Miss Bailey and Mrs Horridge asked students to research and design their card using a variety of materials, from paint to fabric, and that all entries were submitted in French or the language of the country featured.

The brief required originality in the Christmas card design as well as accuracy of language and content. The designs celebrated the traditions and languages of countries including Italy, Greece, Egypt, Germany and Spain.  

Categories for winners recognised creativity, cultural interest and research in students’ designs.
