Incredibly busy October half-term Holiday Club
October 29, 2021

It was an incredibly busy October half-term from Rydal Penrhos’ Holiday Club, with plenty of trips and activities for pupils to enjoy.

The Holiday Club is open for all Rydal Penrhos pupils from Pre-School through to Year 8. Our incredible staff team vary the activities throughout the day and the October half-term schedule was action-packed, to say the least.

Those using the provision were immensely active throughout the two-week period, with the school making the most of our fantastic location and the notable attractions just a short distance away from Rydal Penrhos.

Excursions included a beach day in Colwyn Bay, a trip to see the wonderful animals residing at the Welsh Mountain Zoo and exploring medieval life at Conwy Castle.

Another popular day out for the group was the time spent at Caernarfon Castle, which is extremely well preserved and the scene for Royal events in years past including the investiture of the Prince of Wales in 1969.

The Holiday Club also got the opportunity to visit the National Slate Museum, which is dedicated to the preservation and display of relicts of the Slate industry in Wales and full of fascinating information that pupils can take back into the classroom.

Essential key skills were developed within Rydal Penrhos’ impressive Forest School site, with tent and camp building sessions working on areas such as teamwork, communication and motor skills.

With Halloween fast approaching, our Holiday Club got creative during a cooking activity that saw them produce some delicious pumpkin-style cakes to enjoy.

This outstanding provision is not possible without the tireless commitment of our staff team. We would like to thank them all for their hard work over the half-term break.
