A Sixth Form pupil has been rewarded for his incredibly supportive contribution to the school with a special award.
Matthias Fiorita, a Year 12 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, took home the Jane Crosland Good Samaritan Cup from Rydal Penrhos’ annual Speech Day celebration, which is one of the most prominent dates on the calendar.
He received the accolade from former pupil Dr Victoria Galbraith, who attended the event as the special guest speaker.
The pupil was presented with the prize for his selfless contribution to various charity events throughout the academic year at the school, which also played a significant part in Matthias being appointed to the Sixth Form Prefect team and Morgan House Captain for the 2019/20 academic year.
He is the brother of outgoing Head Boy Nick and has also aided younger members of the Rydal Penrhos community in a hugely positive way in his role as a Peer Mentor.
Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “Matthias is a wonderful role model and has taken the responsibility that comes with being a Sixth Former here at Rydal Penrhos very seriously.
“This has further heightened his overall influence both among his peers and throughout the school in general, and Matthias is a very deserving of the Jane Crosland Good Samaritan Cup as he looks to carry on this success during his final year at Rydal Penrhos before the next stage of his journey.”
