Diwali Day

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

On Tuesday 29th October we celebrated Diwali Day throughout the school.  The children took part in a range of activities which included retelling the story of Rama and Sita, creating Diva lamps, composing their own Diwali dance and decorating Rangoli patterns.  The children learnt all about the traditions of Diwali.  We completed the day by coming together as a school and performing a whole school dance and sharing the learning that had taken place.

Harvest Festival

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Our Harvest Service took place on Friday 4th October at 9.20 a.m. at St Lawrence Church, led by Rev. Peter Turnbull.  Families generously donated their harvest gifts to the Church where they were collected and, in turn, donated to the Rushden Food Bank.

We also supported the Bishop of St Albans’ Harvest Appeal, which is “Light Up Tanzania” to help fund solar electricity to the isolated, rural communities of the Singida region of Tanzania in East Africa with the monetary donations that were collected during the service.  Thank you to all who donated on this occasion.  We were overwhelmed by the amount of food that was brought into church and how this will help all of those less fortunate than ourselves.

Thank you.
