The Lord is the Master of our school

Philosophy statement
At Hyland House School we recognise that God, the Creator and Sustainer of the earth, and the entire universe, is the source of knowledge and wisdom. He created us in perfect humanity. As a result of sin, humans lost this original state. We believe that through Christian Education, with faith in Christ, we can be restored in the image of our Maker.

Through the educational programme offered at our school, our goal is to prepare children for effective citizenship on this earth and for rewarding citizenship in the new earth.

Hyland House School Presents…..International Harvest Celebration 2018

Hyland House School International Harvest Celebration

Harvest had an international flavour at Hyland House School this year.

On 19th October, the Years 5&6 children became global ambassadors, reporting fun facts and news about each of the countries represented by families and teachers of the school.

The Years 3&4 class told the audience that they were rejecting a harvest of killing, lying, hurting others and stealing and instead were claiming a harvest of the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

The younger children told about the One who is able to make us reap a great harvest by singing, “Our God is a Great Big God”.

Years 1&2, along with the Early Years children, gave a dramatic presentation of the book, “Handa’s Surprise”.

To continue the global theme, all children were involved in a short play about an international market with a Jamaican influence. Authentic scenery, accents, clothes, dances and games enthralled the audience but Year 2 children singing and dramatizing “Linstead Market” resulted in spontaneous laughter and applause from parents.

Parents and friends also played their part in this international Harvest Celebration, by cooking a banquet of their national dishes. A variety of meat and fish dishes were provided as well as ginger beer, Jollof rice, spinach rice, callaloo, ackee, green banana salad, fried dumplings and much, much more. The gastronomical feast was enjoyed by all.

During the program, parents and children had the opportunity to add mini bags of money to the “village tree”. £347 was collected and sent to Stoke Newington Church to assist in their community project of feeding the homeless.
