A group of talented Preparatory School writers have achieved recognition in a Rotary Club competition.
As part of the Rotary International’s Young Writer competition, Rydal Penrhos pupils were asked to write a short piece about what they loved about the world, and four of the school’s writers achieved both regional and district success in the competition.
After winning the Colwyn Bay regional heat, Year 6 pupil Ethan Bytheway’s piece was put forward for the district round, where he received runner up in the junior category for his efforts.
In addition to this success, James Copeland received runner up in the regional event, while Chay Bonnington and Noah Langford were both given highly commended certificates.
Rydal Penrhos welcomed a number of Rotary Club of Colwyn Bay officials, including President Donald Saunders on Friday, May 13, where the four pupils received their awards.
Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “This is a fantastic achievement from all four of our pupils, and I would like to congratulate them on continuing the school’s history of success in the competition.
“For Ethan’s work to be recognised at a district level showed just how good his piece was, and all four of our young writers that achieved recognition can be very proud of their achievements.
“It was also great to welcome members of the Rotray Club of Colwyn Bay to Rydal Penrhos, and we hope to see them back here next year to celebrate more of our success.”
