Candles by Candlelight

A wonderful performance last night by our choir and instrumentalists!Thank you to all parents who came, sang along, had mince pies, coffee and tea the odd tipple of mulled wine. It was a perfect way to get together and celebrate Christmas. Special thanks to Mrs F and Miss S for the hours of after school and lunchtime rehearsals'.

Party Time!

Co-operation, team work, trust, wonder, endeavour and lots of love were evident at our Christmas parties yesterday. How fantastic are these children!

St George's Crypt

Parents, friends, children and staff of Lady Elizabeth Hastings have been collecting during the Advent season for St George's Crypt. It was great to meet Arja Copperwheat yesterday to hear how all your wonderful gifts will be used to help homeless people in Leeds. Arja spoke about the little things we do can make a big difference and when one person acts, others will follow. Over the festive period, we will remember the story of the starfish and the man who walked along the beach and how our actions have made others happy. Many thanks to Mrs D and the School Council for coming up with the idea and an extra special 'shout out' to Miss C in making it happen!


On Thursday our Reception children and new starters received a copy of their very own Bible.

The Ark Nativity

Well done to all the children in Ledston and Wheler. Their production of 'The Christmas Jigsaw' was amazing. Great singing, superb acting and a joy to watch. A big thank you to everyone who supported this performance!
