'New year, new you' - Year 7 have ancient makeovers!
20 January 2017
This week at Classics Club some Year 7 girls took part in a workshop on ancient Roman and Egyptian make up.
After looking at Cleopatra as our ultimate make up role model, we talked about some of the ways Roman, Greek and Egyptian women would have painted their faces and some more alternative beauty treatments of the time. We let the girls loose with eyeliner, white powder, blush and the brightest eye shadow we could find to let them follow the Cleopatra model. The girls loved every minute of the workshop, with varying degrees of flamboyance with the eyeliner!
Classics Club is just one of the extracurricular activities open to Senior girls at lunchtimes. Read the separate article to see the new Spring Term timetable.
