Harvest Festival - Humanitarian Aid
Friday 9th October

Each year the Primary School celebrates the Harvest Festival with an Assembly to which parents are invited and which will be held in the Performing Arts Hall at 09h00 on Friday 9th October.

For over twenty years we have taken a group of students in the Choir

(Forms 4, 5 and 6) to the Senior Citizen’s Home (le Foyer de Font de l’Orme) where they entertain the residents with their singing. This is an important moment for both our students and the elderly and permits a delightful exchange between the ages. The songs will be performed during the Assembly.

We have, in the past, supported Les Petits Soeurs des Pauvres in Nice. This is a home for elderly people who have no financial support. However, exceptionally this year, we will be donating foodstuff to those immigrants who are existing in deplorable conditions at Ventimiglia on the French/Italian border. The food will be taken to them directly after the Assembly and will really make an appreciable difference to their lives. Clothing is also needed, essentially men’s clothes and shoes. If you wish to donate clothes you can drop them in the Office any time before 9th October. The following foodstuffs are required: Coffee/tea, olive oil, milk, conserves – tuna, sardines, chick peas - pasta, rice, flour, fruit juice.

These items can be brought to the Hall of the Primary Building during the week commencing 5th October and will be displayed in the Assembly.

Thanking you in advance for your support and generosity.
