A group of Lower Sixth Form pupils were honoured for their outstanding commitment to their academic studies with special awards.
The five Year 12 pupils received their respective prizes at Rydal Penrhos’ annual Year 11-13 Speech Day event, which was held at the refurbished Donald Hughes Memorial Hall prior to the half term break.
Head Girl Millie Collins, Raha Aminnejad, Bijou Rajagopal and Brona Richardson all managed to secure Effort, Attainment and Progress prizes thanks to their tremendous efforts during the first year of their A-level modules, as they look to carry on the school’s rich history of examination success in 2020.
Another winner was sports scholar Nia Humphreys, who also scooped an Effort, Attainment and Progress prize in addition to the Food and Nutrition Prize to round off what has been a very promising first year at Rydal Penrhos for the pupil.
Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “All five Lower Sixth pupils have made an exceptional transition to their A-level studies and are thoroughly deserving of their recent accolades.
“We always look for our Sixth Form pupils to lead by example and inspire younger members of the Rydal Penrhos community in a positive fashion, and this is a challenge that Millie, Raha, Bijou, Brona and Nia have taken on considerably well throughout the academic year.”
