Welcome to St. George’s School

March News  2015

A very busy and short half-term before we finish for the Easter Holidays. We are working hard to ensure that all Year 9 pupils get the options requested. This is not always easy as timetabling for a school and meeting personal needs is comparable to a giant jigsaw. However, we will strive to please everyone and feel very impressed by the popularity of more traditional option subjects. Do we have a future Prime Minister in school?

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!
