Pupils enjoy fun-filled Easter Holiday Club
April 15, 2021

It’s been another busy couple of weeks for the Rydal Penrhos Holiday Club over the Easter break.

We understand that for our parents at Rydal Penrhos, things can be especially difficult in the holidays regarding childcare and having to keep children entertained alongside the pressures of work. This has been especially evident over the last 12 months with working from home during COVID-19, which has forced almost everyone to adapt to ever-changing surroundings to prevent the risk of infection.

This is a strain we look to alleviate with our Holiday Club, which is available all year round during half terms, longer end-of-term breaks and throughout the summer holidays. It allows pupils to remain in school throughout the day, participating in group activities with their friends under the supervision of staff and gives parents peace of mind that their children are safe and happy in familiar surroundings.

There was lots going on during the well-deserved Easter break at the club, with staff putting together a diverse programme that featured a host of thought-provoking, physical, and creative activities for those in attendance.

The club is split into two groups in accordance with age, with fun challenges coming in the form of balancing, putting their artistic skills to good use during weaving sessions, in addition to a special hide and seek game at Rydal Penrhos’ impressive Forest School site.

Prior to the Bank Holiday weekend, pupils also spent time making some colourful Easter crafts under the supervision of staff, with aspiring young athletes also given a chance to hone their gymnastic skills.

Having this interaction with friends and other peer groups is sure to stand Holiday Club members in enormously good stead as they get set to embark on what should an extremely exciting summer term at Rydal Penrhos.

Lots of popular activities will be returning to the schedule thanks to decreasing coronavirus cases across the country, which has Sports Day, Speech Day, concerts and drama productions all back on the schedule before it’s time to say goodbye to the academic year for the summer holidays.

Rydal Penrhos’ Holiday Club provides an extensive programme of activities that the children can experience, and this assists them with their emotional, physical, social, intellectual, language and creative development in a relaxed and friendly setting away from a typical school day.

Activities are always varied throughout the day to maintain focus and the interest of each child under the care of Rydal Penrhos staff, which has proved highly beneficial for key development areas such as communication, confidence and problem solving that can be used upon their return to school.

Outdoor play and sports activities are included most days. Local outings around some beautiful sites across North Wales are something that will also come back onto the calendar with the Welsh Government now relaxing restrictions regarding COVID-19, although these plans are obviously subject to change.
