Welcome to St. George’s School

NOVEMBER 2014 

Can anyone stop Lincoln winning a second Challenge Cup?
We have started the new half term with a special service to commemorate All Souls on Monday 3rd November.
We continue the hectic start by providing support for the visit of the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu to Blackpool Tower.  Year 11 Senior Prefects have been proudly selected to represent Blackburn Diocese in support of the event.  Our main theme during this busy and exciting time of the year are Remembrance, Peace, Respect, Reverence, Advent and Waiting, Thankfulness and Christmas Gifts.
Please see our Headteachers Comments for November, as we finish by remembering those that have fallen serving this Country.

‘Poetry Jam’ – Competition organised by the English Dept

On the 11th November the English department held a ‘poetry jam’ for our Year 9 students to celebrate their achievements.  It was delightful to see so many aspiring wordsmiths take to the stage and show off their similes, metaphors and personification.  The poetry ranged from the amusing, with Kieron’s poem about Chillies, to the sincere with Aisha’s poem about her Granddad.  It was tough competition but in the end the judges decided that Lucy Green’s poem about her Grandma was the best for its imagery, passion and excellent structure.  Read the poem and I’m sure you’ll agree it was a very worthy winner.  We wait, with much anticipation, the Poetry Jam 2015!

Grandma’s Gone

No more cookies, fresh from the kitchen,
No more stories, from her collection,
No more kisses, on our cuts and bruises,
Now that she’s gone, everyone loses.
Grandma’s gone,
Tears everywhere,
Grandma’s gone,
Sadness in the air.
And even though I’m sad,
It isn’t all that bad,
For quick and painlessly you went,
And now to Grandpa you’ve been sent.
Grandma’s gone,
Tears everywhere,
Grandma’s gone,
Sadness in the air.
Now, as we try to be okay,
You’ll be with us every day,
No matter how lost we’ll be,
You’ll be in our memory.
