The contributions waiting to be deposited at the Food Bank
On Thursday 5th October, we were greeted into the hall with a lovely song about harvest.
We celebrated that day by exploring the meaning of ‘harvest.’ Harvest obviously refers to the harvesting of crops in autumn but we were encouraged to think more broadly about the EARTH that produces our food, the need to SHARE what we have with the people who have less and to think about and feel compassion from our HEART for the people in other countries and at home who know what it is to STARVE.
At the time of harvest, you should think about being grateful and sharing your food that we take for granted so what better to reinforce this idea than eat doughnuts! After some children tried to eat the doughnuts without licking their lips they realised it would be better to share with other people. As a result, all the kids felt very pleased with themselves as they enjoyed sharing with others.
The House Captains took the food ,that the children kindly brought in, to the food bank. Everyone donated a huge amount of food in packets, tins and boxes. All of the food donated will be going to people that either struggle getting food or don’t have any money to buy food.
