Mynyddygarreg primary is one of a string of village and town schools under threat
The parents who send their children to primary school in the Carmarthenshire village of Mynyddygarreg have a very challenging job. They are home schooling, keeping their families safe, juggling work commitments – and at the same time fighting against the proposed closure of the cherished village school.
“I feel I’m living a nightmare,” said Cara Young, a parent governor and the mother of two children, Dewi, seven, and Millie, four. “I’m helping teach the children, working full time and trying to work through the closure consultation document. It’s really unfair that this is hanging over us while the pandemic is happening.”
