School's despair.

SIR - We are currently faced with the proposed closure of our local school Eglwys Wen.

This is not a failing school or where role numbers have dropped.

It is a successful school at the heart of the Whitchurch community.

I believe the schools re-organisation program is more about property development than children's education in Cardiff.

We forget that we are dealing with the most important asset of our city, our children. They are being dealt with in the same way a large company sells off its commodities for profit.

Why doesn't Cardiff Council go the whole hog and close every school in Cardiff and build a hyperschool on top of Caerphilly mountain where no property developers would wish to build.

At least the school would be safe from future closures!

Is there any point in having a three-month consultation period?

It is widely assumed that schools proposed for closure have all ready been earmarked for development.

Yours in complete despair!
