My School Days At Pontygof Commenced 1950 - a Memory of Pontygof.
Hey, it was the beginning of my learning on the journey of life, my gorgeous mum Rosie took me to Pontygof Infants in 1950, I remember looking over the wall as she walked away crying, I will never forget that, my dear mum. 7, Colliers Row boy born and bred. I remember Joe Richards, headmaster in Pontygof Primary, mixed feeling about him, he was a genius with the cane but hey it hurt at times but done no harm. Mr Jones, maths teacher, he called me the wizard because I was quite good at maths, but hey at the time poverty curtailed my learning, but hey I ain't done too bad in life... Robert Wilson from family of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls, great upbringing even though POOR. love Rob
