    information - Quindici Choir




    On Saturday July 18th the acclaimed chamber choir Quindici will be performing in Tregynon Community Centre. The concert has the intriguing title of Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo and will feature music based on the animals that Noah took into his ark, or ‘floating zoo’. The popular cantata of the same name will be the second half of the concert. Musical Director Suzanne Edwards explains, “Captain Noah was written in 1970 by Joseph Horovitz and the libretto by Michael Flanders, and is a charming re telling of the Bible story, with lots of humour, catchy tunes and witty words – typical of Michael Flanders’ work. Musically it’s a real departure for Quindici, but I am being very self indulgent in choosing this for our summer concert. It’s a work I have known since childhood, and think the choir and hopefully the audience, will really enjoy it. “


    “I want to encourage as many children to come to the concert as possible, and I thought it would be fun to invite them to dress up as their favourite animal from the ark! I’m sure the choir will enjoy performing to lions and tigers, or even frogs and toads! There will be prizes for the best animal costume, 1 for 5 year olds and under and one for the over 5’s. It should make for a colourful concert!”


    Along with the Noah work, there will be music from different periods in history and some readings by local poets Jane Dards and Pat Edwards. All will have an animal theme. 


    Tickets are priced at £5 for adults and can be reserved by phoning 07970 955718, or will be available at the door. Entry is free for primary school children. The concert will begin at 6.30PM.

    The Education (Penalty Notices) (Wales) Regulations 2013 introduced Fixed Penalty Notices for regular non-attendance at school. 


    The Welsh Government has required all local authorities to draw up and implement their own Local Codes of Conduct to ensure consistency in the issuing of Fixed Penalty Notices. The code will be implemented in Powys from 27th February 2015.


    The Welsh Government states that Fixed Penalty Notices are one option among a number of different interventions available to promote better school attendance. The introduction of these regulations is one part of the Welsh Government strategy to support improved school attendance across Wales.


    The introduction of these regulations mean that parents may now be financially penalised for their child(ren)’s regular non-attendance at school.


    The local code of conduct, which explains how penalty notices will operate, is available on the Powys County Council website

    Mae Rheoliadau Addysg (Hysbysiadau Cosb) (Cymru) 2013 wedi cyflwyno hysbysiadau cosb benodedig am fethu bod yn bresennol yn gyson yn yr ysgol.

    Mae Llywodraethu Cymru’n mynnu bod awdurdodau lleol yn llunio ac yn defnyddio’u Codau Ymddygiad Lleol eu hunain er mwyn bod yn gyson wrth gyflwyno hysbysiadau cosb.  Bydd y cod yn dod i rym ym Mhowys o 27 Chwefror 2015.

    Yn ôl Llywodraeth Cymru, un opsiwn yw  hysbysiadau cosb o blith nifer o wahanol opsiynau  i wella lefelau presenoldeb mewn ysgolion.  Un rhan o strategaeth Llywodraeth Cymru yw’r rheoliadau hyn i wella lefelau presenoldeb mewn ysgolion ar draws Cymru.

    Gyda’r rheoliadau hyn, mae’n bosibl y bydd rhieni’n cael dirwy os yw eu plant yn methu’r ysgol yn gyson.

    Mae’r cod ymddygiad lleol, sy’n esbonio sut bydd yr hysbysiadau cosb yn gweithio, i’w weld ar wefan Cyngor Sir Powys.

    A child should not be accepted at the beginning of a school session if it is obvious that he/she isn’t well and if a child develops symptoms of any infectious illness during a session.  Reasonable steps should be taken to avoid cross-infection.  In order to operate a responsible policy towards preventing the spread of infection, it is recommended that the following guidelines regarding exclusion periods are followed.

    Note that the LEA don’t recommend exclusion for pupils who are infested with headlice.  However, it is school policy to take reasonable steps to avoid cross-infection.  Therefore, when headlice are detected parents should be contacted and pupils sent home for treatment.  They should only return when there is no evidence of live lice on the child.

    Please find below guidance on exclusion periods for communicable diseases.

    Eye Infections

    Please do not send your child to school until the infection has cleared.

    Sickness and Diarrhoea

    Your child must not attend school for 48 hours after the last bout of sickness or diarrhoea.

    Chicken Pox

    Your child must not attend school 6 days from the appearance of the rash or until spots have scabbed over.

    German Measles (Rubella)

    Your child must not attend school for 4 days from the appearance of the rash.


    Your child must not attend the school for 7 days from the appearance of the rash.


    Your child must not attend the school for 10 days or until the swelling has gone down.

    Whooping Cough

    Yourchild must not attend school until both the cough and whooping have ceased for 14 days.

    Skin Infection eg. Impetigo

    Medical advice needs to be sought and treatment given.  Where practical, the infection needs to be covered to avoid infection through contact.

    Slapped Cheek (Fifth) Disease

    • This is a viral illness that usually affects children, but can also affect adults.
    • Symptoms include fever, rash (the cheeks often have a bright red “slapped cheek” (appearance) and sometimes joint pains.
    • Transmission is from person to person by respiratory droplets.
    • The incubation period is usually between 13-18 days.
    • The infectious period is from 7 days before the onset of the rash.  Once the rash appears, a person is  no longer infectious.
    • Children who are immunocompromised or have certain types of anaemias can have more severe symptoms.
    • Occasionally Parvovirus can affect an unborn baby.  If a woman is exposed early in pregnancy (before 20 weeks) she should inform her GP and whoever is providing her antenatal care.
