Alys and Lily scoop Lower School project prizes

Two hard-working pupils at Rydal Penrhos received recognition for their work during a special project.

Alys Peake-Jones and Lily Davies, Year 8 and 7 pupils at the school, were the worthy recipients of the prize for best project from the annual Lower School project, which was judged by Headmaster Simon Smith.

The group were set the task of either creating something associated with Rydal Penrhos or on the theme of “The Sea”, and after a great deal of hard work, their respective projects were submitted to Mr Smith on Friday, May 18.

During the planning process, a number of pupils enlisted the help of various staff members to come up with their designs, with projects ranging from a new school uniform to a detailed account of what occurred at the school during the Second World War.

They each spent around 20 hours working hard on the task, which has brought with it a host of spectacular pieces that highlighted the importance of encouraging creativity in a bid to boost learning, which is something that is evident throughout all areas of Rydal Penrhos life.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “This project was another fantastic showcase of the creativity and forward thinking of our Lower School pupils, and congratulations go to Lily and Alys on winning their respective categories.

“This project really captures the imagination of each pupil taking part, and it gets them to explore our rich and fantastic history at the school which is something that will stand them in extremely good stead going forward.”
