Heolddu Comprehensive School. - a Memory of Bargoed.

I attended Heolddu Comprehensive school from September 1980 to May 1985. For the first two years I was going to the one that was in Park Cresent, formally known as Bargoed grammar school.
Mr Keri Edwards was the head master then, very old school and strict and he was like a left over from the grammar school days as he still wore the black gown at assembly's.

My teachers were, Mrs Gardener, Mrs Linda Pine, Mrs Pat Harris, Mr Richie Davies, Miss Beverley Kitson. Our music Teacher was Mr Brian Russell. Mr Stuart Lane for P-E. Mr Dave Howells for woodwork, Mr Emlyn Parry for metal work. Mrs Parry Jones for art as well as Mr Jones, and Mr Hughes. I left Heolddu lower school July 1982 to start the top school in the September of that year. At some point Mr Don Harris was teaching us. and Mr Lyndsey Harris or Mr Roger Richardson would take us for P E. They were good days with happy memories even though there was the occasional bully, one of which I quite happily sorted out no problem.
