Medical student visits Year 5 for science session
June 13, 2022

Year 5 pupils at Rydal Penrhos received a special visit from a third-year medical student for a Science session to boost their development.

Finding ways to inspire our pupils on a daily basis is something that sets Rydal Penrhos apart. This is evident from Pre-School to Sixth Form and provides each young learner with the tools needed for a successful education and enables them to thrive long after they leave school.

The school is consistently coming up with ways to improve and enhance the learning experience. With COVID-19 restrictions now eased considerably, visits to prominent landmarks across the region have resumed and Rydal Penrhos is also able to welcome special guests to speak with pupils and hold sessions on various different subjects.

This has been known to add intrigue and delves deeper into specific topics that might not necessarily be part of the typical curriculum. Something that ignites curiosity and gives pupils the opportunity to investigate new things individually and as part of a team.

Year 5 pupils were recently treated to a visit from Dana Awaad, who is a third-year medical student at Cardiff University, during a Science session that explored children’s conditions.

The objective of Miss Awaad’s session was to make pupils more aware of common medical conditions that they or their friends may have.

This involved sharing detailed information about diabetes, asthma, eczema, autism, epilepsy, learning difficulties and disabilities. The pupils were then tasked with carrying out further research using their iPads and models that Miss Awaad had brought into Rydal Penrhos.

They finished the session being able to recognise these conditions. Armed with this knowledge, they will be able to support any friends that may have them now or in the future.

We would like to thank Miss Awaad for visiting Rydal Penrhos for a very informative session with Year 5. This was well received by the group and something that will stand their studies and overall awareness in tremendous stead moving forward.
