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.

To celebrate National Science Week, the Harvest High School Science students participated in a variety of activities. The week started with the grade 10 Laboratory Assistants demonstrating chemistry experiments to the grade 6 class. On Tuesday during break we screened the movie Interstellar in the Science Laboratory. The highlight for many students was our guest speaker on Wednesday; Mrs Pulleng Moleko-Boyce, a PhD fellow of Chemistry from NMU. Mrs Moleko-Boyce spoke about her journey in science and her research in recovery of precious metals from recycled materials. Her visit honoured Women in Science since it coincided with Women's Month. The week ended with grade 11 Science students launching rockets on the playing field during break.

On Monday, 23 July 2018, the Grade 8s went to Cubata in Lorraine as part of the Enrichment Programme. We were privileged to have the restaurant to ourselves, as Cubata does not actually open to the public in the mornings. The Grade 8s got to meet and interact with the owner of Cubata, Bruno. He told them all about owning your own business and the ins and outs of running a restaurant. After taking a tour of the kitchen, learning about the concept of an honesty fridge and asking Bruno numerous questions pertaining to entrepreneurship and running and restaurant, we were all then spoilt by Bruno’s culinary skills. The Grade 8s enjoyed a delicious lunch of Cubata’s famous ribs, chips and Portuguese rolls. It was a fun-filled outing filled with sticky fingers and marinade smiles.

On 23 July the grade 10 and 11 Science students enjoyed a coffee and science demonstration by Shaun and Chris from the Red Band Barista Academy. Who could have guessed how much chemistry is involved in a good cuppa. Most times we only think of caffeine as the main chemical in coffee, but we were introduced to a host of other chemicals responsible for the flavour and aroma of coffee. Upon tasting various brews, we learned about the chemical reactions that occur when hot water reacts with the ground coffee, releasing the carbon dioxide and producing carbonic acid. Our conversation lead to thinking about a variety of career opportunities in engineering, technology and chemistry within the coffee industry - from growing the beans, designing roasting equipment and improving the quality.

On 7 August 2018 the Grade 5 classes had the privilege of visiting the Air Force Museum in Port Elizabeth. The visit started off with a very interesting and enjoyable presentation loaded with information on the Air Force of South Africa. The learners saw videos and photos and had the opportunity to ask the tour guide questions. The Harvest pupils behaved well and their inquisitive behaviour shows that they are very smart children. After the presentation, the group walked around the museum, viewing the various aircraft. It ended with a tour to a separate hanger where the big planes are kept.

On Thursday the 26th of July, the Grade 3’s went to Animals in Wonderland. It was a wonderful day and we were blessed with lovely weather. We were greeted by Jeru, our guide, and Mia the owl standing proudly on her arm. The children got to see many different kinds of animals and birds that have been raised at Animals in Wonderland or that have been rescued. Some children were very excited to get to hold and snuggle with one of the Meerkats. Our tour was followed by a snake show, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all the children. Some brave children volunteered to hold the snakes! An obstacle course was the perfect ending to a lovely day.

Once again the Grade 2s were very blessed when they went to bless the Heatherbank Pre-School. The children greeted us with songs and smiles and made a lovely sweet treat for us. We handed over a collection of toiletries for their Christmas boxes and spent some time playing with them.

The Grade 2s were sitting quietly on their chairs wondering what was about to happen. Suddenly they heard a noise. Sirens were blaring and lights were flashing. The EMR ambulance came into the parking lot and the paramedics climbed out. What followed was an informative demonstration teaching the children how and why paramedics help us. For many children, seeing the inside of an ambulance, and learning about the equipment, made them feel safe knowing that, should they need it, the paramedics would quickly come and help them.

The NSRI came to visit the Grade 2s to teach us about Water Safety. Judy Venter, an NSRI volunteer taught the pupils how to make a P.L.A.N to be safe in the water. Pack a bag and prepare for your trip to the beach. Look for rip currents and danger. Ask an adult to watch you swim. Never swim alone and never use your hands to save someone. The pupils also learnt the number 10177 because they need to call an ambulance if someone is in danger in the sea. Everyone collected silver coins to make a donation to the NSRI to help them carry on with their important work. The NSRI are one of the groups of people who we are learning about who help us in our community.

Last week Tuesday, the Primary School was entertained by ´The Incredible Dog Show’. Lloyd, together with his diverse entourage of six beautiful and talented dogs, put on a marvellous show demonstrating amazing tricks and incredible skill. Pupils were also educated on the responsibility of being a pet owner and how to teach dogs new tricks. The pupils laughed, cheered and sang enthusiastically as the dogs performed and amused each one in a show filled with love, passion and helpful life lessons.

We were delighted that so many grade 10s applied to be the representative of the JCC. The speeches were of an exceptional standard and anyone of these students would have been a worthy representative of Harvest Christian School. However, the teachers had the difficult choice of choosing only one. But in the end the decision was unanimous to appoint Zenande Gilbert as the junior representative. Jessica Lock now becomes the senior representative, replacing Kaelyn De Vos, who is in matric.

On 3 August 2018 our dashing Matric class and their dates arrived at La Colline, a venue that is set in the lush greenery and unspoiled natural beauty of the Theescombe area, overlooking the city lights. Although it was a freezing cold evening, hearts were warm with joy and excitement for the much anticipated event. Parents and students braved the cold to support the Matrics as the procession of cars and limos arrived. Upon arrival, the Matrics were welcomed by a red-carpet entrance, and the Grade 11 students in masquerade masks. The guests were treated to a delicious three-course meal and a special celebration of each matric pupil. Each Matric was given a personalized, hand-made mask as well as a tribute prepared by a Grade 11 pupil.
