Saying Goodbye – Westbury Leigh Style

by Emma Waters last modified 23 Jul, 2020 10:42 AM

A creative way for Year 6 students to say goodbye to their primary school.

Saying Goodbye – Westbury Leigh Style

A busy and fun Leavers Day

Here is a report from Westbury Leigh C E Primary School -

"We always make leaving Year 6 a time of celebration and we certainly didn’t let this year be any different.  No one could have predicted how the events which have taken place over the last few months would turn out and although we are pretty sure no one minded SATs being cancelled, our school community certainly didn’t want Year 6 to feel disappointed that they would miss out on end of term leaver’s celebrations.

Our day of celebrations started with a cooked breakfast from Love Leigh Diner - sausage and bacon baps with hash browns, a chance to socialise and catch up over breakfast.

Our usual school shirts signing was a little different this year but the job got done!

Year 6 were able to continue their celebrations outside with ‘Westbury Leigh Pod’s got Talent’ and the Leavers Assembly - both took place on the outside stage.

Mrs Grimsey, Headteacher explained, ‘Despite it being a challenging and unique year for our year 6s, they have embraced every opportunity and been an inspiration to us all.  We are very proud of them and we are delighted to have said goodbye through a special day in school.’

Celebrations continued on the school field with a picnic lunch and a Hollywood style photo shoot in a specially decorated marquee.

Nicol said ‘I thought it was brilliant because everyone got to celebrate but a bit differently.’

Sam said ‘Our leavers day was a blast.  Even though times have been hard, WLPS put amazing effort in, so we could do some of the things we had missed out on like Westbury Leigh’s Got Talent, receiving our Year Books and walking out to our School song during assembly outside, and everyone loved it.’  

Westbury Leigh Primary School says ‘Well done Year 6 - be inspired to flourish, aspire to great things and achieve beyond expectation“
