Rededication of War Memorial plaques

At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month 2003, the Rolls of Honour of former students who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars were rededicated in a ceremony held at Porth County Community School.

The plaques had been removed from the Main Hall of the Grawen Street building before demolition took place. They were placed in the entrance foyer of the Community School, where the former Porth County memorial plaques and obelisk are located.

The ceremony was conducted in the presence of around forty relatives of those whose names are honoured.
