May 11, 2020

A Preparatory School year group have gatecrashed Rydal Penrhos’ 100-mile Health and Wellbeing Challenge with an incredible weekly total.

The challenge is to collectively complete 100 miles of exercise a week. This will be logged by teacher Sean Kitchen and the first year group to reach the target, wins!

Each pupil taking part is to record their mileage on whatever health app they choose during allocated exercise.

Unbeknown to the senior school, Year 6 took it upon themselves to participate in the initiative and managed to record an exceptional 247.83 miles as a result of their efforts.

Eloise Brown led the way with 59.12 miles, closely followed by Cameron Pye on 50.84.7

Head Girl Fleur Roberts and Lucy Ranales-Griffiths managed to record more than 20-miles from the week, with Ellie Knight logging 19.48 miles throughout the week.

Nathan Richards, Charlotte Payne and Tilly Trueman also surpassed double-figure mileage from the week, with Archie Green, Lily Copeland, Rafe Tunstall and Clarence Chasteau also contributing during an amazing week of activity!

Senior school teacher Nicky Head highlighted the Year 6 effort as “amazing” and added it had “blown everyone in the senior school out of the water, including staff”.
