Y6 thrive during annual Llanrug residential
October 1, 2019

A Preparatory School year group took part in a series of testing activities as part of an annual residential trip.

The Year 6 class were treated to a variety of action packed activities on the Isle of Anglesey at the Arete Outdoor Centre, situated in Llanrug.

During the five-day residential each pupil got the chance to trek around some of the picturesque mountains of Snowdonia, and they also rafted through lakes and even explored underground slate mines.

The fearless group also took part in Surfing, Coasteering, a night assault course, orienteering, kayaking and spending time in the site’s chillax room.

In addition pupils also got to investigate the local wildlife as part of number of educational projects devised by the centre staff.

This annual trip has been installed by staff into the calendar for a number of years, which gives the Year 6 contingent the chance to test themselves in a safe and supported environment, build friendships and cohesion as a group to give them the best possible platform for their final year of Prep School life.

Prep School Head Lucy Davies, said: “Our residential trip to the Arete Outdoor Centre in Llanrug is something that our Year 6 really look forward to, and all of them deserve an enormous amount of credit was representing Rydal Penrhos in an extremely positive fashion.

“They threw themselves into every challenging activity during the week and really pushed themselves to their limits, something that will do a considerable amount for their confidence and overall development.

“Their teamwork was another notable highlight from the trip, and I would like to thank centre staff for making us feel very welcome once again and to our staff for their guidance and motivation throughout the week.”
