Ann Edwards School Harvest 2017
Thank you to all who contributed in many ways – setting up the display, contributing produce, bagging up parcels, helping with our walk. The children visited 185 households, once again blessed with fine weather.
Thank you to all those people who have taken the time to write back to our children, your letters are very special and give such pleasure to the recipient.
Thanks to the very generous donations of produce, the school has also been able to give nearly 400 kg of food to the Cirencester Food Bank.
The school harvest/village link began at Ann Edwards School in 1988, when the Head Mistress and staff recognised that many of the older people in the village didn't have family nearby, also, many children did not have grandparents nearby. So they decided to create a link with the older people of South Cerney and the children of the school. It is an important lesson for the children in being thankful, thinking of others and generosity. It continues today, nearly 30 years on, to give great pleasure both to the recipients and the children.
What a day !
Our children were amazing, once again, and the weather could not have been better for our whole school harvest walk. This is a tradition we all enjoy and one which brings the community together.
Our values are very much living values. This annual harvest event shows our commitment to :- Service, Thankfulness, Friendship and Generosity. Thank you to everyone involved. To Mrs Harris, who amazes us every year, for her brilliant harvest display and ability to pull a harvest team together to create a masterpiece . Thank you too to Mr Bruce and Reverend McKenzie for our Harvest Collective Worship.
