Two Sixth Form pupils at Rydal Penrhos have been recognised for their impressive contribution to a prominent project with a special award.
Anna Richardson and Morgan Roberts, Upper Sixth Form pupils at the school, came away with the Jane Crosland Good Samaritan Cup from the annual Speech Day event on Saturday, May 26.
The duo were the driving force behind the pupil-led campaign to renovate the Sixth Form Ferguson Centre, which received a tremendous amount of support from the entire Rydal Penrhos community to greatly exceed their fundraising target.
Work on the project is set to begin in the coming weeks and will be officially opened during the school’s annual Founders’ Weekend in September.
Both Anna and Morgan have also contributed significantly to a wide range of areas throughout Rydal Penrhos, and they leave us this summer knowing they have had a lasting impact on the school’s legacy.
They have been an integral part of life at the school for a number of years and held the positions of Head Boy and Girl at the Prep School before their transition to the senior site.
Head of Sixth Form Peter Lavery, said: “Anna and Morgan have absolutely astounded me with their maturity and leadership skills throughout their time at Rydal Penrhos, and they are thoroughly deserving of the Jane Crosland Good Samaritan Award.
“I have no doubt that their talent, drive and determination will see them go on to great things in the future, and I wish them both well during the next stage of their development at University.”
