Epiphany Celebrations

This year, our return to College following the Christmas break fell on the 6th January, which coincided perfectly with Twelfth Night, which marks the coming of the Epiphany and sees the French celebration of la Fête des rois. During this celebration, it is traditional to eat a galette des rois, created to honour the three kings who travelled thousands of miles to visit the baby Jesus in Bethlehem.

During their French lesson, some lucky year 9 pupils were given the opportunity to sample this delicacy of puff pastry layers with a filling of almond cream in which a figure or feve has been hidden. Whoever finds it becomes the King or Queen for the day and the honour this year fell upon Heidi, who was delighted to find the feve in the slice of pastry she had chosen!
