Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
Wednesday 3 October marked the 130th anniversary of St George’s School for Girls. The Junior School day started with an assembly where we sang happy birthday to St George’s and cut an enormous cake. Every girl wore her House t-shirt to school that day so the hall was bright and colourful.
At break time, everyone enjoyed a piece of birthday cake and then we joined the rest of the school, who were also wearing their House t-shirts, for an aerial photograph of the school community in the shape of number ‘130’.
After that, each class had planned various activities to celebrate the birthday and to recognise famous pioneering woman. Some of the classes wrote about women who have inspired them and the younger classes wrote about what they would like to be when they grow up. There were some amazing and interesting pieces of writing!
At the end of the day, there was a big party on the school playing field. There were lots of stalls to choose from: there was bouncy castle, a face-painting stall, beat the goalie, an ‘Aunt Sally’ stall where the girls had to throw sponges at some brave teachers and a tight-rope where the girls demonstrated their balancing skills. And lots more!
The day ended with ice-cream for all. What a great day we all had! Some girls said that it was “The best day ever!” Thank you to all who organised the event!
