Responding to the sad news about the death of Gareth Pierce, Chair of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, Dr Ioan Matthews, Chief Executive of the Coleg said:

“We are immensely saddened by the news of the sudden death of the Chair of the Coleg’s Board, Gareth Pierce. On behalf of the Coleg’s staff and Board members I would like to send our deepest condolences to Gareth’s wife, Lynwen, and his two sons, Gwyn and Siôn, in their loss.

“Gareth made a huge contribution to the Coleg, especially over the last eighteen months and it was an honour to have known him. He was a true gentleman and we will miss his wisdom, guidance and leadership.”

There will be an opportunity in due course to come together to remember and celebrate Gareth’s contribution to the field of education in Wales and in the meantime we will also share a longer and more comprehensive tribute with you.
