Mrs Ortega-Izquierdo handed out prizes for her Day of the Dead Competition at lunchtime on Thursday 14th November. Students were challenged to create an altar for a famous deceased Hispanic person for El Día de los Muertos, held on 1st and 2nd November. Students got creative, using a variety of materials. They also had to research and learn as the altars needed to include the traditional items of El Día de los Muertos altar and any others they felt appropriate. We were proud to see so many entries to the competition, all of them well-researched, colourful and unique.
All participants were treated to a small celebration and staff members were invited to see the intricate work created. The altars had been placed on display around the classroom. All students received certificates but special prizes went to certain winners. Well done to Zachary Watson who won first place and Jaden Edusei and Isaac Turner who came second and third place respectively.
