The children are invited to demonstrate sharing, skills, knowledge, and ideas to reinforce the learning.  The message of sharing is being well received in all schools, where in many, generous donations are also being given to the team for the Brighton Food Bank.  So far, many children have been excited to see our Schools team back in this new school year, and reception children have behaved beautifully, in what was, their first whole school assembly.

The deputy head teacher in one junior school said: “The message really struck a cord with the children today, they will go away really considering that.”

One boy came up to us after an assembly and said “That was a good assembly because it made me understand what Harvest is all about.

Another boy also shared “I thought Harvest was about eating food and farming  crops but today I’ve learnt about people all over the world and really it’s about sharing what we have with others.”

If you are a school looking to book our Schools team for an assembly, please email schools@bhcm.org.uk.
