Year 7 praised for attitude during annual team building residential

Year 7 pupils at Rydal Penrhos were tested to their limits as part of a team building residential.

The group embarked on the annual event from Sunday, October 1 to Monday 2, where they participated in a series of testing activities at various locations throughout the region.

For their first activity they travelled to Beddgelert, where they braved the elements for a circular walk, where they took in some of the picturesque sites of the of the Gwynedd village situated in Snowdonia.

After returning to school grounds, they were then given the opportunity to try the exciting Inflatable assault course, which was purchased for the swimming pool by the Friends of Rydal Penrhos committee thanks to their fundraising efforts.

Their final day saw the thrill-seeking pupils travel to the Beacon Climbing Centre for some high octane climbing, in addition to off-road biking at Plas Menai.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Each pupil demonstrated a substantial amount of enthusiasm throughout the two days, and all are to be commended for their attitude and the way they conducted themselves.

“This residential is something that has become hugely beneficial for our new senior school pupils, and hopefully this will stand them in good stead as they look to become a valuable part of the Rydal Penrhos community in the coming months.”
