Ester secures Head Girl role for 2022/23 academic year
September 6, 2022

Rydal Penrhos is thrilled to announce the appointment of Ester Ball-Iversen as Head Girl for the 2022/23 academic year.

Our Sixth Form leaders are exceptional role models for younger members of the Rydal Penrhos community. This is especially evident with the school’s Senior Prefect team, who are tremendous ambassadors in school and across the community, raising money and awareness for worthy causes throughout the region and beyond.

The outgoing team did a remarkable job of keeping spirits high across the school, which was vital as each year group began adjusting to life post-COVID restrictions during their welcome return to normality.

They are now heading on to the next stage of their respective journeys at university, in the working world or during GAP years, with staff at the school guiding them every step of the way to ensure they are fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead for them.

Looking forward, the school is delighted to announce that Ester Ball-Iversen has been appointed as Head Girl for the 2022/23 academic year, replacing Shruthi Ganapathi.

Ester arrived at Rydal Penrhos as a Year 9 pupil and wasted no time integrating with her peers. Her academic accomplishments are vast, with her leadership and extra-curricular exploits also coming in for glowing praise during her time at the school.

Her sterling dedication to academic development came with some incredible GCSE results. Ester secured no fewer than five 9 marks, four A* grades, one A and a Distinction in Additional Mathematics despite the uncertain climate.

Ester is also a member of the school’s hockey and netball squads and is also making considerable progress within the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme to further enhance her experiences.

Congratulations to Ester on securing the coveted Head Girl position. We are confident you’ll represent yourself and Rydal Penrhos in an exemplary fashion.
