The Vicar for St Georges Church in Lee Mount.
We have enjoyed working with Gordon since his arrival not so long ago. Gordon has delivered some assemblies for us, we have performed our nativity production in his church and we recently worked with him and members of his congregation on a community garden project.

Lee Mount Nursing Home
At various times throughout the school year we love to visit the residents at Lee Mount Nursing Home. We share with them poems that we have written, drama performances and activities enjoyed in school.
We are currently working hard to practise Christmas carols to share later this month!
Gala in Shroggs Park
This year we were once again invited to take part in the Party in the Park that was held in Shroggs Park. Within our school tent we had a range of activities and games which, as last year, seemed to draw the biggest crowd! No theme this year (last year concentrated on the Queen's Jubilee celebrations) so we did our own thing. This is a real community event and we're proud to take part and be involved with so many other local organisations. The event was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone who supported us.

Highbury & Beech Hill Community Cohesion
We have been very pleased to have worked with the children and staff from these two schools for a number of years now. Both Beech Hill and Highbury have very different catchments to that of Lee Mount, and working together is a great opportunity to develop knowledge, understanding and tolerance of difference. Children from each school have visited the other two to both educate and entertain: last year Lee Mount took an Easter assembly performance round, while Beech Hill visited to explain through drama and dance the story of Eid, and Highbury enthralled us with their wheelchair dance routine. School councillors from all three schools have regular contacts and enjoy joint events – they recently had a joint look at bullying issues, which were then shared with all the children in all three schools. There are lots of future joint events planned – first up being Lee Mounts Nativity presentation.
