Gad’s Nursery, Kindergarten and Junior children came together to celebrate harvest time, with a concert and presentation of donated food to a local outreach charity.
Students as young as three performed songs, poems and readings about what harvest means to them and to people all over the world.
The older students presented a series of recitals and tunes about ‘The Global Goals’ and Head of Modern Languages, Miss Sophie Batther directed children from reception to year six through Spanish melody ‘Hojas, Hojas’.
As well as showing proud parents their language and vocal skills, the youngest entertainers, the Nursery classes, kept the crowd entertained with their rendition of ‘Old MacDonald had a Farm’.
After the concerts, Headmaster Mr Paul Savage thanked the children for their enthusiasm and talent before announcing that Gad’s children had collected more than 3,000 items for ‘Caring Hands in the Community’.
A representative from the Medway aid organisation gratefully accepted the donation and explained how the children’s and their families generosity would help the charity.
‘Caring Hands in the Community’ has a purpose built kitchen facility which delivers an average of 250 meals and snacks each day to those most in need in the community.
