Harvest Festival 2020
Welcome back everyone to Rights Respecting Schools!
It is at this time of year when our thoughts usually turn to our Harvest Festival collection to help the families in our community that need it most. This year we are unable to get together to celebrate in school but we will be doing some work within our classrooms to mark the occasion. We will be looking at the origins of harvest, and how and why it is still relevant to celebrate today.
Unfortunately we are unable to accept donations directly at school this year. However Rayleigh Holy Trinity Church is a collection point for the local charity Hopeworx and would be particularly grateful for any longlife food items, ie; dried goods such as pasta/ rice, and tinned goods such as tuna, soup, beans etc. The Hopeworx food hub is accessed by various agencies in the area who ensure that this food is received by families and children in our community that need it most. Please drop donations before 12 noon if at all possible, at Holy Trinity Church, High Street, Rayleigh.
If you would like to share a little harvest joy at home then follow this link to sing the Harvest Samba at home! The words are a little fast but this is a familiar song to our children. Who doesn’t love a singing challenge?
Every child has rights.
