AN ARRAY of colourful bonnets ensured youngsters at a Southsea school celebrated the end of term in style.

Staff and pupils from the nursery, infant and junior school of St John’s College, enjoyed a range of Easter activities before they broke up for the holidays.

Pre-prep boys and girls explored the school fields for plastic eggs.

All the junior pupils took part in an Easter bonnet parade and a giant egg raffle that raised almost £1,000 for the baby unit at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham and the asthma charity, AAIR.

Biboye Fasipe, six, who took part in the egg hunt, said: ‘I found my egg hidden at the bottom of the tree.’

Ethan Charles, six, said: ‘I swapped my egg for a Moshi Monster egg.’

Head of art at the junior school Maggie Callan was delighted with the quality of the bonnets.

She said: ‘The boys and girls have been hard at work designing and making bonnets for our parade with the winning designs showing particular originality and creativity.’
