Artists get creative using recycled materials as part of Green Week

A group of creative pupils at Rydal Penrhos took part in a special event during a week-long initiative.

As part of the school’s Green Week, a special Art competition was held on Tuesday, January 30, where pupils produced pieces using only recycled materials.

A number of interesting creations were made at the department under the watchful eye of Head of Art Mark Sherrington, and this is the latest in a long line of activities organised by Rydal Penrhos’ Eco Committee.

Meat Free Monday kicked off the awareness week, where pupils and staff were invited to go throughout the day without eating any meat products.

Wednesday will see Blue Planet screened during enrichment, which is a critically acclaimed series narrated by the voice of Sir David Attenborough that led to government legislation looking to tackle the issue of plastic in the ocean following disturbing images of wildlife tangled up in products.

The week will close out with a cake sale on Friday, while the Rydal Penrhos community can also come to school wearing green for a small donation.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “The plight of the environment is something we take very seriously at Rydal Penrhos, as is demonstrated by events such as this and the work we do throughout the academic year throughout the region.”
