Light in the darkness: Chavagnes scouts
Max, one of our Year 13 pupils, is installed as Assitant Scoutmaster. Our Scouts walked 15km to La Chabotterie the other day to the place where General Charette was captured at the end of the Vendée uprising. In what by all acounts was a very moving ceremony several new members received their neckerchiefs ('foulards') in the colours of Scarlet, gold and azure.
