This week our Harvest Festival collection which was very kindly donated by our families was given to the Kettering District Food Bank (The Trussell Trust).  All of the collection and donation to the foodbank was organised by our brilliant TOPs and we are very pleased to be able to support such a worthy local cause.  

The foodbank supports a wide range of local people who are in geuine need.  It isnt just about getting the food which is allocated to families who are referred by supporting services, the food bank is part of a network which supports people to access the services they need to help them.  The people who benefit from the foodbank are not just the homeless; it also supports those in need including many working families on low incomes who need extra help.

Thank you to all our families who supported us with their donations and especially to TOPs for organising this for our school.

On Wednesday we enjoyed our Harvest Festival led by Rev. Eleanor (Associate Vicar at Christ the King).  We welcomed lots of parents to our assembly and it was the Reception children’s first assembly in the hall and they were fantastic.  Firstly, thank you all for your very kind donations for harvest.  We have a huge pile of food which our brilliant TOPs have arranged to send to the Kettering District Food Bank (The Trussell Trust).  They are still collecting change which they will be counting on Friday and also donating.  The assembly was lots of fun with Rev. Eleanor teaching us all about Harvest and to ‘Rejoice, Remember and Rely’ to God for the things we have, knowing that He will provide for us.  We also sang a fun (but very repetitive!) song with the parents encouraged to join in.  A huge thank you to all the parents who helped move the harvest donations, set them up and clear up after assembly it was greatly appreciated.
