Sofía Arrabal Gómez

sofiaCongratulations to Sofía Arrabal Gómez of Y7D for winning an international design competition run by Aardman Animations in England.


Aardman Animations produce the fantastic Wallace and Gromit and the very famous Shaun the Sheep animation series. The competition was to design a new jumper for Shaun the Sheep to celebrate his 25th anniversary.

All Y7 students participated and Sofía´s design was chosen amongst hundreds of others as the winning design. Her colourful and bright work was made into a life size sculpture of Shaun the Sheep, which has since been auctioned to raise funds for charity. The sculpture raised over £7000 to help provide care for babies and children at Bristol Children's Hospital.

What a fantastic achievement by Sofia to be part of this and as a special prize she's received a Shaun the Sheep figurine featuring her design as well as some other Shaun the Sheep prizes.

As a school we are very proud of Sofia and all Y7 students who participated in the competition. We hope that Shaun the Sheep will live on in children's hearts for many more years to come!
