Many thanks to all of our parents, families and friends for joining us for our Harvest Festival celebrations in school today. Both celebration assemblies were really well-attended and we are grateful to Dave Morris from Hope Church, Hanbury Hill, for leading them. Many thanks to all our families for your generous Harvest Gifts, including the ‘Morning Coffee’ boxes, which will be collected by Black Country Food Bank on Monday morning. Black Country Food Bank helps vulnerable individuals and families in crisis through the provision of emergency food supplies for a period of three days, while a longer-term solution is developed. Their services have an enormous impact on the people who use them, giving them an important breathing space at a time of great need. The Food Bank only provides for individuals and families, who really are in need. Their aim is not to create dependency but to help those in crisis while other agencies work to address underlying problems. Last year, with your help, Black Country Food Bank provided 67,000 meals to children!
We are grateful to Hope Church for accommodating all our children fro Year 1 to Year 6 for a Harvest Experience every afternoon this week. In the words of Amelia in Year 5: ‘It was brilliant. I enjoyed all the activities and the Harvest bread was beautiful.’ Many thanks to Mrs Delia Knapman for organising these events.
