St Georges’s Day

On Monday 23rd April we celebrated St Georges’s Day in assembly. The Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts were all welcome to come to school in their uniforms: what a smart and colorful group they look too.

We learned about the real St George. Saint George was made patron saint of England in the 15th century by King Edward III because he had the special characteristics of bravery, strong faith in Christianity and generosity. However, he didn’t ever visit this country, and is buried in Israel. We listened to the story of George and the Dragon and we listed to Jerusalem on the way into and out of assembly.


All that was missing was a few flags to wave!
