A number of Preparatory School pupils received praise for their commitment towards a nationwide recycling initiative.
Some of Rydal Penrhos’ eco-warriors decided to lend their support to the Big Battery Hunt, which is a competition to collect as many used batteries as possible in the hope of securing a prize.
Although the Prep School contingent did not secure the winning total, they still managed to collect almost 20,000 batteries as a result of their efforts, with Science teacher Suzanne Wareing on hand to present certificates to those who had brought in the biggest amount.
Senior Prefect Fflur Pierce, Year 5 pupil Nathan Richards, together with the brother duo of Head Boy Ellis and Charlie Lister-Brookes, all received recognition after contributing a large portion of the overall total from a Rydal Penrhos perspective.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “We were thrilled to make a contribution to this year’s Big Battery Hunt, which saw those involved demonstrate the sort of drive and willingness to succeed that is a common trait across all departments and subjects here at Rydal Penrhos.”
Young people in schools across the UK are encouraged to think about the importance of recycling during the Big Battery Hunt, and then challenged to collect as many used batteries as they can.
The initiative is currently aimed at Primary aged children and raised more than four million batteries last year.
