On Monday 7th October, St Stephen’s School celebrated Harvest. Over the past few weeks, pupils and staff have brought in a wide variety of donations including a range of tinned products, cereals, biscuits, pasta and nappies. We had an abundant display this year!
We shared the donations between three local donation centres: St. Stephen’s Children’s Centre, the Newham Renewal Project and the Chapters Foodbank.
At our Harvest Assembly, we were visited by Ruth Bravery, a representative from the Newham Renewal Project. She told us how the food will be shared at their Refugee and Migrant Project Foodbank every Tuesday. As well as offering food, the project also provides English classes and advice sessions. At the end of the assembly, the children asked Jackie some thoughtful questions about how and why people use the foodbank.
Every group who has received a donation has been overwhelmed with the generosity of the pupils and parents. We would like to thank you all for your donations.
