From The Principal

 Staffing

 This week Mrs Douglas was offered another teaching position for 2018. We are sad to see her go, as she is a very valued member of staff, but we understand that we can’t keep everyone for ever. The staff wish her good luck and thank her for her work on the School’s Finance and Executive Committee, being a Curriculum leader in the school as well as an excellent teacher. Mrs Sue Fuller will be joining us for 2018 as Esther’s replacement.

Fete

The fete was a fantastic fundraising event organised by our super P&C.  A lot of work happened on the day and leading up to it, especially by Mrs Ford. The school is very appreciative of all the efforts to support the school. We use the funds raised for valuable projects that are extras for the school. This year we were able to re-carpet several rooms keeping the school looking fresh and nice.

 Wheatley Cup

 On Friday 8 December Oberthur Primary School will be coming to Leeming Primary School to compete in the annual Wheatley Cup. This is an opportunity for the students to mingle and represent their school. The teams are composed mainly of Year 6’s and a few Year 5’s. Both schools will be having a combined Subway lunch, kindly organised by Alanna Birkbeck.

1:1 Laptop Programme

After school on Wednesday 6 December we will be holding an information session regarding next year’s laptop programme. If you are a Year 3 parent who wishes more information regarding their usage, please feel free to attend.

LEAC

 Each Year the school has run a LEAC (Leeming Extension And Challenge) Programme . This innovative tool selects students who would benefit from working with like types and being challenged in different ways.

This year the Leeming Extension and Challenge students have worked with Ms Thomson on a range of fun and challenging tasks. This week the students were given the opportunity to work with Dr Andy Kirker. They have had their thinking challenged with a complex game based on our theme of Sustainability
