Year 6 display grit to reach Snowdon summit
30th May 2019

A group of Preparatory School pupils demonstrated their head for heights after tackling a prominent landmark.

The Year 6 class at Rydal Penrhos took part in a special walk up Mount Snowdon on Wednesday, May 22, which is part of a series of fun-filled and challenging activities devised for them before they depart.

After a tough day of walking and climbing, they finally reached the highest point in Wales early in the afternoon, where they posed for pictures and took in the picturesque views that come with reaching the summit.

They were joined on the walk by members of Rydal Penrhos’ dedicated staff team, in addition to their parents who kindly gave up their time to lend their support.

Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles south of the Scottish Highlands.

Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “We are fortunate to have some of the most picturesque surrounding in the entire country on our doorstep here at Rydal Penrhos, and we strive to ensure that this extreme benefit it utilised to its utmost.

“Each member of our Year 6 group has been a privilege to have here, and it is fantastic that events like this will give them even more fantastic memories before they start on the Senior School journey.

“I would like to thank our staff for their commitment and to the parents who came along to support their children during the activity.”
