A week of Harvest celebrations!
It’s been a busy, colourful and celebrational week across the whole school, as we’ve held our Harvest services. It’s been particularly special this year welcoming back families and governors after so many months. To be able to share these memories and sing again has brought so much joy, and made us realise how much we’ve missed gathering together.
After our Pre-Prep services earlier in the week, today we held our Lower School and Upper School Services. Guest speaker Rachel Hughes from Gas Street church spoke to Years 5 and 6. She handed out enormous bars of chocolate to the children to demonstrate the generosity of God. But the catch was to share them and pass them on to show ‘love in action’! We had a drama performance from members of Year 6 and the Chapel Choir prepared a stunning anthem, “Look at the world” by John Rutter, tying in perfectly with the theme of Harvest.
It has truly been a special way to end half term. We are so grateful to all our families for the generous donations of food and toiletries which will be delivered to the ‘Love Your Neighbour’ food bank at St Luke’s church shortly. As the children have been learning this term, each gift given is an act of love.
