Out of his very busy schedule, Father Christmas took time this week to visit the very good children of Greenleaf Primary School. The children were very keen to help him and his elves making toys, as he seemed under a lot of pressure to get everything finished by Christmas Day. Father Christmas was so impressed, he gave every little boy and girl at Greenleaf a lovely present – to be saved for Christmas Day!
KS1 have delighted parents and children alike today, with their dual Christmas Stories – “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and “The Nativity”. All the children have worked extremely hard to learn their lines and to practise their routines and the result was an amazing performance.
Congratulations also to all the staff, who worked tirelessly to co-ordinate 150 children. Wow!
Merry Christmas to all!
Greenleaf’s annual Christmas Fair last Friday was a brilliant event – attended by more people than we thought it possible to squeeze into our two halls! From the chocolate tombola to Pin the Tail on Rudolph, there was something for everyone. A particular hit was Santa’s Grotto – the queue stretching all the way through the hall!
Thank you to everyone involved in organising and running the Christmas Fair. A huge amount of work in the preceding weeks, but much appreciated by all! Thank you also to all those who made donations and to everyone who came along. The Christmas Fair raised an amazing £2,300. Congratulations Greenleaf!
The highlight of this week’s Christmas Music Concert was the school “orchestra” created by the coming together of the violins, woodwind instruments, ukuleles and choir. A fabulous accomplishment, given the range of instruments and experiences.
Thank you to Keith, Mr Lambert and of course Mrs Keane – music at Greenleaf is all the richer for you!
