Holiday Club: Beddgelert trip explores Welsh legend
July 27, 2022

Rydal Penrhos Holiday Club children discovered more about a legendary Welsh tale as part of their busy series of activities.

The Rydal Penrhos Holiday Club is open during the school holidays and provides an extensive programme of activities for the children to experience. This is not only a lot of fun, but it also helps assist them with their emotional, physical, social, intellectual, language and creative development.

Another exciting adventure for the group was exploring Welsh culture during a trip to Beddgelert, which began by walking along the picturesque heritage trail to the burial marker which told the legend of Gelert.

This was followed by visiting the house of Gelert and the bronze statue situated nearby. The Holiday Club spoke about how the house is a lot different to those from the modern era.

They walked across the footbridge and threw sticks into the river below to see which would get to the other side the quickest. As the group were walking back to the minibus, they noticed stacks of stones along the side of the riverbank.

The children then worked in teams of two and three to build their own towers out of the pebbles to round off an immensely worthwhile trip to a prominent area steeped in Welsh history and heritage.

The Summer Holiday Club is running from 11 July to 26 August (Monday to Friday). For those aged 5 to 12, the Holiday Club is open for external children. For current Rydal Penrhos pupils, the Holiday Club is open for Pre-School to Year 8.

The cost is £45 per day and includes all trips, activities, sports and crafts as well as two snacks, a packed lunch and a fresh-cooked meal. A sibling discount of 5 per cent is available.
