A group of Preparatory School pupils put a portion of their break too good use by taking part in a nationwide summer spelling challenge.
Ava and William Culver, together with fellow Rydal Penrhos pupil Steffan Atestaedt successfully completed the Animal Agents 2017 Challenge, and all three received certificates for their respective achievements on Friday, September 15.
The trio had to help the fictional agents in their efforts to solve a special mystery by reading a minimum of six books throughout the school holidays, which provided them with specific clues in relation to the task.
This challenge was held at libraries across the country, and the pupils also had the chance to write book reviews regarding the stories they had read during the initiative.
Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “This challenge was a great for all three pupils to improve their reading throughout the holiday, while also having a great deal of fun in the process.
“Activities that enhance learning are something that we actively encourage here at Rydal Penrhos, and our parents and pupils do a fantastic job of using their own initiative to ensure their child gets the most out of their summer break.
“This is a trend that I hop continues long into the future and congratulations go to Ava, Will and Steffan for their dedication to the challenge."
