Help the committee decide on what social and fundraising events to hold during the 2017/18 school year and remember, all parents are welcome!
The autumn term last year featured fantastic events run by St Leonards parents. Here’s a flavour of some of our favourites:
On a gloriously sunny September day we ushered in the autumn term with a back-to-school barbecue. Parents and pupils new and not-so-new had a chance to meet and chat and enjoyed fabulous food, picnic-ing in style on St Leonards Grass.
Children of all ages played ball games, made energetic use of the bouncy castle and the little ones were entertained by a team of sixth-form face-painters as well as by a balloon sculptor.
Junior School Pumpkin party
It was a spooky evening at the Parents Association Pumpkin Party with over 90 Junior School children dressed in a variety of excellent costumes, some scarier than others! The children had fun in the Main School Hall playing a variety of organised games and participating in activities such as bobbing for apples and pin the wart on the witch. Head Boy Jamie MacAulay and Head Girl Elizabeth Crockatt chose the best costumes and the most creatively carved pumpkins, awarding the winners with prizes and certificates to take home. Thank you for your attendance and looking scary!
The Junior School Christmas Fair took place on Saturday 9 December in the Junior School. This event is a festive favourite, which the children look forward to each year. In the main hall the boys and girls set up their own stalls with a variety of different types of activities from selling arts and crafts to engaging other children to play games or other activities. All proceeds from the market will be donated to Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance. Thank you to all family and friends who joined us on a cold winter's morning!
