Congratulations to Marta and her Mother!
The Mother of Marta Alvarez Sanduende in Year 6 received a fantastic gift from her daughter for Mother´s day this year – specially designed jewelry for her by her daughter!
´Design a jewel for your Mother for Mother´s Day´ is organised by Colexio Oficial de Xoialia de Galicia. Students from Year 4 to 6 in our college carefully and lovingly designed an item of jewelry for their Mothers as part of this competition in the hope that if they are a winner, they could have their jewelry made for the Mother in time for Mother´s Day. This is the second year we have entered the competiton, in 2017 Margarita (now in 8A) was able to delight her Mother with a jewelry gift too!
The designs by all of our students were of a very high standard and each student thought carefully about their Mother´s tastes and what they appreciated most about their Mother´s. Many might have been secretly asking their Mother´s about their favourite precious stones or colours or investigating their Mother´s current jewel tastes at home. There were over 10, 000 entries to this national competition, 80 finalists were selected and from them only 12 winners of different ages would have their designs made by professional jewelers.
We are delighted that Marta in 6A was selected as a finalist and went to the awards ceremony on Friday 4rd May 2019, in the Auditorium of the CGAC, in Santiago de Compostela, and so proud that she won her age group and was able to have her jewelry made by a professional designer to gift to her Mother. Congratulations!
