Pupils Raise the Roof with Heartfelt Harvest Festival
Once again, this year’s Harvest Festival was an uplifting service as pupils treated their families and friends to some gospel-inspired songs.
The first half of the Michaelmas Term is always a spiritual “journey” for our community. We begin with the high drama of new beginnings, with new friendships and new challenges. Our popular St Francis Mass opens the religious celebrations of the term, and this is soon followed by our Harvest Festivals.
As is tradition, Year 2 led our Pre-Prep service, with all of the children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 contributing their own special songs. Our new scarecrow friends, Pitch and Patch, even made a guest appearance. In our equally heart-warming Prep service, pupils from across the year groups came together to sing, pray and celebrate the plentiful harvest.
This year saw a record crop of donations for The Open Door, a Taunton-based charity that supports rough sleepers and those in temporary accommodation. King’s College also had a record donation, with their food distributed to the Taunton Food Bank.
