Christmas Fair

December 13, 2018

We hope that you enjoyed the Christmas Fair last Friday and many thanks to everyone for their kind and extremely generous donations. Thank you also to all the parents and staff who volunteered to help run the event and make it so special and such a success.

Congratulations to the Havenga family on winning the 1st prize hamper in the raffle. (All winners not at the draw have been notified.)

We are still finalising the accounts but it looks like we made over £1900 for the school which is fantastic! Thank you for your continued support.


Christmas Shopping

December 7, 2018

If you’re doing any of your Christmas shopping online then please use Easy Fundraising and raise money for
the school for FREE at the same time.

How it Works: Instead of going directly to a retailer’s website, first go to EasyFundraising and choose the retailer you want to shop with – then everything you spend with that retailer earns a donation for The Lea Primary School.

It’s completely free to use and your shopping won’t cost you a penny more.

Nursery and Reception – Nativity

December 7, 2018

The lead up to Christmas has well and truly begun, with a fabulous performance by our Nursery and Reception pupils in their Nativity ‘Away in a Manger’ – each and every one of them were absolute superstars!

Thank you to our Year 6 helpers; Alex with the music, and Noah, Lena and Asma with the props. They were a great help and very much appreciated! Also, thank you to Mr Jelfs for providing the straw bales. Lastly, thank you to all our members of staff who helped the children rehearse for and give such a wonderful performance.

Christmas Post Box

December 6, 2018

The postbox is now in the entrance hall from next until the end of term. Children are invited to post their Christmas cards to classmates and friends in the school. These will be distributed every day by our older pupils.

Please ensure that your child puts both the name and class on the envelope to make it easier for our postboys and postgirls to sort.
