Languages Week: Host of pupils lend support to initial activities

There was plenty going on at Rydal Penrhos as the school began its busy schedule in support of a continental initiative.

As part of the annual Languages Week, the school’s Modern Foreign Languages have devised a fun-filled schedule of different events to celebrate Rydal Penrhos’ diverse and wonderful culture.

The festivities began with Richard Wolfendale leading an introduction to Welsh for his Year 11 peers on Monday, before boarding pupils Jonas Lucas-Nuelle and Jule Mayer holding a German Waffle sale which attracted a large crowd during Tuesday break.

This was followed by a French Crêpe making session under the guidance of Head of Food Studies Laura Gardener and son/Sixth Form pupil Joe, which saw them go through the steps to making the tasty treat before those in attendance got the chance to make one for themselves.

Lower Sixth Former Matty Fiorita also contributed with a special Italian taster session for Year 7, and Middle School girls’ enjoyed a French film night at the school’s Edwards Boarding House.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “To see so many of our pupils getting involved with Languages Week is absolutely fantastic to see, and is further evidence of their confidence and leadership abilities.

“Our MFL department does a wonderful job under Susan Livingstone of promoting Rydal Penrhos’ diversity, and this has once again been evident during the initial stages of Languages Week which has really captured the imagination of pupils’ from a variety of different age groups.”
