Selfless staff and pupils at Rydal Penrhos took part in a Community Action Day as part of an ongoing initiative.

As part of the school’s Activity Week, pupils from across all age groups went out to help in the local area on a variety of projects, which focussed on a number of prominent sites around Colwyn Bay.

Pupils and staff also spent a significant amount of cleaning up a nearby church graveyard, something which resulted in a complete transformation of graves that had been lift to ruin.

Woodland area close to Rydal Penrhos was also given a makeover as part of the programme, which is an annual event during the last week of the academic year.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “It was another extremely successful Community Action Day, and I would like to thank all pupils and staff involved for their efforts.

“We are very proud of our association with the Colwyn Bay and North Wales community, and events like this allow us to give something back, and in relation to the graveyard, members of the public using the area can see the benefit of the clean-up.

“Activity Week is a great way for a pupils to end what has been another successful academic year, and it is an initiative that I hope will continue long into the future.”

During the week-long event pupils took part in a camping trip, taking on the daunting Zip World ride, while also embarking on work experience opportunities throughout the region and abroad.
