As part of a special series of summer features, we turn our attention to our Year 6 pupils as we reflect on their accomplishments and get the perspective of Prep School Head Alison Hind.
The latest instalment of Leavers’ Focus features Harry Fardoe:
There is not much that Harry does excel at and this ensured an extremely smooth transition into the Rydal Penrhos community as a Year 5 pupil last year.
He has visibly grown in confidence and maturity and thrived during his final year of Prep School, something that was evident with his sterling efforts as Snowdon House Captain, steering the group to a large number of competition successes during a phenomenal run of results.
Harry is a talented sportsman who played a contributing factor in Rydal Penrhos retaining the Cooper Cup against Colwyn Bay Rugby Club for the fourth year in succession, with his Athletics and Cross-Country talents coming to the fore at regional and national events.
Whether it be on stage at Café Dolphin or Aladdin, the Snowdon Summit Walk or the Llanrug Residential trip, Harry has not only embraced each opportunity afforded to him at Rydal Penrhos, but really enjoyed and enhanced his overall developed by throwing himself into every activity no matter how tough.
The Prefect was acknowledged for his excellent achievements with the Athletics Cup and Cross Country Prize from Rydal Penrhos’ annual Prep School Speech Day event on Friday, July 6.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Harry joined is in Year 5 and started out as a quiet boy, what happened to him?
“Understated, it has been lovely for us to see Harry grow and grow in confidence and enjoy every aspect of school life – it feels as though he’s been in the school forever.
“He lives and breathes the opportunities that come his way and simply enjoys life and is always smiling. A truly charming member of the year group.”
