Identity of Newport Teacher in Sparkly Unicorn suit revealed!

Written by on March 15, 2019

The person inside the Sparkle the Unicorn suit was finally revealed at a special school assembly at the Haberdashers’ Adams School in the town last week.

Emma Otero Salgado, a chemistry teacher and local gymnastics coast, revealed she is Sparkle the Unicorn and will be raising funds for the charity VICTA who support young adults with vision loss.  She will be running the London Marathon next month, but has also worked hard with a group of students from Haberdashers’ Adams to organise “Newport’s Got Talent” which will showcase the talents of local pupils in Newport.

Emma popped into Nova FM this week, along with student Grace Couls, to let us know what’s been happening over the last couple of weeks. You can listen to her interview with our Drivetime presenter, Dean Churm, here:


The Newport’s Got Talent Event will be held at the Haberdashers’ Adams School on Saturday 16 March at 7pm. Further information is available here.
