Year 5 and 6 take part in bench transformation
June 16, 2021

Year 5 and 6 pupils at Rydal Penrhos have been transforming benches across the site as part of their latest project.

Our pupils at Rydal Penrhos are always coming up with good ways to improve the school. A place where they learn, build friendships and care deeply about.

This is evident across all year groups and forms a key component of the school’s success throughout history. Various projects take place across the site during the academic year, with pupils also keen to lend their support to charitable causes in the region and beyond whenever given the opportunity.

Another fine example of this came from the School Council, who decided at a recent meeting that the benches situated across their playground should be decorated to make them more attractive for pupils and visitors to Rydal Penrhos.

These plans are now turning into action, proving that pupil power is alive and well at Rydal Penrhos.

A small group of Year 5 and 6 pupils have been working in their own time after school to transform several of the benches, with the first two completed with a Mexican folk theme that they took from recent lessons at the school’s fantastic art facility.

The benches have drawn many admiring comments from staff and younger members of the school community, with the group already turning their attention to other benches situated on-site.

They are now busy working on a ‘Beano’ comic decoupage bench and a ‘Van Gogh’ bench, which promise to add further creativity and colour to the area and is a further testament to pupils’ desire to make the school a better place.

The School Council is inviting ideas for their final benches, which can be made via school council reps.

We are incredibly proud of our pupils at Rydal Penrhos. Their work ethic, compassion and care for the school is unparalleled and these traits will stand them in enormously good stead as they progress through their education.
