Charity work

Rydal Penrhos Preparatory School has a strong reputation for its efforts to raise funds for charity. Throughout the year, a number of activities are organised to support this. Children and parents are kept up-to-date through letters and flyers. We thank you all for your support on these occasions.

Eco Committee

Group activities for the Eco Club began almost three years ago and include:

  • Establishing an Eco Committee
  • Managing waste paper in the Prep School
  • Monitoring use of lights, water and computers
  • Establishing school garden and composting
  • Tree planting
  • Supporting annual ‘Walk to School’ Week
  • Participating in ‘Grow your own’ and ‘Let’s Grow’ competitions
  • Operating a beach clean-up at Colwyn Bay
  • Fund raising to support the school garden project
  • Focused School Assemblies

The group comprises children from each year, staff representatives, parents and governors. Appointed committee posts are held by children who are elected by their peers within the group. Elections are held every twelve months at the start of the new school year. Regular meetings are held at the school where plans are made by the children for forthcoming projects and activities.


The computer club is held on a Monday night for children from Reception and Year 1. The club runs from 3.45pm – 4.30pm. It is based in the library where we have 13 computers and the children mainly play on sites like CBeebies, Playhouse Disney, Tizzy’s First Tools. This helps them to gain further computer skills and hand-eye coordination.
