A leading figure in the Methodist community visited Rydal Penrhos recently.
Rachel Lampard MBE, who is the current Vice-President of the Methodist Conference, spent time at the school on Thursday, March 23 where she spoke with pupils across a number of age groups.
The Methodist Church elects two people each year as President and Vice-President to represent the Church and to travel around the country visiting Methodist churches and institutions.
Ms Lampard, who chairs the Churches’ Joint Public Issues Group and who was awarded an MBE for her work on gambling regulation, spoke in chapel about the current plight of refugees.
Following the address, she met with all of Year 6 at the Prep School, where they explored the theme of justice and what makes for a fairer world.
Finally Ms Lampard spoke to all Year 10 about what a post-Brexit society should look like.
Rev’d Nick Sissons, Chaplain at Rydal Penrhos, said: “It was a great privilege to have the Vice-President at school and I was particularly pleased with the way the pupils engaged with her and shared her passion for issues such as justice and democracy, which are so central to our society.”
