Christmas activities aplenty at Rydal Penrhos
November 29, 2021

Rydal Penrhos has announced its list of Christmas activities before the end of term, which are subject to change in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines.

Christmas is always an exciting time of year at Rydal Penrhos. There is a real buzz across the school campus and our staff have once again devised an action-packed schedule to ensure pupils go into their well-deserved break on a high.

These occasions are subject to COVID-19 guidelines at the time. Rydal Penrhos has endeavoured to follow every possible precaution to preserve the safety of the school community, so the scheduled events could be subject to change.

Here is a little Christmas taster of what we have in store for our children and young people this Yuletide.

On Monday 13 December we start our Nativity Play for the children and parents of Pre-School to Year 2.  This is a traditional tale told with a very modern twist! And families are very welcome to book into this in the Prep Hall at 2pm but it is only two tickets per family due to restrictions.

Then on Tuesday 14 December, pupils from Pre-School to Year 6 are being invited to come to school dressed in Christmas Jumpers (instead of school jumpers). They will celebrate with a marvellous Christmas dinner including the traditional singing in of the pudding!

This is being done to raise funds for Save the Children 

On Tuesday 14 December the senior pupils (Year 7-13) will be singing their way through the day as the annual House Singing competition takes to the stage in the Memorial Hall.

It is the turn of the senior pupils (Year 7-13) to take to school in their Christmas Jumpers on Wednesday 15 December. Raising money for Save the Children, they will be treated to a wonderful Christmas Dinner and who triumphs in the competition earns first inline in the dinner queue. 

In the afternoon of the same day we have one of the Christmas highlights as “The Christmas Extravaganza” kicks off in the Prep.

All Prep children who will have come to school dressed as something beginning with the letter J will be entertained by the pupils in Year 12 and 13 who will tell the traditional nativity story in the forest. 

The pupils will also meet the FORPS elves, attend a mini-Christmas market led by Business Studies pupils in Years 10 and 11 and meet Father Christmas himself! 

This cross-school initiative is done to raise funds for local charities. 

Parents are invited in once more on Thursday 16 December to accompany pupils in Years 5-13 and staff to the traditional Carol Service in aid of the RNLI. This takes place in St John’s Church at 7pm and tickets must be booked online. 

And the last day of term is Friday 17 December – a wonderful way for pupils and staff from Pre-School all the way through to Year 13 to celebrate is a final Christmas Chapel – a celebration service led by the Reverend Dr Rob Beamish and is set to feature a lion, a witch and a wardrobe!
