We are looking forward to welcoming the children back to school next week. On the first day we will be giving out our class ‘Start of Year’ letter. It can be viewed by clicking here. The swimming consent form mentioned in the letter can also be downloaded by clicking here.
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.
Every few weeks, representatives from locals schools meet at the council offices in New Mills to discuss issues affecting them and their schools. They plan activities to create links and fundraising events for charities. The group is looking forward to travelling to London in the summer to visit the Houses of Parliament. Two of our children represent our school and school council at the meetings.
This week eight of our year 5 and year 6 girls went to New Mills High School to take part in the area Dance Festival. They have spent weeks choreographing their routine and practising to make it perfect. On the day, they dressed up to perform. Well done girls – a fabulous effort and you represented St George’s brilliantly.
