The Friends of St George's
The Friends are an active, enthusiastic and very friendly group of people who are keen to see St George’s Academy thrive and prosper. Not necessarily just parents and teachers, their major function is to raise money through a variety of events and schemes to support and reward the activities of our students.
This year the Friends have donated money towards:
- the Bookbuzz initiative ran by the Academy librarians, which provides all new year seven students with a free book to promote their love of reading.
- new leotards for the Academy gymnastics team, who placed a fantastic 12th in a national competition and looked very professional in their new team leotards.
- the building of a sensory garden, which is currently in the planning stages.
- a new outdoor table tennis table which all of the students will be able to use and enjoy.
