Our culture statement: We are fun. We are together.
Dear St. George's families,
What a fitting first three days back we have had so far this term. As it is St George's Day on Saturday, we have been busy learning all about St George and focussing our writing and art sessions on the saint our school is named after. Check out the news item below to see some of the great learning we got up to.
The Summer term has now begun and we have lots to look forward to. We have some St George's favourites, like Pajamarama, Sports Day, and Diversity Day and Evening.
We also have a couple of new events, including 'Be Brave' day, where we will be inviting pupils to come dressed as an inspirational figure who has shown bravery.
We hope this will be a great addition to the school calendar, especially as 'Be Brave' is such a big part of our school vision. Undoubtedly, we will see plenty of Martin Luther Kings, Suffragettes, and Greta Thunbergs... we cannot wait!
As ever, we wish you the very best of weekends, full of rest and fun, ready for learning on Monday.
The date for Sports Day has changed this year and so has the venue!
As Dulwich College sports track will now be having building works during our reserved date, Miss Michell has rearranged for Sports Day to be on 20th July at Ladywell Stadium.
As with last year, we will be asking families to go straight to the venue on the day. More information will be given nearer the time.
What A Difference A Dave Makes!
Next Friday, we will be bidding a fond farewell to our brilliant Premises Assistant, Dave (or 'Mr Dave', as he is known to the children!).
Dave has worked at St George's for 8 years and we will miss him lots but wish him all the best in his retirement.
The children will have the chance to say goodbye to Dave in Celebration Assembly next Friday.
If you see him before next Friday, please wish him well.
Lent Call Totals!
Ms Carney, our RE Lead, would like to announce that we fundraised a whopping £263.37 for the Lent Call before Easter, with help from our fabulous community.
We are so proud to have pupils who are such courageous advocates.
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.
