YOUNGSTERS from across the area have been busy celebrating Easter.

At Brooke Priory School pupils were busy making bonnets for their annual parade.

Winners were chosen from each year group, with each receiving an Easter egg.

The morning raised £120 for the Day Trust Fund, which was set up to help Kimberley, 15, and Adam Day, 14, following the deaths of their parents Toby and Samantha and their sister Genevieve.

More than 40 pupils at Great Casterton Primary school decorated eggs to look like their favourite characters from fiction.

Teacher Catherine Gardiner said: “We were delighted to receive so many entries. The pupils have put a great deal of time, effort and imagination into their characters.”

At Malcolm Sargent Primary School, in Stamford, pupils competed in their annual decorated egg competition, with an Olympics theme.

Business manager Liz Town said: “The children created some marvellous eggs with a wide range of inspirational ideas.”

At the Charles Read Academy, in Corby Glen, the arrival of Easter was marked with the hatching of their first chick from the school’s incubator.

A new Growing Club has started at the school where pupils will be able to care for the chick.

New chicks have also hatched at Ryhall Primary School where the pupils have been caring for the ten new arrivals.

School secretary Dianne Jibb said: “They’ve loved it, especially the younger ones.”
