Harvest Festival - Reaching out and reflecting

Posted on: November 9th 2017

On Wednesday 18th of October, we all gathered at the packed St Andrews Church to celebrate the Harvest Festival.  I have always looked forward to this school event as it reminds me of how fortunate we are.   Every year, families and friends donate food to the Church which supports the local soup kitchen (which I’m looking forward to visiting later on in the year) and this year was no different.  The theme this year was all about reaching out and reflecting and we certainly put on a performance which showed off a huge variety of skills and talents.  

The celebration this year showcased our growing “musical family” - right from Junior Prep through to year 6.  Children sang in choirs, solo, duets and performed solo pieces on the piano and flute.  Every year group sang a song and it was wonderful to see how proud our parents were.  The Senior Ensemble and the Senior Choir closed the event by performing “We Plough the Fields and Scatter” and “Harvest Samba”.  Each and every performance was excellent.  The standards were exceptionally high and it was clear to me that all the musicians enjoyed the limelight and the opportunity to show off their hard work and their musicality to their friends and family. It was certainly a concert that I will remember and treasure and judging by the crescendo of applauses from the audience, I am not the only one!  This was a fitting end to the 1st half term.
