Half term concludes with annual Harvest Service
October 29, 2019

Rydal Penrhos Preparatory School closed out the first half term of the academic year with its annual Harvest Service.

Staff, pupils and family members gathered at St John’s Church on Friday, October 18 for the event, which is the final item on the calendar before everyone headed off on their well-deserved two-week break.

The Reverend Nick Sissons kicked-off proceedings with a welcoming address, and there were also reading from Layko Driver, Eryn Mart, Steffan Atenstaedt and Sophie Winters-Jones.

There were musical performances from the Prep School Choir and the Treble-Makers to further enhance the occasion, with Rev’d Sissons enlisting the help of George Rozek and Sophie Morris to tell a story about an Irish saint.

The service proudly displayed the large number of food items donated for the annual Harvest collection, which have now been distributed between Action for Children and the Conwy Food Bank.

A representative from Action for Children was also present at the event and spoke briefly about where the items will go and to thank everyone who donated.

Prep School Head Lucy Davies, said: “Our Harvest Service was a wonderful occasion and the perfect way to end what was a hugely successful first half term of the academic year.

“It was great to see so many of our pupils engaging throughout the event, and I would like to thanks Reverend Sissons for putting together a very entertaining service for those in attendance.”
