Michael Neophytou Competition 2020

Michael Neophytou 2000 - 2007Around this time each year, Forefield Junior School remembers former pupil Michael Neophytou, who died in 2007 following a tragic accident in his garden. As we approach Michael's birthday (7th May), we launch our annual fun competition.

This year, we are experiencing different times as a community, yet we are not going to forget Michael’s Day. His family wishes for his memory to surge you all on with a 2020 'Create a SUPERHERO’ challenge!

Using recycling materials from home, (e.g. toilet rolls, boxes, paper, plastic bottles, cloth, etc.) we would like you to create your very own superhero. Think about what superpowers or special skills your hero would possess. What would they wear and what accessories would they use?

Once you have made your model, take photographs - front and back - and email them, along with your name and class, to [email]. The closing date for entries is Friday 1st May.

For more information and inspiration, download this colourful pdf.

Remember, we can all be heroes by doing our best to help others. Who are your heroes and to whom can you be a hero today?

Good Luck!
