Cyfarthfa high school is approaching its centenary in 2013 and the school is looking to celebrate this in a number of ways. In January 2013 the castle school will be 100 years old. As part of the celebrations for this centenary a book about the school will be published. The book will contain chapters on how the school first sited in Cyfarthfa Castle, how the boys’ and girls’ schools were merged, the change from grammar to a comprehensive school, and the move to Cae Mari Dwn. There will be accounts of sporting and artistic achievements, pen portraits of well-known former pupils, and reminiscences by former pupils and teachers. There will also be plenty of photographs.
If any former pupil would like to write about his or her time at the school, whether at the Castle or Cae Mari Dwn, please put pen to paper or fingers to word processor. There is no guarantee that every contribution will be printed but we are anxious to have as wide a selection of memories as possible.
Contributions should be sent to:-Joe England (The Editor),
Care of Cyfarthfa High School,
Cae Mari Dwn
Or to Alan Pritchard, the head teacher, at the same address.
