Radyr and Morganstown Community Council has presented a collection of books about World War One to the schools attended by Radyr and Morganstown schoolchildren, to mark the centenary of the end of the war. Pictured receiving their books are John Hayes, headmaster at Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Plasmawr, along with the school’s head of history, Mrs Anna Foster Evans, and Jayden, one of the pupils who will benefit from having access to the books.
‘We were delighted to receive these amazing books’ said John Hayes ‘They will make a very valuable addition to the school’s library – and we are very grateful to Radyr and Morganstown Community Council for providing us with this kind gift’. ‘It is very important for our young people to learn about the first world war – and its impact on our communities and life across Wales’ added Mrs Evans, ‘These books will help us ensure that this terrible episode in our history is bought vividly to life in our history classes’.
Commenting on the gift, the council’s vice chair, Dr Huw Onllwyn Jones, said ‘We thought it was important to include our schools in the council’s work to remember this hugely significant part of our history – and we were very pleased to be able to offer these books to help with our childrens’ education’.
