  • Thursday 22 October 2020 Harvest Festival 2020 An important date in the Borough Academy calendar each year is Harvest Festival. Harvest Festival is a time to work with our local community partners and support them with small contributions to local food banks. Each year this helps our students make a very real contribution to the local community and reflect on how they are able to realise our motto “Serve and Obey.” This year our donations went to the Mana Day Centre and the Oasis Hub Waterloo. Both food banks were incredibly grateful to the generosity of our community and extended a huge thank you on behalf of everyone that is receiving donations.
