Harvest Service 2019

On Monday 14th October the pupils at Frieth CEC School were joined by Rev Carol Kimberley, parents, grandparents and community members to celebrate the harvest with a Church service in St John the Evangelist Church. Prior to the service our year 3 and 4 pupils worked with our foundation governors and members of the Church community to prepare the Harvest Loaf complete with a harvest mouse, which took a central place on the altar for both the village and the school harvest services. Each of the classes prepared a song or poem about Autumn or Harvest which they performed beautifully. Our Eldest pupils led the service, including readings, hymns, songs and prayers they had written themselves; and the final blessing was given by Rev Kimberley. 

At Frieth school, the harvest is not just about being thankful, but is also about thinking of our wider communities and people in need. Therefore, as part of the Harvest Service, every child made a donation to the local ‘One Can Trust’ appeal and filled the altar with their fantastic gifts. Thank you to all the children and parents who showed such generosity.
