Nice to see so many people turn out for the march
Shame the governed were in a huddle away from the main group of protesters whilst waiting to start the march

Well done all what a fantastic turnout!!! We will not go without a fight and now they know it. They can spout as much as they like about how they only have the health and safety of our children in mind but we know their true agenda and they won't get away with it. Leave our school alone and let our children continue with their excellent education.

Where are our local councillors when we need them? Rhiannon Passmore speaks for her ward in Risca when she supports Caerphilly's decision to close this school - after all, her own Risca Community School would likely gain if it closes. Caerphilly County Borough Council repeatedly ignore the needs and best interests of the old Islwyn Borough Council area. We are a community, we are tax payers and we deserve better than this! Denver Preece, Ken James, where are you now??

Well done everyone who took part in the march, it was a very uplifting and emotional experience with so many of us there with a common purpose. The Organisers did a fantastic job, Thank you.
CCBC, WAKE UP, TAKE NOTE!!
The Community have spoken quite clearly. Council, this is your opportunity to right a wrong. An injustice has been done don't continue with this ridiculous saga any longer. Let us return to Cwmcarn.
Finally why are CCBC keeping the identity of the 'independent expert' so secret what are they hiding?
I understand that he is the expert who stated his views on 'Week In Week Out television programme on the 30th October 2012 log on and judge for yourselves

9 How is he independent?and impartial? He was shown quite clearly on the 30th October with a CCBC letter in front of him. CCBC constantly tell us that they wish to be 'open, honest and transparent'. They have failed! How many more dirty tactics CCBC?
KEEP UP THE PRESSURE EVERYONE!!

Rhiannon Passmore needs to answer the question " Why do many parents choose to send their children to Cwmcarn when Risca is their catchment area school ?" I am one of those parents. She doesn't speak for me.
