Welcome to St. George’s School

January News  2015

Welcome back to a new year and a new term. Thank you for all your  support during the recent weather warnings.

We have two Anti-Bullying events to help maintain the focus on addressing issues surrounding bullying. On the 20th January we  hosted  the successful Princess Diana Anti-Bullying Conference for up to 400 young people. Also, on the 30th January we will be welcoming Danny Dearden (X Factor) to host a Cyber-Bullying awareness day.

 Year 9 Options Evening is on 12th February 2015. Timings and further details will follow.

We also are  marking the Christian season of Epiphany  that extends our celebrations to the final celebration in Christmas season of CandleMass in early February. This season of Epiphany celebrated by all churches marks the showing of Jesus to all people in the world beginning with kings travelling by the light of a star to find baby Jesus. Therefore the white lights are added to represent the guiding star light. Every day in our school assemblies a Candle is lit to remind us of Jesus’ presence in the World.
For this extended season we share this festival with the local community by keeping our tree lit until 2nd. of February. Enjoy!!!

Year 8: Find out how they could be ‘Tomorrow’s Engineers’

It’s never too early to start thinking about future careers! This week Year 8 got an exciting insight into the world of engineering.

They learnt about the wealth of engineering careers there are, some they had never heard of! The variety of type of problems engineers solve seemed endless as they were taken through a special presentation and a range of workshops.

The event was sponsored by BAE systems and was supported by two of their engineers who gave pupils an insight into their careers.

The pupils had the opportunity to compete against each other in a robot task, and interactive quiz as well as have a go at designing aircraft of the future.

High Adventure 2015

photo (28)
50 Year 7 pupils went on a residential visit to High Adventure Outdoor Education Centre Near Skipton, North Yorkshire.
 
They took part in Climbing, Abseiling, High Ropes, Caving, Archery and Team Building activities such as ‘Sumo Suits’ and the ‘Labyrinth’ (Which is a unique use of the basement at the centre).  
 
The students were true ambassadors of St George’s; all attempted all of the activities even if they were a little ‘scary’ to begin with (and tired because they were too excited to sleep!). 
 
This annual trip was yet again another huge success held in a different environment. It also provided lasting memories for those who went – boosted by lots of snow!
