Posted by on Dec 18, 2013 in News | No Comments

Two Lantern making workshops took place during the second half of the Autumn Term as part of the preparations for the Saltash town Christmas Festival. Organised by International Coordinator, Vicky Higgs, the first one took place on the morning of Saturday 23rd November and involved making fish lanterns. The second one took place after school on Wednesday 4th December and was designed to provide an opportunity for services families to create a Dove of Peace.

The lanterns were paraded from the Guildhall to the top of Fore Street in Saltash on the evening  of Saturday 7th December, preceding a firework display which concluded a day of Christmas themed activities.

International Coordinator, Vicky Higgs, said, ‘It was great to see the students being creative and coming together with their families to create the lanterns. The amazing sense of community at the parade was an excellent opportunity for the students to show off their creations.’
