Ysgol Maesydderwen WW1 Evening

It was a pleasure to host Ysgol Maesydderwen's timely presentation of 'In their own words' on Thursday 12th November. This tied in with Remembrance Day as well as the current Centenary commemorations of World War One. The school received a grant from the Welsh Government's FWW Commemorative Grant Scheme which has funded research, time and the presentation itself.
The school's history club wore authentic WW1 uniforms to present their research into local involvement in the war through newspapers and letters. In addition, the pupils presented using accompanying visuals. The evening was very moving and a real insight into the lives of ordinary local men serving in the trenches.
Many thanks to the pupils, parents and teachers of Ysgol Maesydderwen for sharing this special performance with us.
