Dozens take part in Prep School Summer Reading Challenge

A large number of Preparatory School pupils hit the books as part of a special scheme this summer.

Staff at Rydal Penrhos implemented a Summer Reading Challenge for pupils across all age groups, which was organised with a view to setting goals and enhancing learning throughout the break.

The initiative has once again been hailed as a roaring success, with dozens of pupils taking part in the scheme, which is designed to improve reading and writing outside of the classroom.

The initial target set by the challenge is to read five books and produce two book reports during the holidays, with many pupils surpassing this target and reading upwards of 25 books as a result of their dedication and commitment to the scheme.

All pupils received recognition in the form of a certificate at Rydal Penrhos’ weekly Celebration Assembly on Friday, September 22.

Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “This scheme is something we have run for a number of years, and once again our pupils showed tremendous dedication to achieve success.

“Improving reading over the holidays is something that we highly recommend as it gives each pupil the right platform to hit the ground running when they return to the classroom, and this challenge something they have really embraced once again.

“Well done to all pupils who took part and I am confident Rydal Penrhos’ summer reading challenge can continue long into the future.”
