FRIENDS OF SARON SUPPORTS TROEDYRHIW COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL

In view of our ongoing commitment to promoting interest in our local heritage  Friends of Saron were delighted to have been asked to help the Primary School by providing information and resources to be used in a local history display.

This year the school are celebrating the centenary of the Archer Street building which, although now occupied by the Junior Department,  was built in 1914 as a showpiece Girl’s School and later became a County Secondary School.

The young people worked long and hard under the supervision of Mrs Davies and other staff to produce a display which reflects various aspects of school and village life over the past 100 years.

The finished product is a credit to all who were involved including parents, grandparents, other family members and teachers but, most particularly, the young people themselves.

If you have the opportunity to see this work, which will remain in place for some time longer, it will be well worth the effort.

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
