Clean Air Campaign 2019!, by Miss Jones
Date: 5th Jul 2019 @ 2:46pm
"Air pollution is the largest environmental risk to our health in the UK."
- Wirral Council, 2019
St. George's has teamed up with Wirral Council in support of their Clean Air Campaign! To ensure a healthier environment and a cleaner quality of air for our children and their furtures, we are encouraging everyone to make more eco-friendly choices in day-to-day life.
Our Eco Warriors helped spread awareness of the damaging effects of air pollution by talking to the Council and holding banners. In the coming weeks, our Eco Warriors will be collaborating with our Mini Police to help spread awareness of the damaging effects of air pollution.
Here are a few handy tips on how to help from Wirral Council:
- Switch off and save. If you’re in the car and at a stop, don’t leave your engine ticking over. This will prevent excessive air pollution and save you fuel. Turning off your engine when parked, loading or waiting at the roadside will save you money on fuel. It will also help look after you and your family’s health and the health of your community. Drivers may be fined for not switching off their engine when asked by an officer. Save money. Switch off. You’re the key!
- Take your feet to the street. Ditch the car and walk to school, to work or to the shops
- Take to two wheels. Leave the car at home and cycle or scoot
- Regularly service your car. Make sure it runs as efficiently and cleanly as possible
- Keep your car tyres inflated. Properly inflated tyres mean your car will be more efficient and use less fuel
- Carpool! Ask a colleague or friend to car share if travelling to the same place and share fuel and parking costs
- Ditch the car. Try an alternative transport option - buses, trains or even the ferry.
Pledge, change, save and #BeTheKey!

2B Liverpool Art Inspired by Ian Fennelly, by Miss Mulheirn
Date: 2nd Jul 2019 @ 3:09pm
2B have had an excellent day creating paintings of Liverpool landmarks inspired by local artist Ian Fennelly.
We studied photographs of The Three Graces extremely carefully before choosing our favourite landmark. We started by tracing the shape of the building with out fingers before drawing the shape onto our paper. Then we used black pens and watercolour paints to decorate our buildings. We tried very hard to blend the paints with the right amount of water and to stay in the lines. After lunch, we added detail and windows to our drawings, trying to keep them as realistic as possible. Here are some photos of us creating our work and our finished products!
Well done 2B!

Tae kwon-do black belt, by Cassidy
Date: 13th Jul 2019 @ 7:08pm
We are delighted to report on the achievement of Beatrice Bartram in year 5.
Bea has been training since May 2015 and on 12 April 2019 she took her grading for her 1st Dan Black Belt. bea is a member of Wirral & Chester Tae Kwon-Do which is a member of the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB) recognised in the UK through UK Sport & Sport England and World-Wide though Tae Kwon-Do International. For her training she follows the same syllabus as adult students, and the absolute minimum time it takes from White Belt (Beginners) to 1st Dan Black Belt is 3.5 years. Many students during their training will compete locally, Nationally or Internationally, and will help out in class supporting other students.
Tae Kwon-Do is a traditional Martial Art from Korea and includes Patterns (a set of sequenced moves), Theory, Sparring and focuses on Self Defence.
In preparation for their grading, students will train at least twice a week, often 3-4 times per week, and attend 3 “Pre-Grading Sessions” with one of the Senior Members of the TAGB (All either 8th Dan World Masters or 9th Dan Grand Masters). The grading itself is held in the TAGB Headquarters in Bristol in front of 5, 9th Dan Grand Masters.
On this occasion over 500 students took the Grading for their 1st Dan or higher Black Belts around 400 of those were grading for their 1st Dan (the same as Beatrice) and we are amazingly proud, that the Grand Masters of the TAGB considered Beatrice to be “The Bestin Grading” Student out of all of those grading for 1st Dan, an amazing testament to the High Level to which Beatrice Trains. We have attached Photographs of Beatrice Receiving her award at the recent Welsh National Championship in Cardiff, from Grand Master Oliver.
