Over the past few weeks, children from years 1 to 6 have been taking part in athletic competitions against other schools from the New Mills, Chapel-en-le-Frith and Whaley Bridge areas. All the children that took part were a real credit to St George’s, did their best and had a great time. We are delighted that our Key Stage 1 team returned victorious as area champions beating a number of schools much bigger than ours. Our Key Stage 2 team also performed really well. There are a few photos from the Key Stage 2 event below.
A hugh well done to the school cross country team who competed at the area competition yesterday. With a large number of teams entering the event, we were very pleased to finish third, behind Hayfield and New Mills Primary, leaving us as the best placed finish amongst the area’s smaller schools.
Look at our photographs from the dress rehearsal for our key stage 2 production. We are looking forward to performing again tomorrow at 9.30 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. for our parents, families and friends.
Thankyou for all your support with our class challenge to raise money to sponsor a rainforest animal with the WWF. We have raised a massive £101.48 !! The children are going to discuss which animals they would like to sponsor and we will send an update after our Green Ambassadors meeting. Thanks again!

What a difference a week makes! In glorious sunshine, a team of twelve children took part in the New Mills area year 3 and 4 rounders competition this afternoon. They battled hard and lost out narrowly to St Mary’s in the final. Well done team.

Today we are being treated to the Junior production of ‘Let Loose!’ The tale is being told of last year’s ‘successful’ school residential trip to Slippery Slopes Activity Centre. After a series of failed tasks, loosing to Toffington College students, the St George’s pupils finally pull together to outwit Miss Finster and her students and have a midnight feast. A huge well done to all the children: those who have learnt their lines; the fabulous Year 3 choir and the children that sing solos and in groups.
