An area of the College transformed into an ‘Egyptian Arena’ for the Year 7 cohort on Wednesday. The Four Great Pharaohs had their subjects bowing to the Gods for prosperity and good fortune.

The students dressed for the occasion in ancient Egyptian clothing and presented their artefacts to the ‘Pharaohs’ before displaying them in the ‘Museum of Antiquities’.

The standard of models was very high this year and every student put a lot of creative thought into these and their costume designs.

The Ancient Egyptian games of Mehen, Senet, the clay amulets stamped with hieroglyphs, viewing the podcast on how technology today is unlocking the mysteries of mummies and the taste of Egyptian food samples were enjoyed by all.

A big ‘thank you’ to all staff who provided that ‘extra touch’ to ensure the day was a huge success.
