Cultural Activities

Cultural Period

Cultural activities add an important dynamic to our pupils education and development. An hour is dedicated to cultural activities every Friday. We strive to encourage each child to learn new skills and challenge them through the various cultural activities provided:

  • Drama
  • Public Speaking
  • Chess
  • Debating (Grade 7)
  • Dancing
  • General Knowledge

During the second term of the year the cultural period involves learning skills through a number of hobbies on offer. These choice activities include:

  • Photography
  • Scrap booking and card making
  • Lego building
  • Knitting

Music

Music plays a very active role in the lives of our pupils. Harvest pupils have the opportunity, through individualized tuition, to learn to play an instrument. Harvest proudly hosts a number of music concerts each year including beginner pupils. Pupils perform regularly at the weekly assemblies on Fridays, whilst many are included in the orchestra, string ensemble and the recorder ensamble. The Primary School boasts three worship teams who lead worship during the primary School assemblies.

Worship Teams

Pupils who demonstrate talent, ability and the appropriate attitude and commitment are allowed to contribute towards this very important aspect of the school. These teams form the foundation on which relevant skills are built, contributing to the enhancement of the worship as they mature into participating in the High School worship teams.


Eisteddfod

An internal Eisteddfod is held in each grade during the course of the third term. Each pupil (G1-7) is given the opportunity to do a presentation from one of the following areas:

  • Prose, 
  • Poetry (Narrative or Lyrical), 
  • Story Telling, 
  • Reading, 
  • Public Speaking 
  • or Mime (Grade 7 only)

Performances are adjudicated with Gold, Silver or Bronze certificate being awarded accordingly.


Worship Dance (private)

Harvest pupils have an opportunity to be trained in ‘worship dance’ at Harvest Church.


Harvest has talent

‘Harvest Has Talent’, is a talent show organized and run by the pupils to highlight and profile the numerous God-given talents in our school. This provides a valuable opportunity for pupils to perform on stage. 


Make a Joyful Noise

All Primary School classes select and perform a song, prose or dance item. Many life-skills are learnt through the process and support the school’s aim of getting all pupils on stage at least once a year.


Choir

Harvest has a Foundation Phase Choir (Grade 1-3′s) and an Intermediate Phase Choir (Grade 4-7′s). They have to learn and perform a number of enjoyable songs on a regular basis. A number of pupils go on to represent Harvest in the Eastern Cape Children’s Choir.
