Harvest Celebrations

Harvest Celebrations

Parents and friends at each school in the Federation joined with the children to celebrate Harvest.   Acorn Federation had chosen Mary's Meals as their charity to support with donations of money instead of the usual items of food. Mary's Meals is a global movement that sets up school feeding projects in some of the worlds poorest communities where hunger and poverty prevent children from gaining an education.  The funds raised provide one daily meal to children in a place of learning, attracting chronically poor children into a classroom, allowing them to be provided with an education that could, in the future, give them the steps to remove them from poverty. 

At. St. Andrew's Primary a total of £164 was collected whilst at Mrs Ethelston's Primary a total of £399.15 was donated.  This money will make a remarkable difference to many children's lives.  Thank you to all the children and parents for their kind donations.
