European schools visit to continue Erasmus project work

A number of European schools are currently residing at Rydal Penrhos as part of a continental initiative.

As part of the school’s work with the Erasmus project, visiting education establishments from Madrid in Spain, Bonn in Germany and Nitra, Slovakia arrived on Friday, June 29 to continue their work surrounding the Cold War.

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.

It is also explored the impact of Communism during the era and examining how it is still evident in today’s society.

As part of their research for the project, the group recently visited the Imperial War Museum in Manchester and a similar venue in Llandudno.

Their findings, together with quizzes and other games, are currently being formed and will be published later this year and used at schools across the continent.

Harry Hackman, Juan Rajagopal, Head Boy Nick Fiorita, Will Crumb, Barooj Maqsood, Finola Johnson and Alexia Radu fort the Rydal Penrhos team working with their European counterparts, and each member of the team is being supported by Head of Careers Mike Farnell throughout the process.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “We are proud to be part of the Erasmus project and it is great to see our European partners enjoying and getting the very most out of their stay here at Rydal Penrhos.

“They have received a warm welcome from staff and pupils alike, and they have worked incredibly well as a cohesive unit so far for what is sure to be a fantastic final submission.”
