Ark Blacklands Primary Academy celebrated their Harvest Festival with a celebration assembly for the whole school. Headteacher, Lorraine Clarke, was delighted with the array of food that the children brought in for those less fortunate than themselves. The assembly was focussed on thankfulness and gratitude, with a representative from each class presenting to the academy what they were thankful for in their lives. These ideas ranged from clean running water to our very own families and friends. We would like to thank all the children for their wonderful singing and food contributions which will be donated to two worthy causes: the Hastings Foodbank and Hastings Seaview Project, helping local families.
