Caitriona enrolled at Rydal Penrhos as a Year 1 pupil and made a considerable impact at the Prep School as Joint-Head Girl, where she provided the younger members of the school community with a wonderful role model who also offered considerable support and guidance during her time in the role.
She has continued this trend during her first 18 months as a Senior School pupil, where she played a leading role in last year’s RPS Showstoppers extravaganza that celebrated all things related to Musical Theatre.
Her academic progress is a source of great pride and encouragement, and her overall music knowledge has seen Caitriona secure a host of Grading achievements that have defied her age.
Caitriona is also a Chorister at St Asaph Cathedral and was one of the youngest to secure the prominent position, and her exploits in a sporting environment has been another standout feature of her contribution to life here at Rydal Penrhos.
Cosette is the child of Fantine. She is the ward of the Thenardiers forced into child labour and sings "Castle On A Cloud”.
She is a trembling little creature, underfed, beaten by Madame Thenardier and bullied by Eponine.
