Rhydfelen RIP

Pontypridd has lost one Welsh language school and gained another.

Rhydfelen Comprehensive has long campaigned for a new building - it never sought a new name.

This year it got both. A controversial Private Funding Initiative paid for the new school, which had the name 'Gartholwg' imposed on it by the local council.

And now all that's left of Rhydfelen, the first Welsh language comprehensive in South Wales when it opened in 1962, is this (see left).

A humiliating end for one of Wales's proudest institutions.
