EGG decorating, fairs and fundraising fun have made the run up to Easter egg-stra special this year.

Schools and organisations across the district held a variety of concerts, competitions and themed events to start the cracking Easter break in style.

Youngsters at Luddenden Foot Junior and Infants School finished their term with a egg decorating competition while Rastrick Independant School youngsters marked their final day before Easter with a traditional service at St Matthew’s Church - and a display of their own artistic egg creations.

Green-fingered Triangle Primary School pupils meanwhile turned to flower power to make pretty Easter garden creations.

Headteacher Gavin Davies said: “There were some fantastic ideas for the mini Easter garden competition.

“It was a great success and all the winners won .”

Rastrick Independent School enjoyed an end of term Easter service at St Matthew’s Church.

The whole school entertained governors and parents with a performance of the Easter story as well as readings and songs.

Headteacher Susan Vaughey said: “It was a beautiful service and was very well attended.

“The children did a great job and I’m very proud of them.” Pupils at Dean Field Community Primary School, Halifax, gave a helping hand to a new charity’s Easter hunt plans.

The youngsters at the Ovenden school painted eggs to decorate the Piece Hall ready for the Kidz Foundation team to let the bunnies loose over the Easter weekend.

Kidz Foundation is a new charity set up by Simon Widdop, Paul Holdsworth and Sarah Thompson. Both the Widdop and Holdsworth families have had children who have had long-term treatment for leukemia and want to give something back.

Children can join in between 10am and 4pm and April 22 to April 25. Collect your sheet from the Art Gallery in the Piece Hall and for more information call 01422 728080.

And the Friends of Queensbury Parish Church held a fair with an Easter egg hunt, stalls and refreshments. Visitors were also given the chance to climb to the top of Holy Trinity Parish Church’s tower to soak in sunshine-drenched views of the village.
