A selfless Rydal Penrhos pupil has been acknowledged for her fine charitable efforts with a special award.
Charlotte Owen, an Upper Sixth pupil at the school, has been at the forefront of a host of charity events throughout the course of the academic year, something which saw her given Rydal Penrhos’ Award for Charity Work.
The outgoing Head Girl was one of the key organisers in the school’s annual Christmas Market, which raised more than £1,000 for Conwy children’s hospice Ty Gobaith.
She also helped contribute to the success of events such as Water Aid Day and Red Nose Day alongside the Sixth Form Charity Committee.
The 18-year-old was presented with the award at Rydal Penrhos’ annual Speech Day event, which was held earlier this year, and Charlotte follows on from Hannah Cashell and Shaswath Ganapathi, who were joint winners of the accolade in 2016.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Charlotte is a thoroughly deserving winner of the Charity prize, which is a testament to how dedicated she has been to raising money for worthy causes throughout the region and abroad.
“She has given up a lot of her own time to making sure a host of events have been a success, despite studying for her International Baccalaureate examinations, which tells you all you need to know about her character and willingness to help others.
“Our departing Head Girl has been a huge part of the Rydal Penrhos community and she will be sorely missed by staff and pupils alike.”
