A Time for Thanksgiving
Reverend Brooks joined us as usual, although via video link from his vicarage, as the school tuned in for the annual Harvest Assembly.
With a heart-warming message and props, Reverend Brooks from St Mary & All Saints Church illustrated the importance of giving back and helping others, and discussed how the School’s Harvest collection for the One Can Trust is so vital. The boys were also transported to One Can Trust’s High Wycombe warehouse to be shown how the collection will benefit families in the local community.
Year 8 musicians also joined forces to create a performance in which the Year 8 Jazz Band and Singers beautifully performed ‘Harvest Moon’. Angelic solos from Nathan and Joshua , as well as stunning singing from from Thomas McL, Thomas and Barnaby delighted all who watched. The singers, conducted by Mrs Watson, were accompanied by Mr Gater on the piano, with some lovely brass playing from Ralph and Thomas.
At Davenies, we foster in the boys a sense of service to others and it was a fantastic opportunity for them reflect how their support can help others.
