With the Head teacher Mr. T V Shaw is Mr. Tom Jones.
Mr. Jones established the renowned Athletics standard of the school and was the first qualified P.E. teacher appointed to the school. He also promoted the gymnastics ,and from his first team, Peter Thorpe, John O Rees and Ken Chin were selected for the Welsh team which attended the 1949 Lingiad in Sweden. During these years, support for the School Athletic team was tremendous and the school dominated the Carmarthenshire Athletics Championships.
Outstanding athletes of this era were Vivian Griffiths, Neville Jones, A.A.A. Junior 100yds champion, Hugh Longhurst, Welsh 880 yds. champion and Ernest Bibbs, 440 yds. champion.
(Can anyone advise if the above mentioned athletes are in the photo and naturally the names of any of the team, thankyou.)
