Harvest Festival 2017
Harvest 2017 saw pupils across the school deliver important and poignant messages. The tragedy of food waste was highlighted through the medium of song and concerns for those less fortunate were expertly delivered through eloquent speech.
A considerable number of donations for the Trussell Trust’s Ealing Foodbank provided the backdrop for an afternoon of entertainment interspersed with meaningful reflection and messages of hope. Contributions from different year groups communicated understanding and empathy with those who struggle to afford the basics.
With over 2000 Foodbanks now operating in the UK, Harvest remains an important date in the calendar. The generosity and kindness of the Avenue House School community was in evidence as canned foods and other non-perishables arrived throughout the week for donation. A powerful reminder of those less fortunate, our Harvest Festival was attended and supported by parents at St Stephen’s Church. We hope that the facts shared and wisdom inherent in the lyrics delivered during an engaging performance will resonate for some time to come.
As is the Harvest norm, we were also duly reminded to polish off our greens!
“Pupils have developed an excellent awareness, respect and appreciation of others.”
