Students and staff at the Senior School enjoyed a bustling German Christmas Market on Tuesday lunchtime. There were lots of opportunities to purchase food and drink, as well as play games, with the aim of raising as much money as possible for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The annual Christmas Market sees many students bring in homemade goods, along with unwanted gifts to sell. As soon as the bell rang for lunchtime the stalls were flooded with eager pupils, looking to buy items from the student-run stalls.

The tempting treats on offer included delicious waffles, cupcakes, candy floss, homemade fudge, Lebkuchen, Stollen, brownies, chocolate milk and much more!

The festive atmosphere was set with German carols being played throughout the event, as the students took part in a variety of competitions such as ‘Name the Bear’ and ‘Guess the Language’ games, creating some good-spirited competition.

The Market is a really lovely school community event, organised by one of teachers, Mrs Chatburn, along with a team of willing Year 8s, Year 11s and our Charity Prefects. This year we are delighted to announce that through their efforts, and thanks to the generosity of pupils and staff, St Edward’s raised over £400 for the charity.
