Our culture statement: We are fun. We are together.
Dear St. George's families,
It has been a fun end to the week here at St. George's, with the whole school dressed in red to raise money for Red Nose Day. A big thank you to everyone who took part.
In other fundraising news, Miss Carney has been really pleased with the way that our Lenten fundraising has started. By now, most of you will know what your individual class will be getting up to. If not, look out on SchoolPing for updates.
As you all know, we love Science at St. George's so we have continued our tradition of participating in British Science Week. Mr Bayne, our Science lead, has been really impressed with the scientific thought on show in all year groups this week. Check out the news item below to see what we all got up to.
Next week, our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils will be off on their residential trip to PGL. We know they will have a great time and have many opportunities to 'Be brave', like we say in our vision statement! We look forward to sharing some of the fun they get up to in next week's newsletter.
As ever, we wish you the very best of weekends, full of rest and fun, ready for learning on Monday.
A reminder to everyone that Healthy Tuck Shop continues every Friday, because of School Council's campaigning.
Pupils can bring in their 50p to exchange for healthy snacks.
First News Ukraine Schools Appeal
On the last day of Half Term, St. George's will be joining First News's Ukraine Schools Appeal.
To help fundraise for the Disasters Emergency Committee, we will ask everyone to come in wearing yellow and blue, the colours of the Ukrainian flag, in exchange for £1.
To find out more about the appeal, please click here.
A Call to Action by School Council!
School Council have been listening to the views of pupils from across the school. One of the big items that pupils have wanted is a net to cover the football cage to stop balls from going over the fence.
We have had a quote given to us for the net which comes in at £860. Not put off by the large number, School Council will be speaking to the school to find out ways we can fundraise to purchase the net.
Remember, if you have any ideas, School Council needs you!
A reminder that you can access parental support on Monday, Wednesday or Friday from Carley between 9:00am and 9:30am.
If you would like support for any issues or guidance to external agencies, Carley is here to help.
She is also available on the gate at the end of the day every evening.
At St. George's we say 'We are fun. We are together.' That includes our parents and wider community.
