A leading figure from a global Methodist charity paid a visit to Rydal Penrhos recently.
Sarah Nuzam, a co-ordinator at World Action in Methodist Schools, visited the school on Wednesday, May 4, where she spent time at both senior and prep schools throughout the day.
After speaking in-front of a whole school chapel service, the ambassador visited the prep school, where they took part in a formal debate about whether children should chose to go to secondary school or not.
The class were split into groups to find out about the type of education available in different countries, which included thinking about Syrian refugees living in Jordan.
As a warm up activity they were also able to share their opinions about the EU Referendum; making the morning a hugely topical and relevant learning experience.
Mrs Nuzam then held a special workshop with Year 8 pupils alongside Rydal Penrhos chaplain, Rev’d Nick Sissons, where the group took part in a series of activities designed to highlight the various problems and discriminations taking place throughout the world.
Acting head Roger McDuff, said: “We would like to thank Sarah for giving up her time to visit Rydal Penrhos, and our pupils certainly found her trip very thought provoking and worthwhile.
“The school is very proud of its association with World AIMS, and the work they do in numerous areas of poverty around the world in exemplary, so it was fantastic for our pupils to learn more about it.”
