Harvest Assembly - Monday 9th October  2.30pm

Harvest festival is an annual celebration that occurs around the time of the main harvest. In Britain, thanks have been given for successful harvests since pagan times. Harvest festival is traditionally held on the Sunday near or of the Harvest Moon.

In British schools people bring in produce from the garden, the allotment or farm. The food is often distributed among the poor and senior citizens of the local community, or used to raise funds for the church, or charity.

This year the gifts from our harvest assembly will be donated to support local families in Leighton Buzzard.

 Non-perishable Harvest gifts may be brought into school from Thursday 5th October to add to our collection in the hall, on the stage.
