Girls' Harvest Festival
Friday, 08 October 2010
The whole school attended a Harvest Assembly lead by the Reverend Alan Morris, a retired vicar from Greenmount Reformed Methodist Church. He told three short stories about Harvest time and was ably assisted by thirteen girls. The assembly concluded with a quiz, which everyone enjoyed.
Over the course of a week girls had brought their harvest gifts into school culminating in a splendid display covering the stage of Hesketh House. This was a most generous response from the girls' families that will benefit the homeless in our local community over the winter months. A two man team from Winterwatch related to the girls what would happen next to their gifts and offered their thanks to the school.
The assembly came to a close with a rendering of, 'All things bright and beautiful' sung by Katherine Jenkins. Pictures on the Hall screen enhanced the sense of 'awe and wonder' on this occasion.
