School Days - a Memory of Tonyrefail.

I passed for Tonyrefail Grammar school in 1953, what excitement. It was so strange changing rooms for every lesson, hockey, tennis, Urdd, teachers wearing cap and gowns. The headmaster was T.Bowen Jones and was called Boss. The school was so big with pupils from places like Beddau and Ynysmaerdy. Coming from Gilfach Goch I had never heard of these places.
It was a good school and I enjoyed my time there.
