Mollie completes RLSS Pool Lifeguard qualification

A Sixth Form pupil at Rydal Penrhos has been rewarded for her excellent application with a notable qualification.

Mollie Smithfield, a Year 13 pupil at the school, successfully completed her RLSS Pool Lifeguard course, which now enables them to gain employment on a poolside if they wish.

The sports scholar has been working hard at various sessions under the stewardship of Head of Swimming Maciej Ruszkowski and his dedicated staff, while also taking part in a series of different assessments in accordance with the programme.

She also received first aid training as part of the course, and this is one of many opportunities to gain qualifications outside of classroom hours that enhances the experience of each pupil involved as they look ahead to their further education options and working life.

Mr Ruszkowski, said: “Mollie has worked incredibly hard to gain her RLSS Pool Lifeguard qualification, and I am delighted that she passed her assessment before heading off on the next stage of her journey this summer.

“She has been a delight to be around and has achieved so much during her Sixth Form life, and hopefully this solid foundation is going to stand her in very good stead going forward and I would like to congratulate Mollie on all her success.”
