Sixth Form pupils at Rydal Penrhos have been rewarded for their tremendous application throughout the winter term with special awards.
Twenty hard-working senior pupils at the school were chosen to receive Effort and Attainment Prizes after impressing considerably throughout, and each received their certificate and a generous round of applause at Rydal Penrhos’ Prizegiving prior to the Christmas break.
Eddie Farrell, Aisha Jidda and Bijou Rajagopal were presented with Attainment Prizes as a result of their outstanding efforts throughout the term across all subjects they have chosen at A-level from Year 12.
A plethora also secured Effort Prizes due to their ongoing commitment, with Raha Aminnejad, Tallulah Batley, Holly Battersby, Millie Collins, Ethan Davies, Arend Franssens, Niamh Hall, Barooj Maqsood, Brona Richardson and Amy Yue all securing the distinction.
Malina Keil took home the Attainment Prize from the Year 13 International Baccalaureate contingent, and Phillip Novak was also recognised for his exceptional determination and application with an Effort Prize.
Rounding off the Sixth Form successes were Imogen Camp and Head Girl Gowri Pradeep, who claimed Attainment Prizes from the Year 13 A-level group, and there was further cause for celebration as Jenny Blackman, Carol Chen and Head Boy Nick Fiorita came away with Effort Prizes.
Director of Studies Sally Harding, said: “Our Sixth Formers are a fine example to younger members of the Rydal Penrhos community, displaying the sort of attitude and leadership that has brought some significant success both academically and from a co-curricular perspective.
“Hopefully this is something that can continue long into the future and I would like to congratulate those that were deservedly awarded Academic Attainment and Effort Prizes.”
