Rydal Penrhos pupils take part in community beach clean-up
25th October 2017

Selfless pupils at Rydal Penrhos took part in a community project shortly before the half term break.

The Year 8 group participated in a special Beach clean-up in Colwyn Bay on Thursday, October 19, which is one of a number of initiatives devised by the school in the hope of improving specific areas of the region.

During the day pupils picked up an enormous amount of litter from the area, which is currently undergoing significant regeneration work which also includes the demolition of the town’s Victoria Pier.

The event follows on from the recent Community Action Day held during the last week of the previous academic year, which saw staff and pupils clean a nearby church graveyard, something which resulted in a complete transformation of graves that had been lift to ruin.

A Woodland area close to Rydal Penrhos was also given a makeover as part of the activity.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “We are extremely proud of our community improvement initiative that has brought huge success over the years

“Rydal Penrhos is fortunate to be located just a stone’s throw away from the beach, and this is something that we utilise to its fullest to enhance learning and also for extra-curricular activities such as out thriving Sailing programme.

“It is therefore vitally important that we help maintain its cleanliness and I would like to thank all our Year 8 pupils that took part in the clean-up.”
