Eric Powell

…de la South Wales Echo:

Eric Powell is proof that you are never too old to learn.

At the age of 90, the retired Llanedeyrn Junior School headteacher has gone back to the classroom and is currently in his fourth year of a Welsh language course.

Inspired to learn his country’s mother tongue, Eric has been studying the Open College Network course at the Howardian Education Centre, Cardiff, where he recently celebrated his milestone birthday with class mates.

“I’ve been learning Welsh for four years,” said Eric, a father of two and grandfather of one from Rhiwbina, Cardiff.

“I wanted to learn because I felt I would like to endorse my identity as a Welshman"...
