Ridge Church School has reached out to four institutions through its annual harvest and outreach programme at the school’s church auditorium.

The programme, with a two pronged mission- to reach out to the less-privileged in society and to drum home to the children the need to reach out and thank God, has become a key  feature on the school’s calendar.

The four beneficiary institutions include Ridge Church Hospital, Akropong School For The Visually Impaired, Children’s Hospital and the Lighthouse Orphanage.

Pupils of the school through the help of their parents presented various items ranging from food to toiletries as their thanksgiving offering for the beneficiary institutions.

The Headmistress of the school, Afua Dake, told the media that the exercise was to inculcate into the children the act of sharing and giving to their neighbours, with particular reference to the less-privileged.

She said, ‘We do this every year and it has caught on well with both the parents and their wards, the lessons drawn from the exercise are good. As you rightly heard from the reverend minister that we should consider our  neighbours first before ourselves.

‘You saw somebody bringing just an orange and other basket full, when we put them together, it is very nice. That is the beauty of the whole thing. It is also an occasion we thank God for His mercies and how far He has brought us as a school,’ she added.

She expressed thanks to parents and institutions that supported them in diverse ways to reach out to the four beneficiary institutions.

HFC representatives supported the programme with a special cash donation to the school.
