An impressive array of German Karneval masks

Well done to all students who entered our recent Areté Learning Trust German Departments’ Karneval competition. Miss Dutton, German Teacher, said: “There were some fantastic entries from both Richmond and Stokesley Schools and we have been very impressed with how students showcased their immense creativity with a wide range of designs.”

Presented with such fabulous designs, it was a very hard task for the judges, Miss Dutton and Mrs Cheesebrough. We are delighted to announce that both of the winning designs were by students from Richmond School. Elsa, in Year 9, is in first place and wins a £15 voucher. Elsa thoroughly researched her design before producing a beautiful mask that shows real creative flair. The incorporation of leaves and feathers into the design really set it apart from the other entries. This is definitely an elegant Karneval mask that would get you noticed at any Maskenball!

Cameron, in Year 8, is placed second and wins a £10 voucher. The judges reallyliked the blue/teal colours of Cameron’s mask, as well as the sparkle in the glitter and sequins.

Elsa said: “I really enjoyed researching carnival masks and looking at all the amazing elaborate designs on the internet. I decided to use natural materials as much as possible for my design, with non-essential shops being closed. I made the face from recycled cardboard, and the head piece from branches, twigs and leaves I found in the garden. I added extra collage materials that I already had and some gold spray paint. I really enjoyed the process.

We are delighted to share a selection of the stunning entries with you and thank all the students who took part and for dedicating their time and effort to producing such creative and outstanding designs. All the students will receive a certificate in recognition of their great work.
