Chinese visitors perform ancient Greek myth as part of integration programme

A group of Chinese visitors to Rydal Penrhos performed an ancient Greek myth as part of their stay.

The young pupils took part in a series of rehearsals leading up to the show, which they performed in-front of a large crowd in the Carnegie Room on Friday, February 10.

The Story of Demeter and Persephone went down a storm with the audience, which was comprised of Year 9 pupils, staff members and Director of Music Pete Williams.

The fantastic performance came on the final day of their week-long stay at the school, where the group took part in a number of lessons at the school including English, Music and Drama, while also taking part in unfamiliar sports such as Sailing.

They also has the chance to sample some of the nearby tourist attractions including Snowdonia, Chester and the picturesque Conwy Castle.

Director of Communications Susan Hogan, said: “Their visit was part of a specialised integration programme we run for foreign pupils here at Rydal Penrhos, which gives them a taste of what being educated in the UK is all about.

“We have had a number of Chinese groups at the school over a number of weeks, and they have all applied themselves extremely well.

“We have loved having them here at Rydal Penrhos, and hope they will take back some very fond memories with them from their stay with us.”
