Mr Terry Jones, Chair of Governors

Requiescat in pace


It is with the greatest sadness that we must announce that our Chair of Governors, Mr. Terry Jones, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday 10th February.

This news comes as a great shock to all of his Governor colleagues, with whom he met very recently, and to all staff, whom he addressed a fortnight ago following the school’s Estyn inspection. Very many pupils and their parents will have met Mr. Jones at school events including the Awards Evenings, and will be aware of the great commitment and energy he has devoted to his work on the school’s behalf, the contribution that he has made throughout his time on the Governing Body being incalculable.

Similarly, through his voluntary work as Chair of the Penllergare Trust, with Gwyrosydd School and with several choirs, Mr. Jones has ensured that every organisation with which he has been involved has benefited  immeasurably from the time that he has spent with them due to the expertise and dedication that he has brought to his roles.

Mr. Jones will be missed greatly for his warmth, humour, kindness and true generosity of spirit. We pray for his family at this very difficult time, and for Mr. Jones, that he may rest in peace.


With thanks to the Penllergare Trust for their permission to use the photographs in our tribute to Mr. Jones.
