Alton Webteam: September 2015
We were very pleased to have some new Boys coming on our first night and by the time you read this I am hoping to have seven Boys on the books.
Our first night had the story of the Good Samaritan as a theme and after the story was read and talked about the Boys revelled in acting out! Funnily enough they were all very keen to be the robbers with the daggers! Little Oliver played his part well as the victim; he confessed in a whisper that he had been holding his breath to appear dead! We may well be acting this out at this year's Display so come and see our budding actors in May!
Anchor Boys welcome any Boy of school years 1, 2 or 3 please let me know if you hear of any interested Boys.
