We have just enjoyed two days of very special learning in every classroom up and down the corridors, and across both sites at St George's. 

 

All of our lessons in every year group focused on a very beautiful book: Orion and the Dark.  

 

Our children responded brilliantly, really enjoyed this experience and have produced some high quality outcomes.  We are very proud of you, well done.

Mermaid Trial - New Brighton, by Cassidy

Date: 13th Mar 2017 @ 3:15pm

In an open competition, schools and arts-based groups from across Wirral were invited to submit their ideas for decorating six identical mermaid sculptures, which will be installed this May in New Brighton as part of a colourful new tourist trail.

 

The results are in, and St George's Primary School has submitted a winning design!

 

A group of children will be selected to turn the design on paper into a reality. We are over the moon to have been selected. Our pupils will be thrilled and proud to create artwork for the enjoyment of our local community. Our mermaid will take people on a journey back in time to a dark yet glowing evening at New Brighton fairground

 

The Trail will be placed at strategic locations in New Brighton, inspired by and celebrating the resort’s history, heritage, and its links with the mythical ‘Black Rock Mermaid’, who was said to have appeared to a local sailor in New Brighton in the 18th century.

If you would like more information about the project, please read the online press release: http://wirralview.com/news/mermaid-trail-designers-announced-designs-remain-under-wraps

E-safety Information Evening - Monday 13th February 2017 at 5pm, by Cassidy

Date: 13th Mar 2017 @ 3:14pm

 

We have been made aware of the app Music.ly, a popular app used by children to create videos and chat with others – including strangers. Over the past 6 months, the High Tech Crime Unit of Merseyside Police has seen an increase in complaints with regards to strangers pretending to be much younger than they are and making contact with children.

 

Please continue to be vigilant when your children are using phones and other technology. It is not the Apps themselves which cause concern, it is the abuse which can occur when certain users use these products to target vulnerable children.

 

As a school, we are aware of the possible dangers that come with using Social Media and the Internet, as such, we are proactive in taking every precaution to ensure that our school community remains safe when online. Please find below popular apps used by children and their minimum age:

The NSPCC have some useful information to support parents to keep their children safe online.

We have arranged an e-safety information evening for parents and carers at 5pm on Monday, 13th February at upper site on Claremount Road. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to make an appointment to speak with Mr Keaney or a member of the SLT.
