Young skiers shine at Welsh Schools Championships
October 20, 2021

Rydal Penrhos’ young skiers produced another fabulous effort at the Welsh Schools Championships in Llangranog.

Rydal Penrhos is extremely proud of the skiing success accumulated by our talented pupils over the years. This unique element to the school’s exceptional extra-curricular provision is something that’s brought a vast number of achievements since the programme began to reflect the outstanding progress being made under the tutelage of our incredible staff team.

Many of our skiers have gone on to achieve individual and team achievements for the school and individually at regional and national competitions. Events that are now back in full swing thanks to COVID-19 restrictions at Alert Level 0 in accordance with Welsh Government guidelines.

Team Rydal Penrhos made the trip to Llangranog on Saturday 9 October for the Welsh Primary Schools Skiing Championships, which saw the group take on some of the best young skiers in the country at one of the most competitive events of the year.

The school was looking to build on some incredible achievements at the North Wales regional competition against tougher opposition, which brought out the very best in all of them en route to some impressive eventual finishes.

Margot finished second U8 girl after a superb effort, with William and Wilfred also shining to come third and second respectively in the U8 boys’ event.

Another standout performer from the competition was Freddie, who came third in the U12 boys’ category with a fantastic display on the dry slope.

There was further cause for celebration in the U12 girls’ category, which saw Beatrice and Ella come second and third to round off another outstanding overall performance from Rydal Penrhos on the national stage.

This was another wonderful experience for the skiing team, who also got the chance to enjoy a film night, play rounders on the beach and also assist in a beach clean-up that was taking place throughout the weekend.

Mr McLeod put together a fantastic highlights video detailing their experiences throughout the trip and we are absolutely delighted with not only the team’s success but the way they represented Rydal Penrhos in an exemplary fashion.

Well done to all!
