WOZ-ify House Competitions

With our Wizard of Oz production quickly approaching (in a week’s time to be exact) houses competed to see who could create the best Woz-ified house areas last week.

It was a close call between Rutland and Somerset, but Rutland was our champion with Somerset second and Durham third. Congratulations to the houses on a job well done! As a reward, the winners’ Woz-ified displays will be used in the foyer of the auditorium for everyone to take pictures with!
