Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Everyone at The Leverton Junior School
Thank you to all the parents who came to our Carol Concert in the Abbey Church on Tuesday. The children sang beautifully and made all the staff, and I am sure parents, proud. Well done everyone! On Wednesday and Thursday our school held it’s first Pantomime. The children were brilliant (Oh no they weren’t! Oh yes they were!).

We have now received the money from the lottery grant and the Outside Gym equipment has been ordered. The work should start on 16 January.

The PTA will earn money for every kilogram of clothes it collects. So please do not throw out any of your unwanted clothes and save them ready for the collection early next term.
