There was also a representative from Action for Children in attendance to collect their half of the donations that were collected from Rydal Penrhos’ Food Drive, which collected much needed food for the charity and the Conwy Food Bank.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “It has been a very busy half term for our pupils, who have once again shown exceptional application to their academic and co-curricular studies.

“They have all achieved an enormous amount thanks to the guidance from our dedicated and passionate staff, and I would like to thank them all for their wonderful efforts.”
