Plans for our upcoming Literary Festival are well underway. We would
like to say a huge thank you to the parents and carers who provided us
with some fantastic and exciting contacts in order to help make our
literary festival a success. We will be launching the festival after Easter
break where students, parents and carers will be given more information
regarding the event. LAB Literary Festival will take place the week
commencing the 10th of June and a number of competitions will be
running in the lead up to that week including writing and performing
contests. The successful candidates will be celebrated at an awards
ceremony open to parents, carers and the local community.
During the week, we have exciting events taking place where illustrators,
local writers and published authors will be coming into Leigh Academy
Blackheath to talk with and provide workshops for the students. We are
working closely with the local community and the organisers of
Greenwich Literary Festival to ensure that our festival is prodigious and
will be of stature in the community for many years to come.
We hope that this week will showcase the outstanding abilities of our
founding students and fill our budding young writers and illustrators
with inspiration for the future by getting tips from the best in the
As always, we appreciate your support; if you do have any additional
ideas or links, please get in touch via the school’s email address.
