The annual ELC Biggest Breakfast is one of the ways the ELC of connects with our families and the community. The breakfast also provides an opportunity for our families to enjoy each other’s company in a social setting. The breakfast allows an opportunity for the children to learn about service in the community and how they can contribute to that service.
We invited ELC families to share with us in raising money for a charity. This year the money raised will be donated to Harmony Reins, a local animal shelter which rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes lost, sick or injured animals. During class time, discussions have focussed on “Harmony Reins”, and the way in which the children can support the charity for example, how we care for animals and that they are a lifelong commitment.
This year has seen the biggest breakfast yet, nearly 150 parents and children attending. The morning saw ELC and Junior School staff serving breakfast to our families, who I am sure were pleased to have breakfast taken out of their busy morning schedule. For the first time a guest from the charity, Catherine Grayson was able to come to the breakfast to speak about the work conducted by the shelter and to thank the Tintern ELC community for their donations. It is hoped that Catherine will be able to attend an assembly to accept the proceeds from the breakfast.
Thank you to all the families for your continued support of this important event in the ELC calendar and to the staff for once again working hard to make our ELC Big Breakfast a success.
An update on how much money raised and how it will be presented, will be posted when finalised.
