Erasmus Project contingent set to continue fine work on Spanish trip

A group of Rydal Penrhos pupils are heading to the continent this week to continue their work on a special project.

As part of the school’s work with the Erasmus scheme, the contingent will make the trip to Madrid, Spain on Wednesday, November 7 to progress their investigation surrounding their topic of the Cold War.

Edward Patrick, Ioan Peake Jones, Tomos Cole-King, Harry Hackman and Luke Davies will form the Rydal Penrhos group that will travel to Spain, where they will be starting the second year of the project, which is producing teaching materials for teachers teaching about The Cold War. 

The focus in year is to provide teaching via games, interviewing people to add first-hand accounts and telling the story of History via objects and artefacts. 

They are producing work on a variety of different topics surrounding the war, including what life was like in the countries affected and how religion enforced change during the peace process.

In particular, the group are exploring the impact of Communism during the era and examining how it is still evident in today’s society.

This is the latest visit as part of the long-running initiative, with their Spanish, Slovakian and German counterparts visiting the school earlier this year.

They will return from their trip on Tuesday, November 13.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “We are very proud of the work of our fantastic Erasmus group, who have integrated superbly with their European counterparts to produce some incredible final outcomes to date.

“This is a fantastic initiative to be involved in and I know that each pupil involved has got a tremendous amount out of the experience.”
