Two Rydal Penrhos Prep School pupils spent part of their Christmas break volunteering at a community initiative to help those in need.
Helping out in the community is something that forms a big part of life at Rydal Penrhos. The school holds a large number of fundraising days throughout the academic year, with schemes such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Activity Week focusing on helping out throughout Colwyn Bay and the wider Conwy region.
Our pupils also do their utmost to help worthy causes alongside their academic studies and extra-curricular activities. Many of them partake in fundraising initiatives both individually and with specific groups that they’re involved in away from school, which is a testament to their selfless nature and willingness to help others.
Another example of this selfless attitude across Rydal Penrhos came from two Prep School siblings who spent the early part of their end-of-term break lending their support to a worthwhile cause.
Holly and Harrison Hogan, who are Year 5 and Year 6 pupils, gave up their time to help pack and deliver free Christmas meals to those in need across the community.
The brother-sister duo supported the FoodShare North Wales Community Christmas Meal programme, which recognises that for many it is difficult to provide festive cheer for their families at this time of year.
A huge well done to Holly and Harrison on their efforts. We know it meant a great deal to everyone associated with the programme and Rydal Penrhos is incredibly proud of the caring young people you’re becoming.
