Click play to see the see the amazing creations and find out the winners.

Jack Hunt School held its annual competition to design, create and fill Christmas Hampers.  Over 80 Tutor Groups produced spectacular hampers, in a variety of designs from Christmas Trees, Reindeers, Coca-Cola lorries and of course, Father Christmas made an appearance.

This is the sixth year running that the school has organised the Hamper Competition and each Tutor Group were given just a cardboard box, donated by Arrowpak International, and then their creativity took over.  The students really enjoyed the challenge and said they enjoyed working as a team and sharing ideas.

Congratulations to the two winning Tutor Groups KSTH and CSMN who designed their hampers in the shape of a Minion from the film Despicable Me and a life-size piano.

The hampers were distributed, with the help of the winning Tutor Groups, to, Peterborough Foyer, New Haven, Peterborough Soup Kitchen and Age UK. The school would like to thank Arrowpak International for helping with the deliveries.

Kirsty Whitwood, Religious Education Teacher and Co-ordinator of the SEAL Programme, who organised the competition, said, “The students at Jack Hunt School have made us extremely proud again this year for the level of enthusiasm, empathy and generosity they have shown when producing their hampers. They have demonstrated high levels of collaboration and teamwork to work within tutor groups and produce fantastic, food and gift filled creations!”
