‘Wish you were here’: Prep’s special message to parents
November 25, 2020

Rydal Penrhos Prep families got a special message from staff and pupils after they were not permitted to come into school for their usual parents’ evening.

Wish you were here…

Parents evening took on a bit of a twist this term with COVID-19 restrictions preventing the event from taking place in its normal format at Rydal Penrhos Prep School this term.

Quick to adapt in the face of adversity and always done with a sense of humour and a lightness of touch the Rydal Penrhos’ hard-working staff and pupils put together something to tell each parent how much they are missed and outlining their excitement about welcoming them back on-site once some semblance of normality resumes in the coming months.

A message from the Prep School, reads: “It’s so quiet by our front desk, parents’ evenings are not the same online…we miss you and look forward to a time when you can come into school again.

“We thought we would send you some photos of our latest work on display around the classes and corridors! We have all been working very hard, whether this is with our iPads or whether it is sitting around a table discussing our learning.

“Our school looks just as exciting and lovely as ever.

“Best wishes from all of the Staff and Pupils.”

This has been a difficult time for everyone, but Rydal Penrhos has strived to ensure the school remains as normal as possible and enable each child to thrive in a safe, happy and nurturing environment.

Rydal Penrhos introduced free iPads for pupils in Years 3-13 to boost their learning in and out of the classroom, with those below Year 3 also able to utilize them in school.

Exciting outdoor education schemes such as Coastal School, Forest School and Sport are still going on amid social distancing guidelines, with the school’s swimming pool also resuming sessions earlier this month.

We would like to thank all pupils, staff and families for their cooperation during an unprecedented period of disruption and as the postcard states, the school cannot wait to have you back when it is safe to do so.
