The Harvest Festival is usually celebrated in September though sometimes it falls in October around the full moon that falls closest to the autumn equinox, on a Sunday. It is the time of year in which we gather mature crops from the fields and marks the end of the growing season. The UK does not have a national holiday for Harvest Festival but many churches and schools will encourage others to donate food to give to people in need.
Hillcrest is celebrating the Harvest Festival by encouraging our school community to donate food to support the work of the Black Country Foodbank.
Hillcrest School in partnership with Halesowen College are planning new adult part time programmes - daytime, evening and Saturday morning study options available.
An increasing number of pupils come to school on a can of energy drink instead of a good breakfast; stimulant-containing energy drinks have no place in the diets of children or adolescents.
Progress Evening for Year 11 pupils will be held on Thursday 24 October 2013 in the new dining hall.
Will you help the Foodbank to help others?
