AT our recent production of Arthur Miller's play, A View From The Bridge, we had students attend from a number of schools across the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff, as the play was on the GCSE curriculum.

Youngsters nowadays do not always receive a good press, so I feel compelled to let other people know how very well behaved these pupils were, how very pleasant and polite when spoken to, and extremely receptive of our performance.

Yes, the head teachers of Corpus Christi High School, Cardiff; St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School, Barry; Ysgol Plas Mawr, Cardiff; Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen, Bridgend; Maesteg Comprehensive School; Radyr Comprehensive School, Cardiff; and Ysgol Gyfun Bro Morgannwg, Barry, can be proud of their students' behaviour in a public place.
