Prep School Stars of the Week: 29 January 2021
January 29, 2021

Rydal Penrhos Prep School’s Stars of the Week for 29 January 2021.

A host of Rydal Penrhos Prep School pupils have been rewarded for their outstanding work both at school and during their online learning thanks to an ongoing initiative.

As part of the school’s achievement scheme, pupils across all age groups were selected for accolades in recognition of their efforts throughout the week, which has seen all age groups tackle the ever-changing learning methods due to COVID-19 with their customary enthusiasm and incredible attitude.

This has been assisted by a thorough programme that has enabled the majority of lessons to remain the same – albeit in a virtual format – which has come as a result of an exceptional effort from Prep School teaching staff in difficult circumstances.

It is a bumper edition this week, which is further explained by Prep School head Lucy Davies:

This week has been another week full of online excitement and full days of interactive lessons. Our pupils, even those in Reception, are super-techies and can all upload work into the correct file, take photos as evidence and type directly onto shared documents.

Children really are brilliant learners!

Our teachers are finding it increasingly hard to pick the Star of the Week and often try and ‘barter’ with me to have their whole class as stars!

This week we also found out that our pupils who took LAMDA speech and drama exams just before Christmas all passed with distinction, a fantastic feat indeed and well done to their teacher, Mrs Wilder.

In the musical arena, we also had Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music examination success with Head Boy Noah Roberts passing grades in two instruments and Oscar Jewsbury on the piano with their teacher, Mrs Frost.

More details will be coming in separate stories.
