Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
On Friday 1st May, we celebrated being awarded our 4th Eco-Schools Green Flag Award by having an Eco Day of Action.
Each year group took part in exciting activities throughout the day. Some girls were getting creative in the garden by making flower crowns and doing some gardening. Others created beautiful artwork by recycling materials to make beehives and bees. Primary 5 were learning about sundials and made use of the sunshine to make their own.
We all got together to have an Eco Assembly in the afternoon to share what we had been up to. We learned about bees and watched an interesting video about or St George’s bee hive. During the day there was a competition to name the hive as well as the queen bee. The winning name for the hive was from Joanna in P6. She named it Honeycomb Cottage. The queen bee was named Queen Beetoria by Emily in P3. We look forward to welcoming Honeycomb Cottage and Queen Beetoria to our school grounds next term.
The girls were also busy outside taking part in our Daisy Chain Challenge. We had so many entries and some were over 6 metres long. Well done to Martha in P5 who was our winner with a chain measuring 6.7m!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Eco day of Action and for sending us so many wonderful photos of all the fun you had.
