  Hello Visitor,

Harvest Service 

It was wonderful to once again see a packed church for a school service. Thank you all for your generous donations for the Daylight Centre. It was a very impressive collection of food and I know it was very gratefully received.

As well as some fantastic singing, the children told us all about their Global Curriculum work linked to Harvest - making guacamole and baking hedgehog bread, learning about the festival of Onam and creating beautiful Rangoli patterns, Autumnal nature walks with leaf printing and using shadufs to help irrigate the land along the Nile!
