Children work at foodbank for harvestPosted: 8th October 2019
Generous children donated food and their time to those less fortunate.
Key Stage 2 school council representatives from Roydon Primary Academy delivered items which had been collected by their classmates to Harlow Foodbank.
While there, they were given a tour, found out about the process of getting the food to those who need it and asked questions about the charity’s work.
To mark harvest festival, the school also held a service at St Peter’s Church for pupils, teachers, parents and members of the community.
Pupils performed poetry, sung songs and gave readings.
Headteacher Michael Clark said: “We are incredibly thankful to all who donated food for this brilliant cause. We have such a supportive community who came out to support the children at the festival, but also supported the cause to donate food, giving generously.
“I think the children have learnt a great deal from the experience, including how important it is to support others.”
