The Humanities faculty recently ran a competition for staff and students to decorate hardboiled eggs and place them in an historical, geographical or religious setting.
The competition was designed to give students the opportunity to further explore the topics they have studied in their lessons or to research their own subjects for inspiration.
The response to the competition was fantastic, with a large number of students submitting highly creative and visually stunning entries either individually or as part of a group.
History teacher Jess Aitken commented: ‘We were expecting exciting things, but the designs the students have come up with are really, really impressive and far surpass our expectations. It was great to see so many students and staff getting involved in a fun activity at the end of another busy term. Thank you to everyone who took part.’
