Our 8 anti-bullying ambassadors attended the Wirral Anti-Bullying Conference today at Woodchurch High School. They had a great day and were able to take part in a number of activities. The day was organised by Kayte Walsh of My Esteem. The children had the opportunity to work with drama and dance specialists and take part in art and craft activities all linked to anti-bullying. The children now have the task of passing on the important messages from today to the rest of the school.

Eco Green Flag Ceremony!, by Miss Jones
Date: 3rd Nov 2017 @ 12:10pm
We are currently celebrating the successful renewal of our Eco-School Green Flag! Eco-Schools is an international, pupil-led award programme that rewards schools for their sustainable actions. Our children, especially our Eco Warriors, were able to show knowledge, understanding and compassion as they led the assessors through St. George's Primary School in June 2017.
We were honoured to welcome the Mayor of Wirral, Mrs Ann McLachlan, and The Mayor's Consort, Mr Bill McLachlan, along with The Keeper of The Chains to St. George's Primary School on Thursday 2nd November 2017 to help us raise our Eco-Schools Green Flag. Governor Charlotte Scott and Eco-Schools assessors Lynn and Dave, also attended our Green Flag ceremony alongside our Eco Warriors - who were selected from a hat, as there are so many of us!
Madam Mayor and the Mayor's Consort were extremely impressed with our Eco Warriors and were interested in all of their hard work to ensure the renewal of the flag. Our Eco Warriors asked lots of fanstastic questions about the Mayor's role, and were even invited for a tour of Wallasey Town Hall in the New Year!
Please have a look through the images from our celebration!
