The Junior School Harvest Festival Service was held this morning in the Gibbs Hall. It was standing room only for the parents. The children, for some of whom this was their first formal performance, happily waved as they spotted Mum and Dad.
The girls and boys had all been practising Harvest songs. Readings and prayers were read by six prepped and polished Year 2 children.
The Reverend Leach, from St James Church Gerrards Cross, gave a short talk on why Harvest time is so special and why it is so important to give thanks.
The service was closed by Years 1 and 2 singing “Sing a song for Harvest” and the eldest children made their way to the minibus to travel to Edith Bell Retirement Home who was taking delivery of the generously donated Harvest gifts.
2M took the Harvest gifts to Edith Bell House. The children recited a Harvest poem with lovely actions! They then handed the named gifts to the residents who were delighted to receive them. The ladies and gentlemen enjoyed talking to our boys and girls and are looking forward to enjoying their gifts.
