As part of a special series of summer features, we turn our attention to our Year 6 pupils as we reflect on their accomplishments and get the perspective of Prep School Head Alison Hind.
The latest instalment of Leavers’ Focus features Cerys Williams:
Cerys has been at the Prep School since Early Years and she has grown and flourished significantly over this time.
She has enjoyed a particularly rich and exciting year both in and out of school, securing a Distinction in her LAMDA Grade One Acting Solo assessment, a distinction in her Grade Two Modern Theatre Dance examination.
With this expertise, it was no wonder that she was selected to perform in the Pantomime, Peter Pan, as A Lost Boy at Venue Cymru over the festive period, and a fine performance she presented.
Her standout effort on stage was also evident during the annual Year play Aladdin and Café Dolphin showcase, and she has also developed academically and throughout her co-curricular activities thanks to her outstanding commitment under the expert support of dedicated staff operating at the Prep School.
Cerys also thrived with the responsibility of being Head Girl, supporting her Year 6 peers in addition to younger members of the school community which has been a huge asset to have throughout the academic year.
In recognition of her incredible final year, Cerys received the Head Girl Cup for her contributions and commitment, not just this year, but throughout her time at Rydal Penrhos at the annual Speech Day prior to the summer break.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Cerys is incredibly passionate about all things associated with the performing arts but has also thrown herself whole-heartedly into other activities in school, becoming vice-captain of rounders this term.
“A privilege to know her, Cerys is completely self-effacing, a gentle-natured, kind girl who is a wonderful friend to others and a superb role-model, making her perfect for the role of Head Girl.
“We will miss Cerys very much and send her our very best wishes as she moves on to her new school.”
