Two Sixth Form pupils will be looking to improve Rydal Penrhos’ eco-friendliness after being appointed to leadership positions.
Millie Collins and Raha Aminnejad, Year 12 pupils at the school, have been named as Co-Chairs of the Sixth Form Eco Committee with immediate effect.
The duo will be tasked with improving Rydal Penrhos’ carbon footprint, in addition to raising awareness of exceptionally important matters such as climate change and recycling materials.
Both Millie and Raha have shown a tremendous passion within the committee during their first year as Sixth Formers, which earned them the right to lead the group for the foreseeable future.
This is just one of many leadership opportunities available as part of the school’s thriving Sixth Form, with those living and learning at the site presented with the chance to join various committees or apply for the coveted Prefect positions.
Acting Head Sally Harding, said: “Millie and Raha are very valued members of the community here at Rydal Penrhos, and they are going to be excellent in their Co-Chair roles within our Sixth Form Eco Committee.
“We are strong believers in enhancing leadership whenever possible across all year groups, which is essential in terms of their overall development and gives them a chance to familiarise themselves with extra responsibility.
“This has brought with it significant success since its implementation and it is something that we are enormously proud of.”
