school Lee Common School
By Arabella Norton

The children have had a number of interesting visitors to the school, all of whom have greatly enriched their understanding and knowledge of different topics. The variety covered is quite astonishing.

Firstly the children enjoyed a show from the Star Puppet Theatre Company who came to give them a rendition of ‘Mother Goose’ to support the work they are doing on traditional tales. The following week they had a talk from a member of staff from College Lake, Tring in which they learnt about nature reserves and the conservation of wildlife. Also, they have had a visit from a member of Birmingham’s Sikh Community who came to explain about the Sikh way of life and gave the children a musical presentation and an art and craft workshop. The school nurse has been in to explain about safety and medicines to Years 1 and 2. The children have also had a wonderful performance of various woodwind instruments from the High Wycombe Music Service.

Thanks must go to Mrs Kenyon for her work with the children on planting seeds. This, coupled with our work on recycling and healthy living, is all part of working towards the Bronze Eco Award for Schools.

In addition to learning about the world around us, the school is supporting as their charity the work of OXFAM by collecting used stamps.

We are delighted that Emma Crane is joining the Governing Body as the new Parent Governor.

Finally, we are very sad to be saying goodbye to Mrs Shirley Evans at the end of this term. Mrs Evans is a former pupil of the school and will be greatly missed. We are very grateful to her for her many years of hard work. If anyone would like to contribute to Mrs. Evans’ leaving present, there is a collection envelope in the school office. I am sure you will all join us in wishing Mrs Evans all the best for the future.
