Easter Egg Competition

Easter Egg Competition

School was filled with creative artworks this week as we hosted our annual Easter Egg competition. The judges were blown away by the creativity and skill on display. Themes ranged from videogames and rock bands through to TV shows and more religious themes. Each class chose three winners and our overall winners for creativity were a spring garden complete with its own story (joint runner-up), an ingenious Easter box with a religious theme (joint runner-up) and the amazing St Lawrence’s Easter Fare, complete with lolly-stick Ferris wheel and fairy lights.

Well done to everyone who took part! Have a peaceful and prayerful Easter and we’ll look forward to seeing you for the summer term.
