Rydal Penrhos: Staff receive thanks for lockdown efforts
July 7, 2020

Staff at Rydal Penrhos received an outpouring of support for their efforts during the coronavirus school lockdown.

It was an unprecedented time for all concerned with the school, but Rydal Penrhos teachers and support staff went above and beyond the call of duty.

This included ensuring that each pupil got the most out of their online learning, in addition to taking every necessary precaution down to the last detail so that children and staff alike returned to a safe working and learning environment.

Rydal Penrhos was also incredibly active throughout the community to assist in whatever way they could. The school’s PPE project produced thousands of protective masks for NHS and frontline facilities across the region, boarding facilities were opened for keyworkers who couldn’t go home, childcare provision was available for non-Rydal Penrhos families and pupils made masks and raised money for various causes.

Here are some of the message received on Rydal Penrhos’ social media channels in recent days:

A big thank you to all the staff during these strange times and how you have worked so hard to keep some sort of normality and learning opportunities in the children’s lives. We do appreciate all your effort.

Big thank you to all of the staff over these past few months for all their hard work and dedication and keeping us up to date and included in the Rydal family. It is really appreciated by us all.

Great work guys. Tough time for everyone so we really appreciate all your efforts behind the scenes.

A huge thank you to all of you. Tough times indeed and all children need is to be children.

A job well done.

So well organised and a wonderful welcome back.

Lots of happy faces there!! Well done!

More than ready. Children will be overjoyed. Sending smiles and hi-fives!

Thank you to Rydal for the fantastic keyworker childcare support. We are so very grateful to all the staff who have given up so much time to look after our children so that we can continue to do our jobs. You have all been amazing and our children have felt safe and cared for throughout. You are a superb team. Thank you.

Fantastic school and children with an inspirational headteacher at the helm.

An absolutely superb effort from all concerned.

Thank you to all Rydal staff for their amazing dedication and support throughout this difficult time. It is really appreciated.

“My child” was so excited to come back to school, and knowing that she was safe was a massive load off our minds. Well done to all the staff.

Our care homes have strong links with local communities; the generosity of local businesses has been amazing, Rydal Penrhos providing face shields to Merton Place.

Excellent community support …. thank you.
