Telling Tales

Congratulations to Jonny Jones and Jake Latham from Saffron Walden County High School, winners of our recent Ovid competition for local secondary schools. More than 1000 Year 7 students from 5 schools came up with their own take on stories from the Metamorphoses and entries included a stop animation video of Theseus and the Minotaur, a mimed retelling of King Midas and the Golden Touch, and a horror film trailer for Pandora’s Box. The winning entry, however, was a pottery medallion of Theseus and the Minotaur.
