Mrs Murphy gives account of India trip during latest Academic Scholar session

A group of Academic Scholars at Rydal Penrhos got a first-hand account of a recent trip to South Asia over the summer break.

As part of the latest session for those that have been awarded Academic Scholarships, Head of Lower School Gabriella Murphy led those in attendance for “An RS Teacher in India”, which centred on Rydal Penrhos’ landmark trip to the country earlier this year.

During the session, Mrs Murphy went through in great detail various significant elements of the trip, including the gruelling travel aspect and notable excursions to the Himalayas and the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world.

Mrs Murphy also went through the charity work undertaken by the group during their unforgettable fortnight, before concluding with her own experiences and what the popular teacher gained from the trip.

This is the latest in a series of such sessions put on by Rydal Penrhos’ dedicated staff, who devised the initiative last year and it has gone from strength-to-strength in a short period of time.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Our India 2018 group took full advantage of a wonderful opportunity presented to them by our amazing staff, and it is fantastic to see Mrs Murphy giving younger members of the school community a full rundown of what the trip was like from her perspective.

“Hopefully this will inspire those in attendance to get involved with excursions such as this in the future, and I would like to thank Mrs Murphy for delivering another very worthwhile Academic Scholar session for some of our brightest young minds.”
