Preparatory School pupils got to explore nature as part of a special half term holiday club activity.
Rydal Penrhos’ Play Scheme group travelled to the RSPB Conwy Trail on Thursday, October 26, where they took part in a variety of activities during their visit.
In preparation for the trip, the eager pupils created their very own homemade binoculars that were used to help locate the wide variety of birds that frequent the area.
There was also the opportunity to get up close and personal with the wild ponies situated on site, while the group also discovered a number of interesting facts at the Visitors Centre.
Thanks to the generosity of another visitor, a few lucky pupils also got to use a telescope to spot the Great White Egret, which first began nesting throughout the UK in 2012 and was considered to be a very rare sighting at the venue.
Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “We are extremely fortunate to be located in a stunning part of the world, and we strive to ensure that this is utilised for to enhance the learning of each pupil at Rydal Penrhos.
“The RSPB Conwy trail is a fantastic way to learn more about the wildlife that live amongst us, and full credit goes to our Play Scheme group and the staff involved for getting the very most out of this experience.”
