Sixth Form Centre hosts RP Society North Wales Dinner
September 17, 2019

Rydal Penrhos pupils past and present gathered for one of the most long-standing social events on the school calendar.

The annual Rydal Penrhos Society North Wales Dinner was held at the Sixth Form Ferguson Centre on Saturday, September 14, which saw a large number of Alumni travel the length and breadth of the country to catch up with old friends and return to the school once again.

This was the first time that the event had been held within a school facility and it proved to be another tremendous success.

In addition to a lavish meal produced by Rydal Penrhos’ dedicated staff team from Holroyd Howe, Upper Sixth Form pupil Amy Yue entertained those in attendance with a stunning acapella vocal performance.

The multi-talented boarder recently scored an incredible 95 out of a possible 100 in her Grade 8 London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art Gold assessment, and she also featured on national television in her native country during the Chinese New Year celebrations.

Newly appointed Head Boy Ioan Peake-Jones and Head Girl Millie Collins also gave addresses on the rich history of the school and the exciting plans for Rydal Penrhos, with temporary President Graham Knowles also talking about his fond memories to round off another thoroughly entertaining evening.

The dinner was held as part of the Founders’ Weekend celebrations, which saw the Society’s Annual General Meeting take place prior to the event.
