School Logs - The Past, The Present, The Future

In 2010, a team led by Anette Edwards, began transcribing the old school books from Ysgol Penygelli. We hope you enjoy reading through the results of their work. The books are not copied in full, some parts have been edited to make them more readable, but all names have been left in. They paint an interesting picture of education at the time and we hope you enjoy the results.
