A glimpse inside Room 8 at the Trecynon School

Room 8 scene
A rare glimpse inside a classroom, thought to be circa 1960.
The two boys at the back of the class are Barrie Payne, reading a book, and possibly Roger Key - apparently asleep.
We think that the photo might have been taken during a lunchtime break, when Mr Tom Evans allowed trusted boys to remain in his Geography room, Room 8. Desks and decor looking rather shabby?
