Aberdare Boys’ Grammar School
Centenary Dinner 1996
from Colin Evans (1952–1957), Alwyn Griffiths (1954–1961)
Keith Nicholas (1956–1961)
In September 1996, the Past Students Association in conjunction with the school organised
a Centenary Dinner to celebrate the opening of the Intermediate School one hundred
years previously on September 29th, 1896. A large number of past students attended
the function, which was held at The Michael Sobell Sports Centre in Aberdare.
The event benefited from a warm sunny September evening, and for the formal part of the function hundreds of past students sat down to a dinner and were entertained by the Cwmbach Male Voice Choir. Following the meal, toasts and speeches, there was a great deal of networking among groups of past students, during which time many old friendships were renewed and new ones formed. As you would expect, the old boys also took the opportunity to partake in some traditional communal singing themselves.
Displayed below are some mementoes of this occasion; they are from Colin Evans, Alwyn Griffiths and Keith Nicholas. There was also a centenary tankard available, but we have not seen one yet. If you have a photo of the tankard or other group photos, please consider sending them in to us.
