The festive spirit was in abundance at Wisbech Grammar School on Saturday as pupils, parents and staff took part in Mrs Sloan’s Christmas Cake and Wreath Making course.
In its eighth year, Mrs Sloan, Head of Food and Nutrition at the School, served festive biscuits and tarts along with mulled wine before everyone got to work baking their Christmas cakes and making mincemeat. Participants were then treated to a delicious homemade soup and cheese scones for lunch followed by a chocolate roulade for desert.
The afternoon wreath making session was led under the expert guidance of parent, Mrs Lorraine Hodgkinson. The concentration in the room was such that you could hear a pin drop as participants worked on their festive creations!
Today, pupils and staff donned their festive jumpers for charity, Save the Children, as they were treated to a full Christmas lunch in the School’s multi-million pound refectory, Skelton Hall.
