16 pupils from Grade 10 and 11 successfully completed the Toastmasters Youth Leadership Programme this term, run by the Algoa Toastmasters. The purpose of this programme is to equip high school pupils with the skills to run a meeting and to develop public speaking. The eight sessions include prepared and impromptu speeches from the participants, as well as educational input from the facilitators. The programme concluded with a graduation ceremony and breakfast, organised by the pupils. The facilitators were particularly impressed by the high standard of speeches delivered by our pupils. The winning speech was delivered by Jessica Lock, who will represent Harvest in the regional competition next term. Hannah Terblanche and Nathan Seton-Smith placed second and third respectively.

The Grade 2s enjoyed an exciting and informative outing to Kragga Kamma Game Park. We were treated to a game drive where Aunty Lisa taught us all about the wildlife. We saw inquisitive ostrich, beautiful cheetah, majestic giraffes, buffalo, wildebeest, bontebok and many more animals. We even happened to spot the black backed jackal racing across the park, after he had escaped from his enclosure! What a wonderful way to learn about God's creation. His attention to detail is amazing.

On Friday the Grade 7s got together for a time of fellowship after a tough two weeks of exams. We had a good night of entertainment as some of the girls and boys decided to surprise the teachers and their peers with a fashion show. After the fashion show, the "braaiing" commenced. Everybody stood around the fire braai-ing their own meat and then enjoyed the food, while various conversations were taking place. After all the bellies were full, we started our "getting-to-know-you" game. They had two minutes to talk to each of their classmates before they had to rotate. At first, there were some awkward silences but not long after everybody was enjoying getting to know each other even better. I would just like to say, thank you to Mr Vermooten, Mr Bezuidenhout and Mr O'Kennedy for braai-ing.

On 30 and 31 May 2018, the Music Department hosted the annual Beginner Music Concerts. This was a showcase for all the Primary School music pupils, as well as our Junior Primary Choir, Senior Primary Choir, Marimba Band and Guitar Ensemble. The performances featured many blossoming musicians and it was a perfect opportunity for pupils to experience playing in front of an audience for the first time. The colourful lighting sponsored by Mr. Derrick Badenhorst, coupled with the beautiful roses and candles on the piano, set the atmosphere for both evenings. One of the great things about the Intermediate Phase Concert was the first song where the audience could participate with the guitar ensemble. The lively marimba band also got the audience involved in dancing and hand-clapping.

On Friday, 25 May, Harvest High School collected and delivered food parcels for some of the residents at Buffelsfontein Old Age Home. Considering we were only able to do one delivery this term, some of the students went that extra mile and brought additional items. A huge thank you to all involved. A tin of vegetables or a tube of toothpaste may seem like very little, but when those parcels are put to together we are making a difference.

On Friday, 18 May, Harvest High School spent the afternoon playing Bingo with some of the residents of Buffelsfontein Old Age Home. It was a great afternoon filled with laughter as one can become quite competitive while playing this game. The afternoon also includes having tea and some delicious goodies while the students chat to the residents.

On Thursday, 10 May, Harvest Christian School participated in an international charity event called One Day Without Shoes. One Day Without Shoes Day was created by the Californian company Tom’s Shoes to encourage people to pay more attention to the numerous problems a lack of shoes can cause in the lives of impoverished children. Each child of Harvest donated at least one pair of shoes and then spent the school day walking around barefoot.

What a wonderful celebration of diversity, beauty and motherhood. The ladies tea was a wonderful event where women interacted, laughed and were inspired to come together as mothers. During key conversations we were reminded of our core purpose. As mothers we have the high calling of building into our children and families the priority of seeking God and His ways. This great privilege can often be forgotten in the daily struggles and mundane activities that detract and distract. Sometimes simply seeking acknowledgement and success can hinder women from actively understanding and following God’s simple command – to seek Him first and obey His commands. As mothers we were once again reminded of our need for each other and our desperate need for the Spirit’s enabling and infilling.

Imagine what life would have been like almost two centuries ago ... well, the grade 4s were able to do just that for an hour this week when we paid a visit to Number 7 Castle Hill in Central. This beautiful house is one of the oldest in Port Elizabeth and has been furnished and decorated as it would have been in the 1800s. The children were fascinated by all the interesting items on display and had fun pumping water from the well, embossing paper to make a seal for letters, and trying to coax a tune from the old harmonium. Although there was no electricity or modern conveniences such as an indoor bathroom in those days, there were many other useful things to make life comfortable. We enjoyed our visit immensely.

The Grade 3s had a very enjoyable outing to Sanccob where they learnt all about shipwrecks. After the lesson they all got dressed up as survivors, warriors, lions or elephants. The survivors walked along the beach and were ambushed by the other 3 groups. The children found a treasure map and proceeded to find the hidden treasure which was a chest filled with chocolates. When we returned to Sanccob the children spent time watching the penguins.

On 19 and 20 May 2018 the Harvest High School Choir joined a massed choir of over 200 voices at the Last Night of the Proms. This is an annual event in aid of St Francis Hospice in collaboration with the East Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the inimitable Richard Cock. What a wonderful experience this was for our choristers, as well as the teachers – Miss Olivier, Mr Duncombe and Mrs Rodger. Thank you to the parents who attended, as well as to Mr Le Feuvre for supporting us on Sunday afternoon.

The Grade 2s enjoyed a fun outing to Heatherbank Preschool. We donated shoes that we had collected to the children and spent some time playing with them. Everyone enjoyed a lovely, active morning. What a blessing to be a blessing.

Praise the name of the Lord our God! He is good; all the time. On Saturday 11 May 2018 at 7:30am, thirteen of our grade 7 pupils made a public declaration and were baptised in the pool at Pollock Beach. What a glorious time for pupils, parents and staff. We were so blessed to be a part of the special and blessed occasion. At mini-chapel the Wednesday before the baptisms, each candidate gave a personal testimony before the school. Revelation 12:11 says; ‘And they have conquered him (the enemy) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.’ A testimony that can never be taken from them. God is working in the lives of these young people and it is our privilege to be partnering with the parents in helping them to know Jesus more. Our sincere thanks to Pastor Dave Walland.
