As part of the annual harvest celebration, St George’s School Windsor Castle has collected more than 30 bags of packaged foods to give to Windsor Foodshare to help tackle food poverty in the local area this winter.
Donated by parents and staff over the course of this half term, the consignment will be delivered to the charity during the October half term holiday by Emma Adriano, the school’s deputy head and head of pre-prep. In parallel, numerous donations have also been collected for Battersea Old Windsor, including dog treats and food.
“Harvest is a time to reflect on and give thanks for what we have, as well as to share with others who are not as fortunate as we are,” Adriano said. “Given the current economic climate, we are especially grateful to our school community for giving so generously this year and in doing so, helping those in the local community through their kindness.”
In addition to collecting food, the school celebrated the season with multiple craft projects, as well as two Harvest Festival performances, with children from Reception to Year 2 gathering in front of parents and friends to sing much-loved songs such as Big Red Combine Harvester and Under the Harvest Moon.
