As part of an ongoing series of features throughout the summer at Rydal Penrhos, we take a look at the newly appointed Sixth Form leadership positions and the pupils that have secured them in ‘Meet the Captains’.
The final instalment features Boarding House captains Venus, Jan, Boris and Maksym:
Another huge feature throughout the academic year is the Boarding Inter-House competitions, and the newly appointed quartet will be aiming to lead their respective boarding houses to glory in their respective leadership positions.
Chinese boarder Boris has been at Beecholme and Rydal Penrhos since enrolling as a Year 9 pupil in 2015, and he has emerged as a leading figure within the house and a strong sense of support for younger members of the boarding community.
He is extremely enthusiastic and is always leading from the foot, traits that made him a perfect candidate for the Prefect team as Beecholme Boarding House Captain.
Jan’s overall contribution during his first year as a member of the Rydal Penrhos community has seen the Sixth Former given the role of Hathaway House captain, and this responsibility is sure to propel him to even greater heights in the future.
He is a talented rugby player who has made a telling contribution to the school’s senior XV in addition to his regional side Pwllheli, and he also lent his support to a series of charity initiatives that raised thousands for regional and national causes.
Venus will have the task of leading girls’ boarding house Edwards throughout the upcoming year, and the strong academic has a huge influence thanks to her calm demeanour and approachable nature.
The 18-year-old is another that has made a lasting impression on Rydal Penrhos life despite only being at the school for one year, with Housemistress Fiona Earle hugely complimentary of the boarder and the application she has demonstrated
Rounding off the appointments is Maksym, who will aim to guide Netherton to yet more accolades in the skipper role, will the intelligent role model holding a great deal of respect of his peers thanks to his support, approachability and desire to succeed.
