgyblion a Disgyblion i'n Byd"

We are a group of parents, friends and teachers of the School who meet occasionally to arrange social activities. The money raised is used to provide additional resources to help the children enjoy school life.

The meeting as usual will be informal and an excellent opportunity to meet other parents and support the school.
