To mark the European Day of Languages last Thursday, students took part in a baking competition with a distinctly international flavour.
Judging the contest were teachers, Mr Butler and Mrs Lowden, who found the task quite a challenge due to the high standard of entries this year.
Hannah Cartman, from Year 8, was announced as the winner with her Spanish flag cake that, when cut, revealed red and yellow coloured sponge inside.
Lily Mae Childs (Year 8) took second place and Lily-May Proctor (Year 7) was third. Plus, there was a special mention to Anna Psaras from Year 8, whose cake was highly commended.
Other fantastic entries came from Isabel Dodd (Year 8), Tom Lowe (Year 10), Nathan Ford (Year 7), Harley Rowson (Year 7), Emma Leraistre-Hutun (Year 8), Will Johnson (Year 7), Luca Simpson (Year 7), Archie Watson (Year 7), Chloe Tyler (Year 7), and Eti Dubief (Year 7).
Languages teacher, Mrs Porter, comments: “We are so grateful to all the students, parents and staff who made such a lot of effort.”
“The money raised from selling the cakes will go towards funding two foreign language plays to be performed in school by theatre company, Onnatti Productions – a unique educational opportunity for students from Years 7 to 9.”
