Everyone at Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern would like to extend their heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Elgan Wyn Jones. Elgan was a hugely popular pupil amongst staff and school children. His passing is a tremendous loss to our school community.

Huge congratulations to the girls on their achievement!
Er mwyn rhoi amser i ysgolion asesu eu capasiti staffio a rhoi'r mesurau angenrheidiol ar waith i gefnogi dychweliad dysgwyr, mae Llywodraeth Cymru wedi penderfynu rhoi dau ddiwrnod cynllunio i bob ysgol ar ddechrau'r tymor nesaf (6 a 7 Ionawr 2022). Ni fydd ysgolion yn darparu unrhyw ddysgu ar-lein/cyfunol yn ystod y dyddiau hyn. Mae disgwyl i bob dysgwr ym Môn ddychwelyd i'r ysgol ddydd Llun 10 Ionawr. Bydd taliadau electronig yn parhau i'r teuluoedd hynny sydd â hawl i ddarpariaeth prydau ysgol am ddim i'w plant.
Yn dibynnu ar sefyllfa Covid, mae'n bosibl y gwelwn newidiadau yn y ffordd y mae ysgolion yn gweithredu pan fyddant yn dychwelyd ym mis Ionawr. Byddwn yn parhau i asesu'r sefyllfa mewn cydweithrediad â Llywodraeth Cymru, Iechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru a phenaethiaid. Bydd ysgolion yn rhannu unrhyw ddiweddariadau perthnasol gyda chi fel y bo'n briodol.
Mae hon yn sefyllfa sy'n esblygu'n gyflym ac rydym yn eich annog i gymryd gofal ychwanegol i gadw eich hunain a'r rhai o'ch cwmpas mor ddiogel â phosibl.
Hoffwn ddiolch am eich amynedd ac eich cydweithrediad parhaus. Dymuniadau gorau i chi a’ch teulu dros y Nadolig.
Gwasanaeth Dysgu Ynys Môn
In order to provide schools with time to assess staffing capacity and put the necessary measures in place to support the return of learners, the Welsh Government has decided to provide all schools with two planning days at the beginning of next term (6 and 7 January 2022). Schools will not be providing any online/blended learning during these days. All learners on Anglesey are expected to return to school on Monday 10 January. Electronic payments will continue for those families are entitled to free school meal provision for their children.
Depending on the Covid situation, it is possible that we will see changes in how schools operate when they return in January. We will continue to assess the situation in collaboration with Welsh Government, Public Health Wales and headteachers. Schools will share any relevant updates with you as appropriate.
This is a fast evolving situation and we urge you to take extra care to keep yourselves and those around you as safe as possible.
We would like to thank you for your patience and continued support. Best wishes to you and your family over Christmas.

Thank you for your support.
As part of the Enterprise Challenge with the Welsh Bac - 2 groups have chosen the Welsh Blood Service brief, and even though they do not have to actually complete the Challenge, a group of pupils: Cerys, Megan, Alys, Catrin, Magi and Mia have chosen to complete it and help the WBS encourage the local community to give blood.
A member of the WBS came into school last week to increase awareness of the service with our Year 13 pupils and presented information on blood, bone marrow and platelets in young people between 17 an 31.
One donation of blood can save the lives of 3 people or 6 babies.
Have you ever donated blood before?Welsh Blood Service is calling on the residents of the Holyhead area to start saving lives.
The next clinic will be at Holyhead Hotspur FC on December 29 and 30.

Ymchwilio i ymosodiad seiber ar Ysgolion Uwchradd
Mae Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn yn ymchwilio i ymosodiad seiber sydd wedi effeithio ar bob un o’i pum ysgol uwchradd.
Mae systemau technoleg gwybodaeth - yn cynnwys cyfrifon e-bost - wedi eu hatal dros dro er mwyn gallu rheoli’r digwyddiad sydd wedi effeithio ar Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones, Amlwch; Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern; Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni; Ysgol David Hughes, Porthaethwy, ac Ysgol Uwchradd Caergybi.
Fodd bynnag, mae’n bosib bod data personol sy’n cael ei chadw ar y systemau hyn wedi ei chyfaddawdu yn ystod yr ymosodiad seiber.
Eglurodd Annwen Morgan, Prif Weithredwr Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn, “Fe wnaethom ddarganfod yr ymosodiad seiber ddoe (Dydd Mercher, Mehefin 23) ac yna symud yn gyflym i ddod â thîm o ymgynghorwyr technoleg seiber arbenigol i mewn er mwyn ymchwilio i’r mater. Bydd y Ganolfan Diogelwch Seiber Genedlaethol hefyd yn ein cefnogi er mwyn gallu datrys y mater.”
“Mae’n debyg y bydd ychydig o aflonyddwch i’r ysgolion dros yr wythnosau nesaf gan efallai y bydd angen i rai systemau gael eu hadfer ac y bydd eraill yn parhau i fod oddi ar lein am gyfnod.”
Ychwanegodd, “Rydym yn cydweithio’n agos â phartneriaid eraill er mwyn cefnogi ein hysgolion uwchradd. Er na allwn gadarnhau ar hyn o bryd a oes mynediad diawdurdod at ddata wedi digwydd, mae Swyddfa’r Comisiynydd Gwybodaeth wedi eu hysbysu am y digwyddiad.”
Ni fydd Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn yn gwneud unrhyw sylwadau pellach ar hyn o bryd.

Secondary schools’ cyber-attack investigated
The Isle of Anglesey County Council is investigating a cyber-attack, which has affected all of its five secondary schools.
Information technology systems - including email accounts - have been temporarily disabled to contain the incident, which has affected Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones, Amlwch; Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern; Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni; Ysgol David Hughes, Menai Bridge, and Ysgol Uwchradd Caergybi.
However, it is possible that personal data held on these systems could have been compromised during the cyber-attack.
Anglesey Council’s Chief Executive, Annwen Morgan, explained, “We discovered the cyber-attack yesterday (Wednesday, June 23rd) and moved quickly to bring in a team of specialised cyber-technology consultants to investigate. The National Cyber Security Centre will also be providing us with support to resolve matters.”
“There is likely to be some disruption at the schools over the coming weeks as systems may need to be restored and others remain offline.”
She added, “We are working closely with other partners to support our secondary schools. Although we are not currently able to confirm that there has been a data breach, the Information Commissioner’s Office has also been made aware of the incident.”
Anglesey Council will not be making any further comment at present.

Mia from year 11 has been invited to be a part of the Wales under 17 football squad next year. She has worked extremely hard over the years and we’re very proud of her. However, she has some difficult decisions to make as they’d like her to move down to South Wales to attend Coleg y Cymoedd in September. Decisions, decisions!
Due to the rise of COVID-19 cases within Anglesey communities, and following discussions and agreement between the Local Authority and Anglesey Head teachers, it has been decided that pupils will not return to school for face-to-face learning until at least 18/01/2021.
All lessons will continue online.
We aim to welcome all pupils back to school from the 18th onwards - however, this will be confirmed following an assessment of the situation nearer to the time.
We will invite all pupils back into the school buildings when conditions allow.
In the meantime, care will be available for vulnerable children and children of key workers at the individual schools.
Following discussions and agreement with the Local Authority is has been decided that due to the current circumstances, pupils in Years 11-13 will not be returning to school on Wednesday the 6th of January 2021. All lessons will continue online as on previous occasions. We aim to welcome everyone back to school on Monday 11th January but this will be reviewed following an assessment of the situation middle of next week.
