Rydal Penrhos pupils take part in special community action day
14th July 2016

Selfless pupils at Rydal Penrhos took part in a Community Action Day as part of an ongoing school initiative.

As part of the school’s Activity Week, pupils from across all age groups went out to help in the local area on a variety of projects, which included litter picking around the town ahead of the upcoming Colwyn in Bloom inspection.

Pupils and staff also braved the rain to clean up a nearby church graveyard, and their efforts have been praised by acting head of Rydal Penrhos, Roger McDuff.

He said: “Despite the awful weather in was another extremely successful Community Action Day, and I would like to thank all pupils and staff for their efforts.

“We are very proud of our association with the Colwyn Bay and North Wales community, and events like this allow us to give something back, and in relation to the graveyard, members of the public using the area can see the benefit of the clean-up.

“Activity Week is a great way for a pupils to end what has been another successful academic year, and it is an initiative that I hope will continue long into the future.”

During the week-long event pupils took part in a camping trip, while also visiting sites such as Caernarfon Castle and the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
