School Closure due to Water

On Wednesday November 25th we had to take the decision to close the school early, at 1.15pm. We noticed that we had no water. This meant we were unable to use the toilets and also caused us some difficulties with other hygiene issues.


We contacted Welsh Water who told us,

" A burst water main has affected drinking water supplies to customers in Abercarn, Crosskeys, Ynysddu and surrounding areas. We are currently carrying out emergency repair work and anticipate that water supplies should begin returning to normal by later this evening."


We therefore updated the school website and sent out text messages to parents. We also contacted some parents by phone.  We would like to thank you all very much for co-operating with us and collecting your children early.


We are assured by Welsh Water that the problem will be resolved by tomorrow. We will update this website via the home page should there be any further disruption.
