Rhondda Remembers Mobile App!

Tonypandy Community College is honouring those who made the ultimate sacrifice during World War One as they’ve launched an app called Rhondda Remembers.

With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, the two-year project has culminated in the official launch of the App by Kirsty Williams, the Cabinet Secretary for Education at the Welsh Government.

Students produced an “app” for both iPads and Android tablets to collate resources, historical documents and investigations into the gallant heroes of the Mid Rhondda.

The project has also seen them research many aspects of the Great War, including the war memorials, stories of the fallen heroes and the effect on industry, entertainment, health, food supply and the role of women.
