Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Everyone at The Leverton Junior School

 

Headteacher’s Comments

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!).

First Day Back

We return to school on Tuesday 3 January 2012 at 8:45am.

Bags2Bag Fundraising

In the New Year the PTA will be organising a used clothes collection scheme.  Every child will receive a plastic bag, similar to ones that come through your front door.  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.
