Student Creativity and Easter Traditions – The Egg Decorating Competition

By Mrs. Amanda Freer, Junior School Headteacher

As well as learning about the importance of the Easter story, in the Junior School we also learn about the different Easter traditions. Indeed, we have a few traditions of our own, the Easter egg hunt being one of the most popular! 

The pupils also thoroughly enjoy our Easter egg decorating competition. I am always impressed by the pupils’ creativity. They are given a polystyrene egg and a small square of cardboard and a morning to complete the task. Feathers, googly eyes, felt, pipe cleaners, sequins and all manner of fabrics and coloured card are made available and we let the pupils loose on them… and they did not disappoint!

The Difficult Task of Judging….

Madame Jackson had the very difficult task of judging the entries, a winner from each form was to be chosen. After a very long period of deliberation, Mme Jackson chose Anya’s colourful all seeing flowers for the Form 1 prize. Form 2’s winner was a beautiful chick by Olivia. Bonnie was the winner in Form 3 with gorgeous little creatures including a worm! Form 4 proved the most difficult to judge, Evie’s fabulous turtle won with Bertie’s amazing Stevie Wonder a close second. Thank you to Mme Jackson for judging, I know how difficult it was!

The prizes were awarded after the Spring Concert with the proud winners congratulated on stage. The lucky winners were given a voucher to spend in the Betsy and Bo sweet shop in Staithes. Lucky things! 

Congratulations not just to the worthy winners but to all of the pupils who produced some truly eggseptional designs!
