A bit about us...
The Anchor Section is all about having fun! Our usual evening programme consists of a mixture of games, craft and stories.
Boys earn badges for participation in the activities offered and these are usually presented every September.
Every week we have a short focus time when we listen to a story from the Bible and talk about what we can learn from it.
Other activities that we regularly enjoy include: cooking, movie nights, treasure hunts, team games, LEGO® and visits to the common during the summer term. We also sometimes have 'theme' evenings, like our Dinosaur Challenge.
In the past we have enjoyed visits from ‘The Animal Experience’ where boys were able to hold snakes, giant snails and huge spiders. We also enjoy our visits from Steve the Juggler who lets us loose with the tools of his trade. We celebrate Christmas in a big way and this year we even had a bouncy castle in the chapel. A favourite activity in the summer is to visit all the chip shops in town and then (after sampling) mark them out of ten, MasterChef style.
Anchors is a great way for boys to form friendships, gain confidence and feel valued as part of a team as they share new experiences together.
The adventure begins here!
