The Grade 7s held the name of Harvest high while visiting the senior citizens at Nazareth House. They had collected items to be donated to the ‘trendy” Second Hand Shop on the premises of Nazareth House. Thank you, parents, for your generous donations. The children interacted with the residents by chatting, helping them play bingo in a designated sitting room, and lovingly giving hand massages to the surprised ladies. I was so proud of the mature way in which they interacted with the old folk, many of whom were unable to communicate well. The Jesus inside them was evident. Matthew 25:40 And the King will say to them. “Assuredly I say to you, in as much as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me’”

From the 3-5 April, my class and I had an amazing opportunity to go to African Imprint in Kirkwood for our Grade 6 Camp. I must say it was an unforgettable experience. Camp was filled with great fun, excitement and of course, plenty of giggling. We had many fun activities to fill our days, but the ones I thoroughly enjoyed were the zip lining and canoeing. I learnt a lot about teamwork at camp and I also learnt about my weak points and strong points and made new friends. The food – I can’t even begin to explain how scrumptious the food was, and don’t even let me get started on the jelly and custard. When it got dark, all I wanted to do was to go and lie down on the comfortable beds in the dormitories. I thoroughly enjoyed camp.

This year the grade 6’s went on an exciting leadership and teambuilding camp to African Imprint in Kirkwood. We left first thing on Wednesday, 3 April 2019 and arrived at a beautiful venue situated right next to a citrus grove on the tranquil Sundays River. We were warmly welcomed by the two lovely facilitators and the kind lady who runs African Imprint. We unpacked, divided into teams and from then the activities began rolling out. We did many challenging and exciting things that we may never have done without encouragement from our friends, such as zip lining, canoeing, an obstacle course, fire starting, building shelters, swimming and of course, competitive games. My personal favourites were taking apart and building a canon and best of all, zip lining over the river.

The SASMT PE Mini Maestro's Music Competition is for musicians from beginner level to Grade 1. It is a well organised, fun event where young musicians get to showcase what they have learnt in a non-competitive atmosphere. Each musician wears a special t-shirt when performing and is awarded a certificate. This year we had 12 musicians who played at the event and Lulette Matolengwe received a medal for Stage Presence. Well done to all who participated.

The Grade 4 classes are really enjoying learning about the history of Port Elizabeth. We recently had fun at the Donkin Reserve, where the children went on a scavenger hunt. They discovered all sorts of interesting things about our city, past and present. This week they visited 7 Castle Hill, the oldest house in Port Elizabeth. It was a fascinating step back in time to the Victorian era, and the children were enthralled by all the old and interesting items on display.

On the 24 May 2019, the grandparents were treated to a scrumptious tea followed by a concert, called Jungle Friends. The children took great delight in singing and dancing and telling the story about a lost and lonely elephant, who discovered that Jesus was his best friend. The grandparents then spent some time in their grandchildren’s classes. The morning was thoroughly enjoyed by all. What a privilege to have our precious grandparents visit us.

On Saturday the 18th of May, Harvest families took their place at the starting line, baring the icy chill of autumn winds and put their game faces on. Line up they did. A prayer rang out, and the gun exploded. Together they set off in style to finish a 4,6 km walk, run or mix of both. There were serious contenders, finishing in less than 3:20 min per kilometre. Then there were participants who ran chatting and encouraging those they passed. We even had a participant who pushed a pram with a toddler and a puppy inside! Finally we had our social walkers who smiled and chatted together all the way. Yet race everyone did, amid laughs and smiles and suddenly, what had begun with a burst, was over with a smile and probably a few sighs of relief.

What a privilege it was for Harvest Christian School to host Andre’ and Jenny Webster who informed and educated pupils, staff and parents in the city on LGBTQI Identity issues and sexuality development from a Biblical worldview. All who were part of any of the sessions have been empowered and equipped with sound Biblical knowledge and truth.

After weeks of preparation and advertising, the 7 May 2019 finally arrived. It was with great anticipation that all the male staff of HCS arrived at the Pre-School Hall to start fires and started with the preparation of the light meal that was to be served. The camaraderie was palpable – working side by side to butter rolls and braai sausage. All this worked towards solidifying the co-operation and interaction between the male staff. The dads who arrived were not only treated to warm hospitality, but also to a delicious roll and soft drink. After friendly interaction, we all assembled in the hall to be challenged and encouraged by an excellent talk by Mr Vernon De Vos, the dad of our 2018 Head Girl, Kaelyn.

The Grade 5 pupils had their first outing of the year by spending the day at the Science and Technology Centre in Uitenhage. We were met by friendly staff who shared some incredible information on science, making the pupils feel welcomed and even more enthusiastic for what awaited them. The attention of the pupils was held by fun experiments that left most of them speechless and in awe. The pupils were given a chance to explore the centre, resulting in an increase in admiration for the workings of science and technology.

On 23 April the music department held their annual music concert called Ripples of Sound. It was a great evening with a variety of musical items, giving us a glimpse of what these current and future musicians are doing. The atmosphere for the evening was set with a lovely rendition of Talis' Canon and Zum Gali Gali by the primary school choir, lead by Ms Rossouw. The string ensemble, lead by Mrs Du Toit, showed great skill on their instruments. There were a number of excellent individual performances and the evening ended with a wonderful drum item by Hannah Terblanche.

We set off on our beach hike in glorious sunshine and a slight breeze. The Grade 3s found many treasures from the sea as they walked along the sea shore. They also helped keep the beach clean by picking up manmade pollution on the way. The wind became stronger while we were on the beach but it did not dampen the children’s enthusiasm. We stayed on the sheltered side most of the time. When we ventured to the lighthouse we had to contend with the sand stinging our legs and blowing into our eyes, almost flying off like Mary Poppins! The children had lots of fun walking on the rocks and exploring the rock pools.

On Wednesday, 13 March 2019, the Grade 6 classes set out for their first visit of the year to the Kuyga Community Crèche. The Crèche has about 45 children aged between eighteen months and six years. The Harvest children quickly latched onto the little people and then they began to play - running, sliding, kicking balls, singing and carrying those who needed a little extra love. Thank you to our wonderful parents who so generously donated food, toilet paper and cleaning supplies. We look forward to all the visits yet to come.

On 13 March 2019 the Grade 2s went to visit Heatherbank Pre-Primary School. We had all collected items which they needed, including toilet paper, to give to them. It was wonderful to see the Grade 2 pupils beginning to understand how we can show God's love by blessing others. Donating items, playing with the Heatherbank children and telling them about Jesus are practical things that our children can do for God. This is a school in need of our support and help and we are privileged as Grade 2s to be able to sow into these precious children's lives.

On Monday 4 March 2019, over 120 prefects and head students from schools throughout Nelson Mandela Bay gathered at The Hub at Harvest Christian Church for the Annual Leadership Seminar hosted by Harvest. The evening was the culmination of months of planning by the Counsellor team and featured four guest speakers who formed part of a discussion panel aimed at discussing topics based on leadership. The evening was hosted by our two Head Students and a welcoming address was made by Mr Vermooten to all the schools present. After a fun ice breaker, the speakers introduced themselves and gave a five to ten-minute speech on their experiences with regards to leadership.
