Welcome to St. George’s School

February News  2015

Welcome to February which is one of the shorter months to be in school. Congratulations to the Year 8 boys Indoor Athletics team who finished first in the Championships. They will now go on to the Lancashire finals. Year 7 boys also came second and the girls third. We have just hosted two successful anti-bullying events. The first was the Princess Diana Ambassadors training event for the North West. The second was a Cyber bullying conference for all pupils to listen and learn. The impact and effects of bullying are an aspect of school we must continue to challenge and STOP.

RSPB Big School Birdwatch

Big Birdwatch 2015It was a busy morning for the RSPB Big School Birdwatch at St. George’s School  when a flock of pupils took part in the National Count of Wildlife on school grounds.
A group of 20 Year 7 and 8 pupils were out for the count as they provided a range of bird food and waited patiently to see what was coming to feed. There was plenty of action with a flock of starlings, robins, goldfinch, pied wagtails and blackbirds. Two Grey Squirrels proved a very popular sight for the watching and recording.
St. George’s School has worked with local groups to develop a garden area with paths, areas for wildlife, raised beds for growing plants and wetland areas for freshwater flora and fauna. This was the location for most of the nature watch.
On the field were a group of Oyster Catchers – more usually seen on the coast.
The highlight for many was counting and identifying the gulls that came to eat the bread – a VERY noisy and active event for both gulls and pupils!
With such enthusiastic wildlife watchers, St. George’s can look forward to supporting wildlife in their School Garden and on the grounds for many years to come!
