At Aldenham Prep Riyadh, the students were celebrating Harvest Festival last week, a festival with its roots in ancient Britain. Since it’s traditionally a time to celebrate the food you have and share it with others, the children brought in food to donate to local charities.

You can read both the blogs here.
