Aberfan Memorial October 2016
On October 17th special assemblies took place throughout the day to mark the 50-year anniversary of the Aberfan disaster in which 116 children were killed. Jonathan Hill from ITV attended to speak to the pupils. Representatives of the Student Parliament were then invited to help to plant a tree in memory of those who lost their lives, alongside members of our partner primary schools. Each of the schools also planted a shrub around the tree, which can be viewed on the bank in front of the school building.
