Year 7 take part in first Peer Mentor activity session of academic year

Year 7 pupils took part in a series of activities as part of their first Peer Mentor session of the academic year.

The Rydal Penrhos pupils descended on the Sports Hall for the activity on Friday, September 15, where they were supported by Lower Sixth Form pupils that have applied for the role this year.

During the event the pupils were split up into groups of three and were given a series of tasks that were designed to improve communication, teamwork and problem solving skills.

This was also part of the assessment process for each Sixth Form pupil that has applied for the role, with more than 20 having put their name forward for a position.

Successful candidates will be revealed in the coming days, and they will be responsible for aiding younger members of the Rydal Penrhos community, in addition to providing additional support to the school’s Prefect team.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Our leadership positions are something that our Sixth Form pupils take a great deal of pride in, and they offer a platform of support and guidance for the younger year groups to make their time here at Rydal Penrhos as enjoyable as it possibly can be.

“These Peer Mentor activities are just a small portion of this and hopefully the new recruits to the team can carry on its fine tradition.”
