A hard-working Preparatory School pupil has achieved a notable qualification.
Archie Jeeves, a Year 3 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, added to his list of accolades by obtaining his RLSS Bronze Stage Two Rookie Lifeguard qualification, after successfully completing the course and a series of tasks associated with what he has learned.
This comes on the back of the eight-year-old’s Bronze Stage One award, which he achieved in fine style earlier on this year.
There are a limited number of places remaining on Rydal Penrhos’ RLSS Rookie Lifeguard Course from September, with the programme giving children the skills they need to be confident in the pool or the sea.
With colourful materials and fun, varied activities, the Rookie Lifeguard scheme teaches children how to swim and enjoy water safely, whether in shallow or deeper water.
Built into the programme are lessons in valuable survival, rescue and sports skills, all delivered in an exciting way that will get children involved and motivated. The course can run parallel their current swimming lessons and will enhance the skills they learn in the pool.
Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “This is a fantastic effort from Archie, who has shown a great deal of dedication to get both stages in a relatively short space of time.
“Courses such as these are a great way for our pupils to gain survival skills in the water, while also picking up some techniques that could save lives one day.”
