The importance of saying ‘thank-you’


The Upper School girls were treated to a visit from The Reverend Nadine Rose from St Mary’s Church in Wendover this week to help them celebrate Harvest Festival.

Years 3 and 4 had their Harvest Assembly on Monday and Years 5 and 6 enjoyed their Harvest Assembly earlier today. Reverend Rose’s message was all about the importance of saying ‘thank-you’ and appreciating the things that we have. The girls were encouraged to think about why we say ‘thank-you’ and to recognise not only how it makes the other person feel, but how it can also impact positively on how you feel about yourself. The girls had gathered a wonderful selection of Harvest items, which have now been collected by the Slough Food Bank, and we are most grateful for parents’ support and generosity with this.

Year 6 have been busy learning and recording two Harvest Poems over recent weeks and these were played on screen as part of our Harvest assemblies.  6G performed ‘Colour in the Wheat’ by Hamlin Garland and 6K performed ‘November Morning’ by Evaleen Stein.  Both of these recordings will be made available to parents to view.
