MFL Bake-off!

Students rise to the challenge of MFL Bake-off Competition

We were so excited to see the return of our fabulous MFL Bake-off Competition at the start of this week. The competition celebrates the European Day of Languages and is open to all students and staff who wish to submit a cake with an MFL inspired theme! This year saw a huge range of lovely cakes with a wonderful array of flavours, colours and representation of different cultures. 

We were joined by Mr Simpson and Ms Mountfield (our very own Paul and Prue) who acted as excellent judges. Following the competition, a cake sale was then held which consisted of all the entries and monies raised will go towards a sign language/communications charity. 

Thank you to all entrants for the time and effort you put into your creations, and special thanks to our MFL Prefects for their support for this event.
