Welcome to St. George’s School

GWKMy first few weeks as Acting Head seemed to have passed by in the blink of an eye.  

For Christians Easter speaks of the triumph of life over death, love over hate, and good over evil.  Despite what we hear and see in the news, we can have hope for the future because of that first Easter Day.

“According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (1 Peter 1:3)

St George’s looks forward to a Summer Term of lessons, GCSE’s, internal examinations, events & visits and hopefully better weather!

Please check the school holiday dates carefully available on the website.

Visitors from Hawes Side Academy came to St George’s this morning.

Vice Principal from Hawes Side, Mr Glynn  brought Mr Valana to see us and have a tour of our school. Mr Valana is a teacher from Finland he is currently being hosted in Blackpool by Hawes Side as part of their ongoing International links.

Mr Gaitazis and Mr Warnock completed a truly international meeting and exchanged views on the differences in education systems and work.

Mr Valana enjoyed his tour and joined in with some secondary age Science and Maths lessons.

 

Budding Ecologists

IMG_6668St George’s pupils were invited to join an Ecology survey in our Community Garden. Two Ecologists from Bowland Ecology had been commissioned to investigate wildlife on the surrounds of the school fields and welcomed the added interest shown by our young scientists.
The youngsters learnt about what signs to look for and how we could tell which animals had visited the area. They also found out more about what an ‘Ecologist’ was as a career interest.
It was their first visit to our garden area. It is managed by a local voluntary group led by Neil Froggett. The children also met Neil and several members of his group who were very busy clearing up the winter debris in the garden area ready for spring planting.

College Council Elections

college council yr 7Recently, students from all Colleges in Year 7 have volunteered to be part of the College Council and now we have a new layer of pupils shaping the school. The students were put through a rigorous selection process including a one to one interview with a representative of the current College Council. Those who made it through this stage in the process were then required to create a poster and speech as to why they feel they would be the best candidate for the job. After trying to persuade their peers to vote for them in our hustings, the Election Day arrived. This final stage then required all of Year 7 to vote for who they thought would be suited best for the council which resulted in 12 new additions to College Council.

 

Congratulations to the successful candidates and we look forward to their baptism into the Council in St George’s week.
