Rydal Penrhos: Mr Kitchen’s press-up challenge
May 26, 2020

A teacher at Rydal Penrhos has set out another challenge for pupils to try out during the half-term break.

Sean Kitchen, who is a former pupil that teaches Physical Education at Rydal Penrhos, has begun to produce a series of fitness-related videos with a view to keeping children at the school active during the coronavirus pandemic shutdown.

His latest challenge involves a 30-second press-up routine that pupils, staff and parents can do from the comfort of their own homes.

They can upload their contributions to a special FlipGrid link (https://flipgrid.com/28a1dc88), and the videos will then be made into a montage at the start of next week.

This is the latest in a series of initiatives from Rydal Penrhos’ Health and Wellbeing faculty during the Covid-19 lockdown, with the Physical Education team also providing some exciting challenges last Friday on the school’s innovative Turtl platform.

Mr Kitchen, said: “This is an unprecedented time for everyone and our pupils at Rydal Penrhos are no different.

“They have been a real credit to themselves and the school during their online learning so far, but it is equally as important to stay fit and active during the coronavirus lockdown.

“We are looking forward to receiving contributions from pupils, staff and parents from this latest challenge, and good luck to those taking part.”
