Creative and Performing Arts week hailed a success

Rydal Penrhos’ most creative minds were celebrated thanks to a special week-long initiative.

The school held a Creative and Performing Arts Week from Monday, April 30 until Friday, May 4, which featured a host of different activities across a number of different departments.

Head of English and Drama Leah Crimes held a special activity afternoon for Year 7-9 pupils, which featured a wide range of different tasks to build confidence and teamwork on stage.

Lower Sixth Form A-level Drama pupils held a workshop for staff, where they passed on their knowledge of the subject and led the group in a series of fun-filled exercises.

There was also a welcome guest in the form of director Simon Winterman, who represents the Sudden Impulse Theatre Company and was the mastermind behind the recent success of Accidental Death of an Anarchist.

Rydal Penrhos’ Art department also contributed to the festivities in the form of a Super Doodle, which was located in the Memorial Quad and staff room that featured some incredibly creative work from the school community.

The Design and Technology department showcased their exceptional GCSE and A-level coursework throughout the week, while a large number of pupils entertained the Dining Room on Friday for a ‘Flash Mob’ performance.

The week culminated with the inaugural Creative and Performing Arts dinner, which celebrated the fantastic work done throughout the academic year in addition to the presentations of the first ever half and full colours in Drama.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “It was a truly wonderful week and a perfect example of the thriving Creative and Performing Arts work being done by staff and pupils at our fantastic school.”
