As part of their independent learning, German students at Paston Sixth Form College were asked to produce posters, articles and podcasts on a variety of different topics. The project was run as a competition, and it was Year 12 student Harriet Bradnock who handed in the winning contribution: a beautifully designed poster advertising the German City of Cologne and its various tourist attractions.
Impressed by the outstanding quality of the work (and knowing that the student was heading to Germany to visit the Christmas markets), Harriet’s teacher got in touch with the Tourist Information Office of Cologne to ask them if they were willing to sponsor a little prize, and indeed they were more than willing to help. Having received a copy of the poster, they decided not only to surprise Harriet with a small gift but also asked for the poster to be published in ‘Stadt Intern’, Cologne’s magazine for the city’s employees and their families.
Harriet and her family visited Cologne over the Christmas period, where Harriet was presented with a range of gifts relating to Cologne from the Tourist Information Office.
Harriet said “her family enjoyed the visit to Cologne, especially the historic buildings, and meeting the local people who were extremely friendly and welcoming.”
Well done, Harriet!
