Rydal Penrhos pupils are set to get the experience of a lifetime after staff organised an exciting excursion to Iceland.
Whether children are just starting out their journeys through education or getting ready for the next stage as Sixth Formers, Rydal Penrhos endeavours to treat every pupil as an individual with a broad academic curriculum and extra-curricular options that cater to every possible passion and interest they may have.
This includes offering exceptional opportunities to enhance development outside of a typical classroom environment. Examples of this include outdoor education initiatives, visiting prominent landmarks across the North Wales region and on occasion, sampling the culture of different countries during tours and trips.
Rydal Penrhos has confirmed another voyage for pupils that will live long in the memory. The school has teamed up with WST Travel for a visit to Iceland, where they will be staying in the picturesque city of Reykjavik for an action-packed three days.
Upon arriving at their destination, pupils will jump right into their activities with a visit to the Blue Lagoon before exploring some incredible sites around Reykjavik. These include the jaw-dropping Perlan Observation Deck.
Their second day features a guided coach excursion, exploring the spectacular sites of Iceland’s Golden Circle such as the Kerid Centre, Fridheimar Greenhouses and the Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant. This will prove invaluable for aspiring scientists at Rydal Penrhos as they look to get a broader perception of how things work in different continental nations.
The third and final day is equally as busy. This will see pupils and staff embark on a guided coach excursion to the South Shore to witness for themselves the many incredible geographical features including the Lava Centre.
Not only will this bolster pupils’ overall knowledge of scientific and geographical matters relating to their curriculum, but it is also a fantastic way to boost friendships, become more comfortable in unfamiliar surroundings and increase a sense of independence despite being supervised throughout by Rydal Penrhos staff.
This is the third excursion arranged by the school over this academic year, following the Poland educational trip and the Sports Tour to The Netherlands.
