‘We thank thee then, O Father,
For all things bright and good,
The seed-time and the harvest,
Our life, our health, our food.’
Harvest Festival was held at Talbot Heath School on Wednesday 7th October 2015. Like an artist’s installation the main stage was filled with a rainbow of produce generously provided by the staff, girls and their families, and the whole school community came together to celebrate this seasonal festival once again. The service was taken by The Revd Jonathan Burke, his theme was ‘sharing’. A moving story was told about how a young boy in Ethiopia gave his prized possession, a football card, to an English boy, which started a series of communications between the two. This was followed by a bible reading about the loaves and fishes, again emphasising the significance of sharing and generosity in the community.
