St. Ilityd's, Cardiff

— May I say how shocked and dismayed was to read such an article in your paper as that writen about the new St. 1111yd's College, Cardiff. I am the chairman of the old Illtydrlan Association, a governor of the College, a city councillor, memher of the Cardiff education committee. and I was deputy chairman of the eile's secondary schools committee when the main negotialiims oser the school took place.

I should like to place on

record my appreciation and that of all Cardiff Catholics for the co-operation of the Cardiff Education Committee, who not only assisted us in finding a suitable site but who consistently tried to goad the Minister of Education into action,

Whitst we are also grateful

to the local M.P.s for their support, most or the negotiation with Ministry officials was conducted by the Headmaster and the governors.

I also deny that "hundreds"

of children have been denied udmission to the school. Indeed, only this year the education committee agreed to a four-form entry in tide us over and admit cite+ district pupils.

S. W. Doxsey 9 Ryder Street, Cardiff.
