A primary school in St Georges gave children plenty of opportunities to celebrate St George's Day this week.
St George’s Church School, in Pastures Avenue, allowed children part of the brownies and scouts to dress up in their uniforms to mark the occasion on Monday.
A number of classes throughout the school also arranged St George’s Day activities, mixing the theme with the pupils’ usual lessons.
Year one children made some artwork, creating shields and dragons to tell the story of Saint George taming and slaying the fearsome creature.
Children in year five took part in some persuasive letter-writing, and wrote to Prime Minister Theresa May to request she makes St George’s Day a bank holiday.
Other pupils took part in drama sessions to tell the St George’s Day story.
Deputy headteacher Rachel Clark said St George’s Day is particularly relevant to the school, given its name.
