Ry­dal pupils’ events and suc­cess

North Wales Weekly News - - WRITTEN BY YOU -

A PAIR of Ry­dal Penrhos pupils achieved phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess at a golf event in Scot­land.

Louisa We­ber, aged 15, and Wil­son Rey­han, 18, came away with the Team Nett ti­tle at the ISGA Scot­tish Open, held at the Kings Acre Golf Club, Midlothian.

Ger­man Year 11 pupil Louisa also claimed in­di­vid­ual hon­ours, se­cur­ing the Over­all Nett com­pe­ti­tion and the Girl’s Nett/Gross tro­phy.

Ian Robert­son, golf co-or­di­na­tor at Ry­dal Penrhos, said: “This was a very strong field of com­peti­tors so for the team to per­form as they did was a tes­ta­ment to them and they should be con­grat­u­lated. Louisa in par­tic­u­lar, was su­perb. She played sen­sa­tion­ally well through­out the day and got her re­wards, and I’m sure all their suc­cess made the long jour­ney home a lit­tle shorter.”

Louisa took home the in­di­vid­ual nett ti­tle af­ter shoot­ing a 77 on the day, a score that was brought down to 62 in ac­cor­dance with her hand­i­cap. She took the crown by four shots, beat­ing in­di­vid­ual gross win­ner Cameron Blair of Loretto into sec­ond place.

Amer­i­can Wil­son carded an 81 score for his 18-holes, which gave the pair an over­all nett to­tal of 134 - enough to take the Over­all Nett ti­tle from Loretto B, who fin­ished one shot back in sec­ond place.

Di­rec­tor of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “To come away from any tour­na­ment with a win­ners’ tro­phy is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment, but to per­form as they did so far from home re­ally is a su­perb ef­fort. We are work­ing hard at Ry­dal Penrhos to give tal­ented golfers ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to im­prove on their craft.” PUPILS from two North Wales schools vis­ited Ry­dal Penrhos as part of Lan­guages Week.

Dozens of chil­dren from Ys­gol Pen-y-Bryn in Col­wyn Bay and Fairholme Prepra­tory School in St As­aph de­scended on Ry­dal for a host of ac­tiv­i­ties as part of the ini­tia­tive, which was be­ing hosted by head of lan­guages Peter Lav­ery on Tues­day, Septem­ber 25.

He said: “It is re­ally im­por­tant for chil­dren to learn just how im­por­tant learn­ing an ad­di­tional lan­guage can be for them later in life.

“We are very lucky here at Ry­dal Penrhos to have peo­ple from a num­ber of dif­fer­ent coun­tries, and we have a ded­i­cated team of staff that are al­ways on hand should you wish to try and learn some­thing new.

“Age re­ally is no bar­rier when it comes to learn­ing a new lan­guage.”

Af­ter a se­ries of ac­tiv­i­ties in the Fer­gu­son Cen­tre and Sports Hall, the chil­dren were then joined by pupils from Ry­dal and treated to a French-speak­ing per­for­mance from drama group Fly­ing Theatre en­ti­tled “The Tour de France” to fin­ish off the day.

The pupils thor­oughly en­joyed the per­for­mance by the York­shire-based group, and it even in­cluded a soak­ing with a per­former mis­tak­ing the au­di­ence for flow­ers.
