Rydal Penrhos pupils deliver festive cheer in Colwyn Bay

The Year 7 group visited five Merton Place care home residents over a number of weeks

Following chats with care home residents, Rydal Penrhos students made special memory books for each resident, detailing their lives, likes and dislikes, important moments and fond memories.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, together with the pupils, presented them to each resident.

This is the latest in a series of community initiatives organised by Rydal Penrhos over the festive period, which include charity events and singing at a number of venues, including Merton Place.

Mr Cashell said: “Both I and our pupils have found the experience very rewarding and they have also written some reflections, which I am looking forward to reading.

“I would like to thank Eleri Williams and the residents of Merton Place for taking the time to speak to our pupils, and making them feel so welcome.

“We were humbled by some of the stories they told and the experience was a fantastic one. I have thanked the pupils for their work this half-term preparing the Memory books, and for the way they have handled a challenging experience – I would be glad for you to celebrate this with them too.”
