Harvest Festival

Marlow Infants celebrate Harvest Festival on Thursday 5th October

We were overwhelmed by the number of parents who came to our Harvest Festival today. We held two services, where they were led by worship leaders from Year 2. They stood up in front of a hall full of children, teachers,  parents and grandparents and explained that Harvest Festival is a time to celebrate all the food we eat and be thankful to God for giving us everything we need.

They told us the story of Frank, a farmer in Malawi, who couldn't grow enough food to eat and the help he was given by Christian Aid.  

At the end of the services, the worship leaders told us that they had felt nervous before they started but that they felt 'proud' and 'happy' after they had finished!

Year 1 sang some Harvest songs, Reception sang 'The Dingle Dangle Scarecrow' and Year 2 sang 'Shoo wop do waddy waddy'.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our service of celebration and thanksgiving and for the donations you brought in for One Can Trust. They will be very grateful for all the donations that will help to feed local families.
