History of Pontnewydd Primary School.
The school dates back to 1955, when Pontnewydd Junior Mixed School was opened as the first school to serve the still being built Cwmbran New Town. It was planned as an integral part of the neighbourhood, and still contributes to the cultural and recreational life of the area by providing a base for the local community.
The old Infant School moved into its present building in 1967, and the Junior and Infant Schools were amalgamated in 1983 to become Pontnewydd Primary School.
Today, the school is a large primary school with a nursery attached.
Always move around the school safely and quietly
Always respect yourself and each other
Always respect things that belong to you and to others
Always respect and care for the school environment
Always listen and follow instructions
Always try your best in whatever you do
This is our school
Let peace dwell here
Let the room be full of contentment
Let love abide here
Love of one another
Love of mankind
Love of life itself
And love of God.
Let us remember
that as many hands build a house
so many hearts make a school.
