Alton Webteam: April 2016
Our Easter term was busy with various activities. The Boys made Easter Gardens with a "peg" figure representing Mary and a large stone for the tomb. Keith came along and went through the story of Easter week with the Juniors and Anchors and answered questions such as "why is it Good Friday when it really was a Bad day?"
Then of course we had to make the usual Easter cakes and have our Easter egg decorating competition. Always good fun!
Now that we are back after what seems like a long break we are straight into rehearsing for the Annual Display and Inspection on May 6th starting at 7pm. This year we are holding this event in the church and serving refreshments afterwards. Do come along and see what we get up to during the year!
After the Display we begin our Summer programme and any Boy is welcome to come along to the various activities which are in the magazine and on the website.
