A talented vocalist at Rydal Penrhos will be showcasing her talent in front of a national television audience in the Far East later this month.

Amy Yue, a Lower Sixth Form pupil at the school, has been selected to sing as part of the Spring Gala Festival on Thursday, January 17, which is part of the production for their Chinese New Year celebrations.

The 17-year-old boarding pupil’s performance will be televised nationally as part of the exceptional celebrations, which will officially bring in The Year of the Pig.

This is the latest in a series of impressive accolades for the pupil, who joined Rydal Penrhos as a Year 10 pupil in 2016 and has thrived under the guidance and support of dedicated staff at the school.

She has contributed significantly to the various community and school concerts put on by Director of Music Pete Williams and his team throughout the academic year, in addition to appearing on stage during the recent RPS Showstoppers extravaganza that attracted more than 1,000 audience members over a three-night period last spring.

Mr Williams, said:  “This is an incredible honour for Amy and one that we are enormously proud of here at Rydal Penrhos.

“She has an incredible voice and to have the chance to show this off in front of what is expected to be a vast television audience is going to be another hugely positive step in her overall development.”

Chinese New Year is one of the world's most prominent and celebrated festivals, and is the cause of the largest annual mass human migration in the world.
