St Georges Primary School pupils dressed up for Red, White and Blue day.


CHILDREN wore red, white and blue to school in St Georges on Friday in tribute to Battle of Britain veterans.

It is 75 years since the end of the 
Battle of Britain, a pivotal moment in the nation’s history which saw RAF pilots stand up to wave after wave of German fighters and bombers – giving the message that they would never surrender.

But despite the years that have passed the victorious pilots were in the minds of pupils at St Georges Primary School on Friday, when they wore red, white and blue into school.

The non-uniform day was raising money for three armed forces charities, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and the RAF Benevolent Fund.
