Harvest Festival Oct 2018
24 Sep 2018
Harvest Festival at St Helen’s Church - Thursday 4th October 10am – Years 1 - 6
You are invited to join us for our Harvest Service on Thursday 4th October. As usual this takes place in St Helen’s Church, South Street at 10am.
If you would like to walk to and from the church with the children please see your child’s class teacher. Extra help in walking the children safely is always appreciated.
This year, children can bring in non-perishable produce (particularly tins of soup, pots of jam and instant mash) which will be passed on to Ashby Food Bank. Donations should be brought in to school on the Friday morning and placed in the large tubs located near the office.
In addition, a collection of money will be taken at the church by Year 6, and we will donate this to Liverpool Community School in Sierra Leone, where we are raising money to help build a library.
Minimal seating is available in church. Please be aware the children totally 363 and school fill the pews so parents will mainly need to stand. (Our service is approximately 45 minutes).
Please ensure that your child brings a coat to school on the Friday and is wearing strong, sensible walking shoes.
This year Foundation Stage will be celebrating their Harvest Festival at school and at NOT St Helen’s Church.
FS parents can come along and celebrate with us in the school hall on Friday 5th October at 2:30pm.
We look forward to a wonderful Harvest Celebration with you,
Mr Brookes/Miss Rainbow
and Mrs Parkes
