Primary school pupils at a West Norfolk school celebrated harvest festival by thinking of others.

Staff at Reffley Community School asked for donations this year for King’s Lynn Food Bank after a visit from a representative who spoke at a school assembly.

Key Stage One teacher Laura Curtis said letters went to parents who were asked for food donations.

“We were really overwhelmed. We had loads of food, some parents even brought in carrier bags full.

“We had tins, packets and biscuits,” she said.

A harvest festival assembly was conducted last week by pupils  aged from five to seven to the rest of the school and parents were invited into school to watch.

Miss Curtis said donations from previous harvest festival celebrations had gone to the Purfleet Trust in Lynn, the Salvation Army and St Faith’s Church, Gaywood.

Children and staff at Wormegay Church of England Primary School held a harvest-themed fashion show.

They used vegetables to make hats and held a church service.
