Held on Jan 18th at St Michaels Hall, the children made hair bands, built a temple, and demolished it too, made hair braids, lion mats, Samson biscuits with marshmallow dumb bells and lots more before a brief time of celebration followed by hot dogs and spinach (for the strength!). The hot dogs went well, not so the spinach which was found in a little pile on the table.
