The Christmas Concert marked the start of the Christmas period at Great Baddow High School, featuring both music and drama performances from the Creative Arts Department. It included Christmas readings and hymns to get our Great Baddow community in the festive spirit. Photos from the evening can be found on our School Gallery here.

This week also saw the results of the excellent Christmas Card Competition with the winning design by Emily B (7A1) and some of the outstanding entrants displayed as part of our superb Christmas Carol Concert at Chelmsford Cathedral.

Wednesday was our annual Christmas lunch with so many of our students taking advantage of the full turkey roast and Christmas pudding on offer.  A delicious time was had by all.

Thursday we took part in the annual Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children and many of our staff and students looked resplendent in their festive knitwear.

Plus it was the day we held the ever-popular Great Baddow Bake Off. Our budding bakers, both students and staff, were busy mixing, icing and glazing their creations and both judges and students enjoyed a veritable feast of cake and various pastries which raised a further £130 for charity. 

The winning cakes, selected by the Headteacher were:

  • Anais C - 1st place for her representation of the fantasy genre.
  • Aaron P - 2nd place for his representation of the animal genre.
  • Isabella G, 3rd place for her representation of the fantasy genre.

The student vote winners were:

  • 1st  Josh H & Oscar T for their joint Christmas tree cake.
  • 2nd Anais C for her treasure chest cake.
  • 3rd Aaron P with his 3 tier animal cake.

Thank you to all the students and staff that have been involved in the array of Christmas activities taking place this week and congratulations to the winners of the House Competitions that have been taken place.
