Harvest Festival 2020

Friday, 23 October 2020

Everyone at the school just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who made a donation to our Harvest Festival celebrations this week. I’m sure you will all agree, the final rainbow looked fantastic and all the food/donations have now been dropped off at the Harold Hill foodbank - who were extremely surprised and grateful about the amount of food that was delivered to them this morning!

Enjoy your half term!
