Next year his students will perform at the Festival of Music on 2 March 2019 in front of thousands of spectators.

The Grade 7 Farewell was held on Saturday 24 November at the Hub. The venue was unrecognizable, thanks to Sam Jensen and her team of moms. As we entered, the foyer was decorated with a path of candle lights and bougainvillea blooms and overhead was a beautifully draped archway. Inside the venue the ceiling was alight with "starry" fairy lights and the tables beautifully set with candles, jugs of sparkling juice, and colourfully wrapped gift chocolates. The table cloths were sprinkled with sparkly stars. The theme of the evening was 'The Greatest Showman', with all the stars representing the children, each one being a star in his or her own right. The moms were our waitresses, dressed in uniform t-shirts, emblazoned with shiny stars on the front of each and sporting white eye-masks.

On Friday the Grade 2's visited their Heatherbank friends for the last time this year. We took some items we had collected for their Christmas boxes. The staff and children were so grateful! It was lovely time of singing and playing together. The children were all quite sad to say goodbye to each other when we left. How wonderful to have the opportunity to bless Heatherbank this year.

Having learnt about rock pool creatures in class this term, the Grade 1s headed off to the beach for some first-hand investigation. Although it was extremely windy, the children enjoyed exploring and collecting treasures.

The Grade 1 and 2 camp was a great success this year. It was well attended and the weather played along. While tents were pitched, children excitedly ran around and played together. It was great to see the dads chatting around the braai fires. After supper, games, campfire songs, stories and braaied marshmallows, we were all ready for bed. Early morning coffee and rusks were followed by devotions.

It was a great day spending time with everyone at Nazareth House. The Grade 7 boys played Bingo and the girls gave out hand massages and enjoyed the stories the ladies shared with them.

The Grade 3s went to Oceanview Forest for their camp on 1 November 2018 and it was an absolutely wonderful time! From the moment we arrived, our days were filled with activities, games, swimming, obstacle courses and night hikes. I am sure that the sudden downpour of rain during the night hike was a fun highlight for the children and they all arrived back at the camp, soaked! We had a very special time of worship on the Thursday night and by the time bedtime came, everyone was exhausted. Friday morning began with a devotion time where each child and their “camp buddy” spent time with God. It was a precious sight to see them all spread out across the camp with their Bibles, praying together.

The Grade 11s organised and hosted, a very successful trivia evening as a fundraiser for the 2019 Matric Dance. We are proud to report that two teachers' teams tied for the second place. Many thanks to everyone for making the evening memorable, especially, to the sponsors: Suki Sushi & Asian Cuisine, Vovo Telo, Poppin Hair Studio and Jean Joubert Salon. Special thanks to Triple M Music for the fun- filled evening. See you all next year!

On 25 October 2018, the Grade 5 class visited the very adventurous camp terrain, The Bush Pig Adventures. They arrived there on a warm sunny Thursday morning, and were greeted by the friendly facilitators and the guide, Kevin; later on to be called Mr Bean by the pupils. He was called Mr Bean as he rewarded or penalized the pupils with all kinds of ‘beans’ for whatever good ‘or bad’ they were doing in a group context. The Grade 5s learnt about taking care of the environment by getting ‘beans’ whenever they picked up litter and threw it in the bin. They did many team work activities that really brought out the best (and the worst) in everybody. I believe all the tough group activities really made the pupils stronger and built up their character.

It was all dancing; laughing, eating and girl talk at Friday's Girls Night Out. The Grade 5-7 girls and some teachers got together for a massive slumber party. The theme this year was Daughters of the King and we were blessed to have Stacey Barron come and share her heart and journey about accepting yourself and embracing your inner diamond.

It was a perfect day for our termly Community Service outing to Vistarus. The children in the crèche at Vistarus, as well as our Harvest children, played outside for about an hour. It was a blessing to watch the way the children played with each other. A few of the children from Vistarus were sad when it was time for us to leave. We also went on a tour of the recycling stations at Vistarus. Recycling is one way that Vistarus uses to bring in some money and at the same time they are looking after our environment.

Last week, the Grade 4s had a very successful camp in Alicedale. They did various fun activities like early morning exercise, tug-of-war, boeresport, adventure races, low ropes, dance and many more. They learnt about teamwork, manners, and respect for others in the process. The weather was absolutely perfect and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

We have been on an amazing journey with the grade 9 students, exploring the value of each person within the group. We have an incredible bunch of kids with so much energy and a zest for life. We have had our challenges, but that stems from a desire to be the best version of themselves they could possibly become. We all have a desire to fit in and be accepted, and that is normal for any teenager. We have therefore decided to run the Alpha Discipleship course with them, which tackles questions about faith and life in a non-threatening way. The Alpha course consists of 13 sessions. So far, we have covered two of the sessions, discovering who Jesus is. Some topics that will still be covered include: “Why did Jesus die?” “How can we have faith?” and “Why and how do I pray?”.

On Tuesday, 16 October 2018, Jessica Lock represented Harvest in the annual Toastmasters Regional Inter-Schools Competition at Alexander Road High School. There were 16 participants representing schools from across the Bay and the speeches were of an exceptionally high standard. Jess certainly did us proud with her poignant and moving speech entitled "The White Rose". Each of the participants received a certificate of participation at the end of the evening.

Our annual Inter-House Athletics Day took place on Thursday, 20 September 2018 at the Westbourne Oval. It was a great way to end off the third term. We were fortunate to have lovely weather, which allowed for a great day of competition. This year there were a total of 14 records broken. De Necker won the Spirit Trophy and Vorster were the winning house on the day. Well done to all the athletes who participated and thank you to all the staff for making the day a success

Games Evening is a highlight on the calendar for the Primary School pupils. The Grade 7’s really took ownership of their evening this year, knowing that the finances they raised would go towards their outreach to Keiskamma Hoek at the end of the fourth term. Despite the rain that fell, the pupils and parents arrived and were certainly entertained with the Grade 7’s having 18 different games available for their fellow Harvesters to play. 3 620 games were played during the evening with every person who played a game receiving a prize.

On 2 September 2018, a group of Grade 11 students ventured on the annual History and Art Tour, touring different places and towns outside of Port Elizabeth. The tour began with the arrival at Knysna on Sunday, which was followed by a relaxed evening settling into the satisfactory accommodation at Jembjo's. As the tour days progressed, the Grade 11s took part in numerous activities which included viewing artwork at Bottega Art Gallery at De Oude Meul, visiting crocodile and ostrich farms, riding camels and touring the Owl House in the peaceful Nieu Bethesda. One of the major highlights was visiting the beautiful Cango Caves, which were near our exceptional accommodation at De Oude Meul.

Both dads and daughters spruced up two weeks ago to attend the Dads and Daughter Dinner. Candlelight and soft music created the perfect atmosphere for a very special date. The delightful duos viewed video clips on how precious the relationship is between dad and daughter and were given an opportunity to discuss matters of the heart. Sparkling apple juice, gourmet burgers and chips, followed by ice cream and hot chocolate sauce were served by enthusiastic teachers, who ‘oohed’ and ‘aahed’ over beautiful outfits and treasured moments shared between Daddies and their Princesses. How wonderful it was to be part of an event where so much love was shown and felt; a time when one knows that our Heavenly Father’s heart was deeply touched.

This year’s camp was an adrenaline adventure for all. The pupils enjoyed the outdoors and, from zip-lining to the big swing, great fun was had by all. Some had to dig deep to be brave enough to go not only on a physical adventure but a spiritual adventure too. They all had to step out of their comfort zone to enjoy a thrilling ride, much like in their relationship with God, where they sometimes have to say, God I am willing to step off this platform to go on an adventure with you, having faith in His goodness to know that His plans are really good and fun! On Saturday we were treated to a tour of the orchards and pupils could see the hard work that goes into farming. Worship on Saturday night was on fire and many pupils were touched by the Holy Spirit.

On Tuesday, 4 September 2018, the Grade 6 classes visited the Volkswagen Factory. They were taken on a tour of the factory where they saw the whole car manufacturing process. Thereafter, they explored the car museum which has examples of many of the models produced by VW in years gone by as well as a pictorial history of the factory. This area also has several car simulators which the children were able to drive.

On Wednesday 12 September 2018 the Grade 1s visited Rautenbach's Apiary. A lesson was given under a lovely netted area. It was exciting to see the bees and honeycomb up close through the netting. We got to taste honey straight from the comb. Two children were chosen to dress up as bee-keepers and very bravely handled the beehives! We learnt a lot about this very interesting insect.
