Tales Of The Unexpected (12th April)

Our anthology of scary stories has proved popular with at least one member of the Discoverers...

Natural Genius (12th April)

Plants are clever fellows. They have various ways of dispersing their seeds. Here are a few that we have discovered. Art by Arthur, Macie, Emmy, Will, Emily, Elizabeth and Yavor.

Music Master (12th April)

Some of you will remember music master Mr Firth. For many years Mr Firth was a regular fixture of the Discoverers, leading and organising our class band. Despite his final session with us being last Easter, it is the measure of his continued popularity that people frequently ask when Mr Firth might return and work with us again. This afternoon was no exception as the question arose once more.

Sadly, we learned that Mr Firth passed away last month.

For such a long time Mr Firth’s kindness and undoubted musical skills have been an asset to the Discoverers. The gentlest of men, good humoured and eternally modest, Mr Firth was a delight to work with and know. Moreover, it was obvious that Mr Firth really cared about his work with us. There can be few who have been more dedicated. He is much missed.

This afternoon we popped over to church to perform the story of the Last Supper and the trial of Jesus...
