St Georges Day- 23rd April 2021

To mark and celebrate St George's Day this year, we surprised the children with an ice cream van of their very own for the afternoon!

There was ice cream for all, with signature St George’s Day Red and White stripes!

It was an occasion most definitely enjoyed by all!

Half Term Hot Food Kitchen

We were honoured to host a ‘Half Term Hot Food Kitchen’ during the half term break. This was organised with the help of the Midland Langar Seva Society (MLSS)- a national society, with a Sikh ethos- ’serving humanity’, that strives to help those in need around the UK.

We were truly overwhelmed with the vast amount of donations we received from near and afar. This wealth of generous donation enabled us to not only provide local families and individuals with a hot meal daily, but also a meal parcel to take away; allowing them to make an additional meal from home. The turnout was phenomenal and we were lucky enough to serve over 1200 hot meals to children, their families and local individuals throughout the week.

The event also received some media coverage featuring on ‘Midlands Today’ and TNT News (a local news website). You can read and hear more about this event here: https://tntnews.co.uk/st-georges-school-food-bank-february-2021/

It really was a humbling experience for all those involved and the sense of community was well and truly ‘alive’.

Remembrance Day

On Remembrance Day children at St George’s gathered together as one community  and remembered those who served during the First World War, World War II and other conflicts around the world.

Edgbaston Christmas Lights Switch on

On Friday 22nd November, St George’s choir had a brilliant time performing at the Edgbaston Christmas Lights Switch on. The children performed some fantastic carols in front of hundreds of people and represented the school with pride. The children got the opportunity to meet Santa, feed a reindeer and two lucky children got the honour of pressing the plunger to switch on the lights!

We would like to thank all the wonderful parents and children who supported them by coming along and of course a big thank you to choir Pat for all her hard work.

 

 

Stringcredibles

On Thursday 21st November, we were delighted to have a performance from the amazing 'Stringcredibles'. This was an interactive performance workshop, delivered by a quartet of apprentices. It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase classical music and we were thrilled that they chose our school to be a part of it.
