Knighthoods and Other Honours to Pontardawe Grammar School

The school has produced three knighthoods, one Dame, and a Squire. So is looking like a mediaeval court. It should never have been closed. Sir Goronowy Daniel (Ystrad Gynlais) received two knighthoods, Dame Sia^n Phillips (Gwaun Cae Gurwen), Sir Gareth Edwards (strictly speaking educated at the Tech next door), (Gwaun Cae Gurwen) and your truly, Squire of the Craig Cefn Parc hill billies. The school is described in “Autobiography Volume One” in the blue box above my coat of arms on the home page of www.aias.us. Gareth Edwards’ coach was Wil Sam, Mr Wil Samuel of Craig Cefn Parc. We are all fluent Welsh speakers. Gareth used to train in the Grammar School gym and on the rugby field behind the gym., and with his brother Gethin was also a very good gymnast.
