Com­pet­i­tive chal­lenges in Bake-Off event

The Scarborough Evening News - - SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT: LADY LUMLEY’S SCHOOL, PICKERING - by Emma Down­ing and Toby Towner, Year 10

Over the last three weeks, stu­dents at Lady Lum­ley’s have been don­ning their aprons and par­tic­i­pat­ing in the house Bake-Off com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by Miss Hammond and judged by the se­nior lead­er­ship team and the house cap­tains.

Con­tes­tants had just over an hour in each round to make a bis­cuit based cre­ation. The com­pe­ti­tion has been fierce, re­sult­ing in some im­pres­sive cre­ations and many stu­dents were keen to par­tic­i­pate hav­ing been in­spired by the pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion se­ries The Great Bri­tish Bake-off.

The school house sys­tem, un­der the lead­er­ship of Miss Hammond, was re-launched last year and has been a great suc­cess with var­i­ous events de­vised to en­cour­age greater in­ter­est and par­tic­i­pa­tion by a wider range of stu­dents.

Reg­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude house chess club, X-Box Kinect com­pe­ti­tions, keep­yup chal­lenges and of course the Bake-Off.

Pic­tures show, top, the Bake-Off con­tes­tants and, above, judg­ing some of the cre­ative bakes.
