- This event has passed.
On Thursday 19 October we will be holding a harvest celebration at school where our children will come together to celebrate this time of year and give thanks for what we have. As part of this event the children will be sharing harvest themed songs and poems with one another, with every child taking part in the celebration.
Unfortunately, as this is a school-wide celebration, we are unable to accommodate parents at the event, however we will be sharing a video and photos on the website afterwards.
We would love for our school community to come together in support of the Lakeside Community Project, a local foodbank. We understand that this is a challenging time for many families and foodbanks nationwide are increasingly relied upon by many members of our local community. Representatives of the Lakeside Community Project will be joining us for the event, too. If you are able, we ask that your child please bring a donation of food to school that can be provided to the foodbank.
The Lakeside Community Project have asked for us to collect any ‘ambient food’ – essentially anything that can be stored at room temperature and has a reasonable shelf life i.e. not fresh fruit or vegetables. Examples of suitable products:
- tinned meat
- tinned fish
- tinned vegetables
- tinned tomatoes
- baked beans
- dried pasta
- cooking sauces
- ketchup tinned
- fruit rice pudding
- tea and coffee
Our celebration event will take place on Thursday 19th October and children are welcome to bring donations to school from Monday 16th October until the Thursday, when all of the donations will be collected by the team at the foodbank.
Thank you in advance for your support; hopefully our school community can really make a difference.
