Juniors at Competitions Day

Five boys represented the Junior Section at the Battalion Competition's Day held at Fleet Methodist Church. The boys competed well in all the events, winning the Singing competition and finishing as runners-up in both the Inspection and Art categories. Overall they finished second on the day which was a great reward for their efforts. The boys' success also earned valuable points for the Company in this year's Battalion Trophy competition.
The Juniors performed their Zacchaeus Play and Song again at the Display Night held at Alton Methodist Church. They also showed off their Figure Marching routine to the parents and guests on the evening. Display Night is also the occasion when the Third Year Junior boys move on the the Company Section and the oldest Anchor Boys join us in Juniors. So this year, William and Tom moved on to Company, whilst Theo and William joined Juniors. We wish to thank William and Tom for the great fun and effort they put into being Juniors during all activities including worship, achievements, craft, games and sport. They have been role models for the younger boys and shown great commitment to Juniors; the Company have gained two excellent new members. We welcome Theo and William to The Juniors with all their enthusiasm and energy.
With Display Night behind us, we are now into our Summer Programme of activities. We began with an Outdoor Games evening on The Butts, playing non-stop cricket, football and French cricket. Over the coming weeks The Juniors will be Den Building at Alice Holt, learning Circus Skills and having Board Games and Art evenings at the church. They will also be competing at the Battalion Sports Day at The Spectrum in Guildford on 25th June when the Battalion Trophy will be awarded.
