This year, Year 7 pupils paid their respects for Remembrance Day by writing their own individual messages on poppies for those who had paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives during the war. All pupils showed a great level of maturity and there were some extremely heart-felt and poignant messages written. These will remain on display in the Year 7 school space until Friday 16th November.
Leonards Academy hosted two evenings of table tennis during the last week of October, with over 90
children involved from the Academy and the 7 other schools competing.
First it was
the turn of the Under 16 boys’ and girls’ teams, with The St Leonards Academy
entering 2 boys’ teams and one girls’ team. Our girls were triumphant taking
the top spot and not dropping a game throughout! They will now go on to the
East Sussex Schools Table Tennis finals to be held in...
Year 10 and 11 students
were given the opportunity to attend Amber Rudd’s Apprenticeship and Jobs Fair
on Friday 28th September. Students were able to browse 35 stands
from local businesses, colleges and apprenticeship providers and were given
help, advice and practical hands on tips. Year 11 students who
attended this event also participated in a question and answer session from a Barclays
Bank apprentice – who happened to be an alumni student!
Friday 28th September the Year 7 team held a cake sale in aid of
Macmillan Cancer Support. The event was fantastic, with a large number of
pupils bringing in cakes that they had been busy preparing the evening before.
From cupcakes to Victoria sponges, the cakes on offer were amazing, and were
sold throughout both break times on Friday to both staff and pupils who helped
us raise an amazing £195 for this fantastic charity. A special thank you should
be made to all of the pupils...
