Saturday 11th September saw Old Girls and Boys victorious against the School in Founders’ Weekend sports fixtures, as the Old Girls took the Netball trophy and the Rydal Dragons, the Old Boys’ Hockey team, took the Boys’ Hockey trophy. The School salvaged its pride with a win in Girls’ Hockey!
The Netball and Girls’ Hockey trophies were donated by the family of Natalie Kate Moss, a Rydal Penrhos pupil between 1996 and 2003, while the Boys’ Hockey trophy, The Mather Trophy, was donated by Phil and Karen Mather.
Natalie tragically died at the age of 26 of a brain haemorrhage and in her memory, her family set up the Natalie Kate Moss (NKM) Trust, which partners with the University of Manchester, where Natalie studied, to fund groundbreaking research into the prevention and treatment of brain haemorrhages, as well as supporting those who suffer brain injuries through their studies.
Competing for Natalie’s trophy was a particularly special moment for the Old Girls who had played netball with Natalie when she was a pupil.
Players and supporters then ate lunch together in the Dining Room, and in the evening festivities continued at the Rydal Penrhos Society Dinner, held on school premises for the first time in its history.
Thank you so much to all alumni who joined us for the weekend. You can view a gallery of photos from the day here.
