Alton Webteam: January 2018
Well done to the boys (and staff!) for delivering over 1200 Christmas cards using our stamps. It is both a valuable community service and a not a bad earner for us!
Hot off the press, we have started our new year with a second place in the Battalion chess tournament, congratulations to the four boys that took part.
Next up is the orienteering competition... which involves our boys running about in the woods looking for markers, against the clock...what could possibly go wrong?!
We have 2 of our senior boys starting their Queens badge, the highest award in Brigade, and 2 going on a residential weekend to complete theirs...fingers crossed for them all.
Once we reach half term we will be finishing the interest classes and starting to learn the routines for our "Day of Action". This involves a variety of drill competitions, scripture quiz and superstar type gym tests.
But that's after half term, and practice expeditions, and bike rides, and interest class trips....
