The January House Event took place on Tuesday 31st January. This event was a twist on the Great British Bake-off and was announced as The Loreto Ice-Off Challenge. Each House Team had to ice cup-cakes incorporating house designs symbolic to their house such as colour, letter or animal. Tensions rose as the Assembly Hall filled with spectators eager to watch their House take the win. Each house team had a rep from each class ready to put their creativity to the test. The time limit was fifteen minutes. While icing was ongoing, the House Committee entertained the crowd with music, dancing and interviews with the participants.
When the countdown hit zero a look of awe and anticipation covered the faces of every house member. Who would take the win ……. Ms. McCaul and Ms. Kavanagh, the Home Economics Department Judges, along with our Head Girl Grace Given, struggled to crown a winner due to the high standard presented. Finally a decision was made and the Macaw “Pink Ladies” took the title of Ice-Off Champions 2017.
It was clear to all that the Loreto Ice-Off was a very successful and high-spirited event and we would like to thank Ms. McCaul for organising it.
