Lower school students celebrated Thanksgiving today with a selection of musical performances by each grade, under direction of music teacher, Mrs. Jameson. Songs included, The Harvest song, Autumn Leaves, There’s Me, Thank You For The Sunshine, and Thank You for Almost Everything! Kindergarten students celebrated in their classroom with a giant turkey feast with all the fixings!
Teachers spoke about the true meaning of Thanksgiving and the importance of charity and giving to the less fortunate. Many charity drives are undertaken throughout the year and during this festive season, students have been involved in collecting canned foods for The Salvation Army, gifts for the Samaritans Purse ‘Shoebox Appeal’, and items for Romanian Children’s Relief. Upper school students will donate gifts to a local mother and child shelter in the local community.
