Before the February half-term break, Year 7 were challenged to a British Values competition.  Miss D'Auria and her Year Team were delighted by the quality of the entries and deliberated over the winners for some time.  However, we could only choose one winning entry from each tutor group and one overall winner. 

7DJ's winners were Grace W, Ellie Mae M and Ella S for their clever booklet which opened out into different sections.

For 7SK, Bea SJW's acrostic poem won for its thoughtfulness and creativity.

7AMW's winner was Elise D, who baked and decorated a cake with the British Values.

7RM's winner was Arianne C for her detailed PowerPoint presentation.

Finally, 7KA's winners were Izzy B and Indah K for their clever video, which involved members of their family. 

Izzy and Indah were chosen as the overall winners of the competition for thinking outside the box, being creative and thoughtful in the planning of their video.
