Prep School announces new family reading initiative

Preparatory School parents will have the chance to contribute to their child’s learning thanks to a new initiative.

The first of Rydal Penrhos’ family reading sessions will take place on Thursday, September 21, and they will run for a four-week period leading up to the half term break.

They will begin at 8.30am at the Lyndon Library and have been set-up with the aim of encouraging reading outside of classroom hours, in addition to improve speech in-front of an audience.

This is the first in a large number of new initiatives that will be implemented throughout Rydal Penrhos’ Prep and Senior school as both sites continue to benefit from Headmaster Simon Smith’s five tenets of Learning, Living, Leading, Listening and Location.

The sessions will be available for Year 3 to Year 5 parents, and any parent that wishes to come along can do so at their convenience.

Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “This is something that we hope that parents will get involved with, as it is a great way for them to see just how much their child’s reading and ability to speak in-front of their classmates is progressing.

“The relationship that Rydal Penrhos has with its parents is something we take an enormous amount of pride in, and hopefully this will be another successful learning scheme similar to our Spelling Challenge which continues to thrive.”
