Final preparations being made ahead of Speech Day 2018

Final preparations are being made ahead of one of the most highlighted events on the Rydal Penrhos calendar.

The school’s annual Speech Day will take place on Saturday, May 26, and inspirational former pupil Flt Lt Nathan Jones will be sharing his incredible story with those in attendance as this year’s special guest speaker.

Chair of Governors’ Julian Barnes and Headmaster Simon Smith will also be addressing the audience, while the speech from Head Boy Alex Benfield and Head Girl Olivia Williams is sure to be another notable highlight.

New catering providers Holroyd Howe will be providing some fantastic refreshments following the event, which will be followed by the annual cricket match between the Rydal Dolphins and the school’s First XI.

Staff, Parents and Sixth Formers will then conclude the festivities at the eagerly anticipated Leavers’ Ball, which will once again take place at the Kinmel Manor in Abergele.

The event is one of the most prominent dates on the school calendar and is a celebration of the outstanding academic and co-curricular achievements throughout all areas of Rydal Penrhos life during the year.

There are also some surprises expected throughout the event, with Mr Smith giving the clue of the Stars Wars movie The Empire Strikes Back as a possible theme of his address.
