To Parents / Leith Academy Former Pupils – Many of our Parents / Families came to Leith Academy. Mrs Susan Mason asked us to pass on some sad news from our community….

Mr Fraser Mason sadly passed away on Tuesday last week. He was head of PE for many years at Leith and some families may remember him and perhaps like to know. There is an informal celebration of his life at Leith Dockers Club – 17-17A Academy Street. For catering, if people would like to attend, please email Fraser’s wife, Susan – Su.mo14@yahoo.co.uk.

Week 1 is complete, have a great weekend from all at Leith and we will see you on Monday morning.
