Pupils at Beech Hall School have assisted vulnerable members of the local community with a Harvest Festival assembly.
The special event saw children, parents, friends and staff join together at the Tytherington-based school to celebrate the occasion and generously fill Harvest baskets with an array of wholesome produce for Hampers of Hope, supporting families in North East Cheshire.
Pupils delighted guests with renditions of Who Put the Colours in the Rainbow and Autumn Days. To cement pupils’ understanding of the occasion, a talk was given on the history of Harvest and a thought-provoking speech came from Andrea Fritton, Youth Minster at St Peter’s Church in Prestbury, who shared her views on the importance of sharing.
Headmaster, James Allen commented: “The pupils presented a heart-warming display and their enthusiasm to support the cause really shone through in their performances. By providing the children with different opportunities to engage in charitable work, we are able to instil in them a sense of empathy. Supporting those in need closest to us in our local community was a worthy way to do this.
“An overwhelming amount of produce was generously donated by the pupils and parents, and we would like to thank all involved for working together to support this highly beneficial cause.”
