Our Harvest Festival

Our Harvest Festival on PhotoPeach

What an amazing event today’s Harvest Festival was.  Over 200 adults joined the children and staff to celebrate Harvest. The children sang beautifully and brought so MANY tins and other offerings for our Harvest Table.  Mrs McBirnie announced one child from each class as a Successful Learner this week and Ms Laing gave them a certificate.  Towards the end, we presented Liam with a thank you gift. Liam has been a hugely popular volunteer at our school and  is leaving to go to college.  All the children will really miss him. 

Next, about 100 adults stayed for a McMillan Coffee Morning which raised £100 for McMillan Cancer Research.  The children set off to the Johnny Moat to sing and give their harvest gifts.  There’s so many gifts that they are out delivering tomorrow and Tuesday too. 

What a generous school community. Thank you all.

About Sheila Laing

Having lived and worked in West Pilton, Edinburgh for 30 years, I am now really happy to be living in Port Seton and Headteacher of Prestonpans Infant School. What excites me about working in schools is the opportunity to nurture children, families and communities to learn and to celebrate life and learning. Since 2005, I have been inspired by the community of Burmese refugees in Mae Sot, Thailand, who struggle against incredible odds to give the best education possible to their children. I've been honoured to spend time with them each summer and pray the changes in Burma will give freedom to her people.
