A* for Casllwchwr School!!

Pupils and staff at Casllwchwr Primary School, Swansea are fundraising to help disadvantaged children attending a makeshift school in Delhi, India after seeing their touching story reported on Sky News.

Some 80 children attend the Delhi school, set up under a transport bridge in the nation's capital, run by Rajesh Kumar, a local shopkeeper turned school teacher. Foam matting covering rubble substitutes for a desk and a bridge wall for a blackboard, while trains rattle overhead.

Simon Pridham, Executive Head Teacher at Casllwchwr, put out an appeal on Twitter for help with fundraising and has had a huge response from across Wales. Gathering the basics we all take for granted, exercise books, pens and pencils, school bags and clothes is underway and plans are being made to send a small team to Delhi to lend support and expertise to the eager pupils and they're teacher.

Well done to Casllwchwr pupils and staff!!!
