Generous donations received as Junior School celebrates Harvest
Last week (3 October), pupils at St George's Junior School, Weybridge generously donated food, drink, toiletries and more, as they celebrated Harvest.
The children were asked to bring in donations that would then be donated to the Walton and Hersham food bank.
On Tuesday, a service in the School Hall was held for the Lower Years so that they could gain a better understanding of why the celebrations were taking place. Year 2 pupils helped explain what happens at Harvest and how the rest of the children could help those less fortunate than themselves.
A special service in the Chapel was then held for the Early Years children, with their delighted and proud parents watching on. The Nursery and Reception girls and boys were in fine voice as they sang a number of songs enthusiastically and with big smiles on their faces. Each member of the Nursery also brought an apple to the service to lay in baskets that would then be given to the food bank.
The celebrations finished with pupils excitedly helping to pack up a vans worth of donated goods to the Walton and Hersham food bank.
Since the donations were made, St George's Junior School has received a certificate from the food bank to say the pupils kindly donated 446kg worth of food, a terrific amount.
