On April 13, the students at the Vavenby Primary School had coloured pictures for the Easter colouring contest in the morning and when the pictures were finished the substitute teacher took them to the general store. At lunch time the children watched an Easter movie. After the movie all of the students were given an Easter cookie and a plastic egg holding some candy.
Next the children were handed a piece of paper and told to follow the teacher’s steps in drawing a mystery picture. It turned out to be a bird. After the art work and clean up the students had some free time before going home.
Egg Hunt at community hall
There was an Easter egg hunt at the community hall on April 15, from 10 a.m. – 11a.m. sponsored by the Vavenby Trails and Recreation Society and organized by Barb Pennell. The grounds of the hall were divided into age groups, including 11 and older. When it was time to go searching everyone took off quickly to see what they could find. Pennell reminded the younger kids not to be greedy but to share.
After the hunt everyone could have hot dogs, bottles of water, cupcakes in a cone made by Pennell, and goodies. Then the awards for the Easter bonnets were handed out. There were more children and adults wearing them this year.
For the 0 – 5 years old: First went to Kelsey Rexin and Brooklyn Ruttan was second.
For the 6 – 10 age group:
Chloe Tremblay was first and her twin brothers Blayke and Brock came second.
In the 11 – adult category Christina Rexin came first and Kevan Rexin second.
Prizes for the bonnets were baskets made by Pennell that were full of goodies.
It was a beautiful, warm, and sunny day for the event. No one could have asked for nicer weather.
