Latest news from the archives
Rydal Penrhos has deposited much of its film material with the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales in Aberystwyth. The material will be restored; copies will be given to Rydal Penrhos and the general public will have access to it in Aberystwyth. Most of the whole school photographs of both schools are now on display in school, and a Rydal Penrhos Archives website is being developed. The school has gratefully received some accessions during the last two years; however, there are still gaps in our archives. Here are some items that are missing: most recent Penrhos uniform; Penrhos Rangers uniform; Rydal OTC and Scout
uniforms; the following issues of school magazines: all Penrhos magazines before1904, 1920 July and December, 1921 March and July, 1922 March and December, 1925 July, 1926 March, 1927 July and December, 1928 March, 1930 July and December, 1941-1946, 1950, 1968, 1970, 1975-1980.
If you have any of these items (or anything else relating to the school’s history including junior schools) and are happy to donate them to us, we would love to hear from you. Very many thanks to all who have already donated items.
