India group praised for Charity Day efforts

All things India were celebrated at a recent fundraising day at Rydal Penrhos.

The school held a special India themed charity day on Friday, April 20, and all funds raised will go to support the donations given by the organising company - Global Action - to the charities that the group is supporting on their landmark visit.

Staff and pupils came dressed in orange, white or green in accordance with the Indian flag, while others came in their own clothes for a small donation.

A large crowd gathered at the Memorial Quad at break for the Cake Sale, which had plenty of tasty treats on offer for everyone to enjoy.

Rydal Penrhos’ new catering providers Holroyd Howe held an Indian lunch as part of their contribution to the festivities, and there was also an inter-house Kabaddi competition held in the Sports Hall.

Those for a taste for art were given the chance to have a Henna Hand Painting drawn by Sixth Form pupils and teacher Suzy Morris, which also raised a considerable amount for the cause.

The group will be based in the foothills of the Himalayas and will take in landmark sites including Amritsar’s Golden Temple and the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

They will also be working closely with community projects with Global Action and even hope to attend an audience with his Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Our India group did a wonderful job or organising such a fantastic day, and hopefully they managed to raise a considerable amount ahead of what is sure to be a trip that will live long in the memory.”
