6th Form students learning about the Apartheid Regime

In honour of Black History Month, our Upper Sixth students studying Welsh A Level have been reading one of the short stories on the WJEC specification, ‘Angladd yn y Wlad’ (Funeral in the Country).
The short story, written by Ioan Kidd, tells the story of a black family affected by the tragedies of the Apartheid regime in South Africa during the latter part of the 20th century. The story emphasises the segregation and inequality faced at the time, along with the significant contrasts between the poorer black community living in the shanty towns, and the richer white community living in plantation homes and palaces.
Our students have enjoyed learning about the history and comparing it with the Civil Rights Movement in the USA. They then went on to compare the literature with other Welsh and English literature.
