Harvest is a special time for giving thanks for the food we eat as well as remembering that we are not all as fortunate as each other.
Parents, carers and children from across the school learnt about the journey of bread in our special harvest assembly today. Our year two children told us how the combine harvester cuts the crops from the ground and shakes the grains away from their stalks. We heard how the grains are ground between two stones and made into the flour that we use to make bread, cakes, roti and other bakery items.
Through their fabulous singing, the children captured the celebration of harvest through songs about the red combine harvester, the harvest moon and about the wide variety of foods that are available for us to eat.
The back drop to our assembly was a table of food, kindly donated by our families. This has been greatly received by The Salvation Army who will distribute it. We would like to thank you for your generosity.
