This year’s Girls’ Division Harvest Assembly saw Senior Girls process into the Hall and make a donation to the mountain of food items on the stage of the Great Hall. Year 7 girls led the assembly and focused on what being rich really means. It meant different things to each individual but there were common themes, including having a loving family and good friends; enjoying happiness and peace; taking part in fun clubs and activities; having inspiring teachers; being safe, secure and happy; helping save the planet as part of a team; and enjoying good social networks. They all agreed it was not about having possessions! 

The assembly ended with a reading of the School Prayer, which reminds the girls that much is required by those to whom much has been given, and a rousing rendition of ‘We Plough the Fields and Scatter’. 

Urban Outreach, who have worked with the vulnerable and disadvantaged in the town since 1990, was delighted to come into the school again – having already collected items from the Infant School and both Junior Schools – to collect items for their Winter Watch campaign. Sixth Form girls helped load up the van with the provisions.
