Embracing the spirit of the Harvest Festival

Each school in our Federation has uniquely marked this time of year, from lively assemblies to creative classroom activities. The highlight, however, has been the heartwarming participation in church services, like the one at St George's Church in Dunster.  It's been a moving experience to see our students, staff, and families come together in these hallowed spaces, sharing songs, stories, and reflections on the abundance and blessings we all share.

Our halls have been filled with the sounds of children singing traditional harvest songs, their voices a reminder of the joy and simplicity of giving thanks.  Our classrooms have turned into hubs of creativity, with children crafting decorations and learning about the importance of harvest in our lives.

But it's not just about celebration; it's also about giving back. Many of our schools have participated in donating to local food banks, turning gratitude into action.  The generosity displayed by our students and their families is truly heartening, ensuring that the spirit of the Harvest touches as many lives as possible.

As we come together in these moments, we're reminded of the power of community and the importance of being thankful for the natural bounty that sustains us.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of these beautiful celebrations. Your involvement makes these events more meaningful and impactful. Let's continue to nurture this spirit of gratitude and community as we move forward into the rest of the school year.
