Eggstravaganza winners

While all the entries were wonderful in their own way, the fact that Eggstravaganza was a competition means there had to be some winners. It was genuinely difficult to choose these winners but, after some deliberation, we settled on these great entries below. Well done to all who entered.

Eggstravaganza

There were some wonderfully creative entries to the school egg decorating competition today. It was great to see how many people showed their artistic skills. It was also excellent to have so many parents come to view the various creations.

In case you weren’t able to make it, here is a short video showing a range of the eggs…

International Day of Happiness

It was established by the United Nations General Assembly on 28 June 2012, and this year it aims to create a global day of happiness where everyone faces the challenges we face with a smile. Simply put, try to make someone smile today by doing something nice. Comfort a friend in distress, design a happiness card for someone you haven’t talked to before or poster to display on the wall. Whatever you do today, try to do it with a smile. A smile and a kind word will always make someone happy!

Eggstravaganza competition – Wednesday 25th March

20150319-100851.jpg
We are holding a school wide competition for you to decorate an egg in as imaginative/funny/striking a way as possible.

What you need to know

  1. You must use at least one hard boiled chicken’s egg (don’t use more than 4 eggs please – they are expensive).
  2. If you wish to make a background in which to place your egg(s), it must be no larger than a shoebox.
  3. You may give your design an egg-related theme and title (e.g. Eggs Factor, The L-egg-o Movie, The Incredible Yolk…)
  4. You must have your name and class displayed clearly on your entry.
  5. Your entry must be brought to school on the morning of Wednesday 25th March 2015 (not before as we will not be able to store them safely)
  6. Winning entries will be displayed in the Small Hall on Wednesday afternoon and prizes will be awarded.
  7. Entries you wish to keep must be taken home on Wednesday evening (we have to dispose of other entries to make sure the school doesn’t start to smell…)

Note: This competition is primarily for children. However, we would love to run a grown up category so tell your parents to get cracking too!
