Easter eggs and bonnets brighten St Columba’s
ST COLUMBA’S Primary School, Fort William, held its annual Easter egg and bonnet competition last Friday.
Sister Diane Moore, from St John’s Church, and parishioner Claire MacDonald were the judges this year and had a difficult job picking the winners.
Children from nursery to primary seven were challenged to decorate eggs or create Easter bonnets at home.
A school spokesperson said: ‘The chil- dren came up with some lovely ideas. The entries were of a very high standard and the children did a fantastic job creating unusual entries. One did the Jacobite steam train with egg people, another did the Alice in Wonderland tea party. Some created stones with the boiled eggs to create Jesus’ tomb.’
There were 14 winners on the day and some of the work will be showcased in St John’s Church. Winners: Nursery, Rubyn Lopez; P1, Taylor Lauder; P2, Duncan MacFarlane; P3, Asher Johnston; P4, Bradley Monk; P5, Lexi Lauder; P6, Bella Macfarlane and P7, Sophie Lopez.
Easter bunny prizes went to: Élize Lopez, Natalie Byrne, Aaron MacLellan and Callum MacLean. The Sister Diane prize went to Gracie Henderson and Father Roddy’s prize was won by Darcy Bradley. For more photographs visit www.lochabertimes.co.uk
