A Rydal Penrhos staff member is heading to the United States for a special educational trip.
Alumni and Development director Sarah Ritchie will be visiting a host of schools across the New York and New Jersey area as part of the US Study Tour next week, which is being run by Institute of Development Professionals in Education and Graham Pelton Fundraising consultants.
She said: “American schools are incredible at alumni and parent engagement and fundraising, and I’m looking forward to working with them, sharing ideas, and coming back motivated and inspired as we move forward with our own development activities.
“This is the first time that the IDPE have organised a US Study Tour, and I’m delighted to be involved.”
A total of seven schools will be visited throughout the trip, and information from the tour will be shared with other schools at the IDPE Conference, which is taking place from June 12-13.
In addition to the visits, Mrs Ritchie will also be visiting former pupils based in the area, and there will also be a special Alumni Dinner held at the New York Athletic Club, Manhattan on Friday, April 28.
