Year 7 deliver special Memory Books to Merton Place residents
22nd March 2018

Caring pupils at Rydal Penrhos produced a special item for elderly people at a Colwyn Bay residential home.

The Year 7 class took the short trip to Merton Place on Wednesday, March 21, where they concluded presented their Memory Books to each resident involved.

The group spent time with various residents to learn more about their lives, while also finding out some interesting facts about their past and their most cherished memories.

They were then tasked with producing the books based on their findings, and during their final visit they spent some time discussing each page of the books with those involved.

This is part of a series of community involvement initiatives run by Rydal Penrhos’ dedicated staff, which has seen the school take part in a number of different projects throughout the region with a view to improving the area.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, who led the project, said: “It was an honour to deliver the Memory Books to the residents of Merton Place, and I would like to thank them for giving up their time to speak with our Year 7 about their fascinating lives.

“This is something we have run for a number of years and the group get an enormous amount out of it, and developing this strong connection with the community is something that will stand them in extremely good stead in the months and years to come.”
