Community Action Day hailed a success
23rd July 2018

Selfless staff and pupils at Rydal Penrhos took part in a Community Action Day as part of an ongoing 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 throughout the region prior to the summer break on Thursday, July 5.

Pupils and staff also spent a significant amount of cleaning up a nearby church graveyard on Llanelian Road in Colwyn Bay, something which resulted in a complete transformation of graves that had been lift to ruin.

Another group also spent some time improving the cleanliness of the grounds at Gwrych Castle, a Grade I Listed site that is currently being restored by a trust led by former Rydal Penrhos pupil and Conwu County Councillor Dr Mark Baker.

Rounding off the initiative were a group of Year 7 pupils, who spent time working at the Bryn Euryn nature reserve situated at nearby Rhos on Sea.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “We are immensely proud of our overall contribution our local area here at Rydal Penrhos, and this year’s Community Action Day once again demonstrated the selfless nature of our wonderful pupils and staff.

“Rydal Penrhos is very fortunate to be situated in a stunning part of the world, and we will continue to help in any way we can to worthy projects, causes and charities throughout the region in keeping with our 5Ls philosophy implemented by Headmaster Simon Smith.”
