Easter parades!

Two Salisbury Plain primary schools had a cracking last day of term today.

Bulford St Leonard’s Primary School children created Easter baskets. And, Durrington All Saints Infant School had a visit from the Easter Bunny and a good old-fashioned Easter Bonnet parade.

The Reception and Nursery children at Bulford paraded their creations in the school hall and were each rewarded with a Cadbury’s Crème Egg – if their baskets could carry one.

The one rule of the Easter basket was that the basket must be designed to carry an egg.

Sarah Ward, principal at Bulford said: “There are some fabulous creations – from the Death Star – with Darth Vader in situ, Gotham City and an almost life-sized pelican – it’s been an amazing effort!”

Lindsay West, principal at Durrington All Saints said: “This is a lovely way to engage parents at the end of a busy term, get them all in. 

“It lets us see how creative the parents are, so we can see their talent – we get nearly 100% participation which is brilliant. It’s just a really happy event at the end of term.”

The Durrington academy school had a panel of judges from the local community; policeman PC Will Todd, councillor Graham Wright and local leisure centre manager Jonathan Hargreave

Both schools are part of Salisbury Plain Academies, a multi-academy trust.
